JDBC access to FMP 5 database - 07-09-2005 , 12:14 AM
Quick question for all you seasoned veterans of Filemaker. Here is
what I need to do. Any feedback or comments on how to best accomplish
this would be greatly appreciated.
I have a person who is creating a FileMaker Pro 5 database on a Mac.
I want to develop a java application using JDBC accessing that
database, but I need to write/test it on a Windows platform. Later it
will be deployed to a Mac app server.
I have had trouble figuring out what exactly I need to do to accomplish
this on my (Windows) end to access his database. I have nothing but my
Java environment, and we are on phicically different networks.
Do I need to get the JDBC Driver from him?
Can he just send me database files in order to connect to his database?
Or do I need to have something running on my machine in order to have
the JDBC driver access the database?
Sorry for such basic questions, but I have been searching the web
Thanks in advance!
