The Book of FileMaker 6 is a complete reference to the FileMaker Pro product line, a cross-platform relational database management system for large workgroups, small businesses, and database-driven Web sites. Whether you're using FileMaker to run your office or e-Commerce Web site, or to develop commercial FileMaker applications, this complete guide shows how to create robust and dynamic database systems from the ground up.
The book introduces the FileMaker Pro development environment (and relational databases in general), but quickly progresses to in-depth discussions of advanced topics such as Web-enabling databases, integration with external applications, ODBC, XML, using plugins, professional development and project planning techniques, and much more. The CD-ROM includes hundreds of complete, ready-to-use example databases discussed in the book.
