    Unanswered: Can jdbc be used to get data on a Filemaker server?

    Jdbc can be used on Filemaker for publishing on the Internet,
    which requires the db files to be placed in the Web folder on a web server.

    However, I am wondering whether I can use jdbc to get data reciding
    on a Filemaker Pro Server.

    Environment: Some Filemaker Pro:s set up in a LAN with a FM Server 5.5.

    Can it be done?

    If not, some other suggestion?

    (Why do this at all?
    = The retrieved info is input to a java app,and now each time the program is to be run, the db files' info on the server must be exported manually to a Excel sheet first. )

    Yes, FMP does have JDBC support. Remember though all your permissions wil have to done within FMP-Im not sure you can issue change permissions requests through JDBC.

    You might need 6 as well...

    No jdbc in filemaker use web companion module so db file did not have to be placed in a special forlder.
    Only cdml base file must be placed in web folder. For java application you do not need to do that just enable web companion sharring.

    No JDBC can not use directly Filemaker Server, cause jdbc use the web companion module. So you always need Filemaker pro (not server) running with the db (that can comme from FMP server)

    And when using Jdbc with many user you will need to use Filemaker pro unlimited.
