FmPro Migrator

FmPro Migrator migrates FileMaker databases to MySQL, Oracle, Access, SQL Server, Sybase, DB2, OpenBase, PostgreSQL and FrontBase. Perl CGI scripts are generated for each FileMaker layout within the database, and include customized data entry and data validation for each layout field. FileMaker to FileMaker 7/8/9/10 table consolidations are also supported, thus enabling developers to take advantage of the new FileMaker 7+ security model. Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, and Bento files can also be migrated to FileMaker 7/8/9/10/11. FileMaker Pro layouts are migrated to PHP, LiveCode, Servoy, and Access Forms/Reports.

          Release Notes: A Basic Authentication implementation was added for generated PHP Web applications. This feature includes both login and role-based authentication throughout the application. The built in roles are intended to provide the same functionality as the original FileMaker database Privilege Sets, including: [Full Access], [Read-Only Access], [Data Entry Only], and [Edit Only]. Additional roles can be added to any converted layout controller file as needed. An issue which would prevent single value checkboxes (1/0 value) to not get unset in the database if unchecked was fixed.

An issue which caused jqGrid objects to display an error message in found set mode was fixed.
