  1. I tried copying a working FM11PA application and ~/Library/FileMaker from Mavericks and receive the same error as above after dragging in the app to Sierra. This work for me In /Applications folder of the system running Mavericks compress FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced Copy the archive and the ~/Library/Application\ Support/FileMaker folder to the sierra system's /Applications and Application Support folder respectively Decompress Launch For some reason copying the folder did not.
  2. I run FM11PA on a MacMini in macOS Sierra; I only use the ER diagram to draft new databases I do not know if it works with everything desktop, but it appears impossible to install under macOS Sierra, looks like it has to be preinstalled when you do the upgrade from MacOS X 10.10.
  3. I have a MacMini running macOS Sierra with FM11PA that works; however this FM11PA was installed when there was MacOS X 10.10 on the MacMini. Attempting to install FM11PA on my MB15R fails, well the installer appears to work fine( as pr attached image, ) but launching the app( as pr attached image ) tells me somebody has been fiddling with the installation and that I have to reinstall the application.
  4. @wattmhite if you are on a mac http://xmplifyapp.com may or may not ease the work of making an XSLT aka stylesheet that @comment proposes you make. It works fine for 14 days without a license. I also do recommend you make 1 XML export from FileMaker with sample data and test your XSLT using xsltproc in iTerm2.app or Terminal.app I have built integrations between FileMaker and several formats( most of them using XML, ) feel free to PM.
  5. When exporting XML as fmxmlresult.xml when does FileMaker populate the content of the layout attribute? Usually it looks like <DATABASE DATEFORMAT="D/m/yyyy" LAYOUT="" NAME="Menu.fp7" RECORDS="51" TIMEFORMAT="k:mm:ss "/> Yet sometimes it looks like this <DATABASE DATEFORMAT="D/m/yyyy" LAYOUT="menu" NAME="Menu.fp7" RECORDS="51" TIMEFORMAT="k:mm:ss "/> Then again when querying the XML RPC it always look like this <datasource database="Menu.fp7" date-format="MM/dd/yyyy" layout="menu" table="Menu" time-format="HH:mm:ss" timestamp-format="MM/dd/yyyy HH:mm:ss" total-count="0" /> Asking the question myself, answering the question myself as well. Checking the following checkbox populates the LAYOUT-attribute of FMPXMLRESULT
  6. Anything from 2-5 secs for PDF to write to disk in full depending on server spec may be needed. Or do shell script server side "sync;sync" if the server is a mac.
  7. I do this all the time in FileMaker since 2000 actually; however I only use FileMaker to trigger a script, in 2013 I shared my approach with the world on my blog: http://wethecomputerabusersamongst.blogspot.com/2013/10/execute-php-script-from-filemaker-with.html The example in the blog is in php from the time of implementing FX.php around the time of FM 5.5; however these scripts can be written in any language swift kitura, apache CGI/php/python, nginx FAST CGI, nodejs express, ruby sinatra, and so on just to mention a few; all those scripting languages can listen to a HTTP GET requests from FileMaker and call any HTTP request sync or async that populates a database. Captchas may or may not stop you; depending on the page.
  8. I do recommend http://www.getsync.com, it's for free unless you feel like buying an upgrade to gain features, it's endpoint to endpoint encrypted and it's only on the drives you share it with.
  9. I run MacOS X 10.6.4( and its default JDK / JRE ) with FM11SA; it works out of the box. Newer versions of MacOS X may work, but usually only as upgrades from what I mentioned in the previous sentence. The admin console crashes at times and it's a pity for schedules, however I have made a solution using postgreSQL's JDBC FDW that actually works more reliably than the admin console. I have published some writing on my blog: http://wethecomputerabusersamongst.blogspot.com/2016/08/building-filemaker-cache-in-postgresql.html
  10. How can I get ESS access to PostgreSQL from FM11SA?
  11. How would you query Nutch or SOLR from within FileMaker? SOLR and elasticsearch are both interfaces on top of lucene. SOLR does not have aggregation; and as such would not have the features I would need to speed up searches. I'm not sure which complexity you are trying to get rid of. "Don't forget about the aggregations ElasticSearch provides for those requiring OLAP like functionality. Solr cloud has only limited faceting. And if you need alerts on aggregations ES percolation delivers." – http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10213009/solr-vs-elasticsearch
  12. I'm not sure if I would involve logstash and kibana in such a matter, however writing the FileMaker data to Elasticsearch could improve search speed especially when search criteria is in related fields.
  13. Like Blackwell says: Stating your rights and enforcing them are two different items. What you ask is basicly a patent question; the short version of this is you are not interesting in the enforcing part, you would like your client to sign the papers that they understand the line between ownerships( your solution and their data ) this paper should be a threat enough for them not to steal from you. Neither you nor your client should be interested in bringing that paper to court, that would mean you both loose massive amounts of hours, however if you can invoice such a time spent on defending yourself based on the initial paper and this is clearly stated in the agreement you have effectively shrunk the upside of stealing your IP.
  14. I would really like to see FileMaker cloud run on triton containers / Joyent SmartOS [on-prem]
  15. That's my point exactly you can use test data as perfect as you like, but when there are actual exceptions 7 months or 5 years down the road, you can not cherry pick your situation. I also always fill in: <PRODUCT BUILD="LocalPathToDevFolder/opt/dev/TheIntegrationPartner/implementation" NAME="TheIntegrationPartner" VERSION="TimeStampOfImplentation"/> and: <DATABASE LAYOUT="TheExternalScriptNameInWhichAlsoHasItsOwnLayout" NAME="FileMakerSolution Name" in production with data that describes the situation, even though FileMaker never bothered to use any of them for anything at all( input or output, ) oh well NAME="filemakerfilename" and PRODUCT is used for exports, but useless in most integrations, yet valid for some web aspects.
