I'm working on a function to extract text from a .txt.gz file in a container field:
//SM_TextFromGZIP ( containerFieldName ) import java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream; import java.util.io.*; GZIPInputStream gunzip = new GZIPInputStream(fmpro.getContainerStream(containerFieldName)); InputStreamReader reader = new InputStreamReader(gunzip); BufferedReader pr = new BufferedReader(reader); String line; String finalOutput = \"\"; while ((line = pr.readLine()) != null) finalOutput += line; return finalOutput; When I run this, I get this from the SMLastStackTrace function:
java.io.IOException: com.prosc.fmkit.types.FMBinary$FMContainerInputStream.read() returned value out of range -1..255: -117 at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.readUByte(GZIPInputStream.java:250) at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.readUShort(GZIPInputStream.java:237) at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.readHeader(GZIPInputStream.java:140) at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.<init>(GZIPInputStream.java:56) at java.util.zip.GZIPInputStream.<init>(GZIPInputStream.java:65) at sun.reflect.NativeConstructorAccessorImpl.newInstance0(Native Method) ... Any thoughts on a fix or alternative solution?
My old fp7 solution had some fields that store the path to external pdf files, the files were stored in the same server machine and the path were like "file://oldserver/folder/file", the pdf files are shown in the solution through a webviewer field. The solution is developed under the 'separation model'.
I just converted the solution to FM15 and I moved into a new server, at present I have both servers up and running, so the fmp12 database with fields pointing to "file://oldserver/folder/file" still shows pdf files as expected.
Given that I want the paths to point to a certain folder into the new server I'm trying to find the right path to the new location of files but so far I haven't been able even thought I made sure that users fmserver and fmsadmin have full permissions on the folder that stores the pdf files.
On the other hand I've seen that FMS15 creates a folder named "RC_Data_FMS" with a subfolder for each fmp12 file where the external container data is meant to be stored. Am I forced to store my pdf files in there OR somewhere else in the network?
Thank you in advance.

Is it possible to sync data in a Filemaker portal to an external MySQL database? For example, an invoice listing multiple products stored in another table (assuming I only want the information in the portal, such as qty, name, price).
Or do we have to manually sync all related tables behind the scenes and then re-create the relationships using joins later?

With MirrorSync 3 set to come out at DevCon, what is going to happen to people who have existing MirrorSync 2 licenses?
We're about to buy a MirrorSync license. Do we need to wait for 3 to be released first in order to avoid an immediate upgrade two weeks later?
ATLANTA, GA – July 6, 2016 – 360Works will be attending the 2016 FileMaker Developer Conference beginning July 17, 2016 in Las Vegas with a brand new version of 360Works MirrorSync, a FileMaker synchronization tool, being unveiled.
