Has anyone successfully developed a method of updating a fmp12 file on an IOS device?

I have a critical business need for this functionality and i'd love it if the forum could point me in the right direction.

As i understand it data sync can be done with commercially available products by Seedcode and 360works.

Katherine Russell of Nightwing has authored a great paper on custom data sync solutions http://www.filemaker.com/solutions/ios/docs/fmi_guide_sync_en.pdfbut it does not seem to allow for closing the godeployed file, which is required for update.

 

Any resources out there that i'm missing?

 

Anybody done this that has a file they could share?

 

I'm really not interested in buying a plug in.

TIA

K

It's a bit buried, but it's there : http://fmeasysync.com/docs-easydeploy/

 

We have come to the conclusion that a local file is the most reliable updater. Although there exist 1-click techniques, we have found that FMGo doesn't reliably close files when you use OnTimer tricks to pass control to another file.
