What are the different ways to update FileMaker database. I Was looking into creating a custom solution that would query and update data  in a FileMaker database ? Is there any web service APIs that can be invoked from a third-party application?

Your options are (excluding WebDirect)

- a FileMaker Pro or FM Go client

- a custom web app that uses the built-in PHP API

- a custom web app that uses the native XML API

- a custom web app that uses one of the "derived" open source APIs that people have created over the years for .NET, Ruby, Python,... or RESTful constructions like RESTfm (open source) or 360Works' Web Services Manager (paid)

- any application that can use ODBC or JDBC (as long as you install the FM xDBC drivers)
