.com Solutions Inc., a developer of multi-platform database development tools, has released FmPro Migrator 1.86 for MacOS X with enhanced functionality for FileMaker 7. FmPro Migrator for MacOS X leverages new FileMaker database engine features which have not previously been available in order to provide automated FileMaker to FileMaker 7 database table consolidations. Migrating multiple FileMaker database files into a single FileMaker 7 database file enables developers to take advantage of the enhanced security model incorporated within FileMaker 7.
The new FileMaker database engine within FileMaker 7 makes it possible to create FileMaker database tables with SQL commands. In prior versions of FileMaker, it was necessary to create database files (tables) manually by using the FileMaker graphical interface. This meant that it was previously not possible to automate the creation of new FileMaker database files. FileMaker 7 incorporates newly designed, FileMaker database engine technology which enables the creation of the database structure through the use of SQL commands.
FileMaker 7 now includes the capability of storing multiple database tables within a single database file. Previous FileMaker versions placed only one single table within each database file. FmPro Migrator for MacOS X can migrate each separate database file into one single database file containing multiple tables - one new table for each original database file. The data within each of the individual FileMaker database files is quickly and accurately transferred into FileMaker 7 via the FileMaker data import feature.
With previous versions of FileMaker, developers were required to develop their own security mechanism within their FileMaker solutions. Developers can now leverage the new security model within FileMaker 7 to develop more secure solutions with less development effort. In order to take advantage of this new security model, developers must consolidate multiple database tables into a single FileMaker 7 database file. FmPro Migrator for MacOS X and Windows enables developers to perform FileMaker to FileMaker 7 table consolidations. FmPro Migrator also insures that column names are compatible with SQL commands sent to the database.
New Features of FmPro Migrator for MacOS X include:
-- Speed FileMaker 7 Migration Projects - Retyping dozens or hundreds of field names into a new database structure is time consuming and error prone. Leveraging the new FileMaker database engine technology within FileMaker 7 enables these previously manual tasks to be automated with FmPro Migrator for MacOS X.
-- Utilize the New FileMaker 7 Security Model - Consolidating multiple database files into a single FileMaker 7 database file enables developers to utilize the new FileMaker 7 security model. FileMaker solutions can be developed in less time and with better security by utilizing the new FileMaker 7 security model.
-- Improve Migration Accuracy - The migration of database structure and data is automated by FmPro Migrator, thus eliminating errors introduced by manual tasks. JPEG images, large text fields and special characters are transferred to FileMaker 7 via the built-in data import feature without compromising the accuracy of the data.
-- Migrate Previous FileMaker versions to FileMaker 7 - FmPro Migrator for Windows can migrate multiple FileMaker database files into a single FileMaker 7 database file. Managing a single FileMaker 7 database file improves the security and manageability of the FileMaker 7 database solution. Files are easier to back up, restore and copy between servers when only one single file is being managed instead of dozens of separate files.
