FileMaker Pro

To the uninitiated, this may look merely like a simple Web form, but to the true FileMaker aficianado it's the blessed return of CDML.  About ten years ago, Claris Corp. unveiled their first officially sanctioned method for publishing FileMaker data on a website. It was called CDML for Claris Dynamic Markup Language. Simple and inexpensive to implement, CDML was embraced by thousands of FileMaker customers, many of whom continue to use it to this day. Yet within days of Claris’s reorganization into FileMaker Inc., plans were being drawn up to retire CDML and its companion authoring tool, Claris Home Page. The death blow came with FileMaker 7, which dropped support for CDML.
