MacWeb.com on Thursday announced that its first product, iApp Server, is now shipping. The middleware tool installs as an Apache 1.3 module — a 4D WebSTAR V plug-in is on the way — and enables FileMaker Pro 7 users to build database-driven Web clients. It includes such technology as Server-Side Rendering and Saved Actions and offers support for all of the new features found in FileMaker Pro 7, including relational and portal fields. iApp Server also supports HTML template files as a native file format.
The software comes with iAdmin, a Web browser-based console for administrating iApp Server. It can define a Web server’s online databases, saved actions, users and groups, value lists and global variables. iApp Server is US$495, with support for five concurrent users.
