Features

 


Easy to Integrate


  • Returns a PHP array. The result parser inside SimpleFMAdapter uses PHP5’s SimpleXML.

  • Can be used on it’s own or with any service class, such as ZendAmf, ZendRest, and ZendSoap.

     


CWP Debugger


  • Easily see the underlying API command formatted as a URL for easy troubleshooting

  • Use the convenient errorToEnglish function to interpret FMS error codes

     


Simplicity and Performance


SimpleFM is a single class with less than 700 lines of code. While SimpleFM was written with simplicity as the main guiding principle, it also perfoms well. We have informally benchmarked it, and obtained faster results for the same queries compared to the two most common CWP PHP alternatives.


System Requirements


SimpleFM, the examples and this documentation are tailored for PHP 5.3 and FileMaker Sever 12.


  • PHP 5.3+

  • FileMaker Server 12+
