FmPro Migrator Developer Edition 4.86 With FmPro
To Servoy Migration Feature.
The FmPro to Servoy Migration Service incorporated into FmPro Migrator Developer Edition application provides a fixed-price conversion service for FileMaker Pro database files into Servoy Eclipse projects. This service includes the conversion of layouts, scripts, relationships, and value lists within a predefined budget. This service leverages the automated layout and relationship importing features of FmPro Migrator Developer Edition, along with FileMaker Pro Advanced.
Features of the FmPro To Servoy Migration Service include:
Save Time, Get Up and Running Quickly - It can be a tedious and time consuming process to manually re-create each FileMaker Pro layout object into any other development environment. Rather than spending days or even weeks of valuable time manually converting hundreds of layouts, Servoy developers can utilize the FmPro to Servoy Migration Service as an economical alternative. FmPro Migrator Developer Edition typically processes each layout within less than 1 second - much faster than you could perform the task manually!
The ability to efficiently perform FileMaker Pro to Servoy migrations makes it possible to quickly show prototypes to prospective customers. An automated migration process represents the ultimate in rapid application development, which can't be matched by any other development environment. Being able to show customers a rapid prototype may make the difference in getting approval for a new client project.
Relationship Conversion - FileMaker Pro relationships imported by FmPro Migrator are converted into Servoy Eclipse relationships.
Global Fields - Global fields within FileMaker
Pro tables are converted into Servoy Eclipse Global variables within
the globals.js file.
Custom Value Lists - Custom Value Lists are read from the FileMaker Pro DDR XML file and then added to the Servoy Eclipse ValueLists.
Layout Image Migration - Embedded layout graphic images are saved into the medias folder within the Servoy project and are also placed onto the Servoy Eclipse form. Only unique copies of images are stored within the medias folder, in order to prevent wasting space due to duplicate images. This means that if an image such as a company logo is used on 100 different layouts, only one single copy of that graphic will be saved, as all of the remaining 99 copies are duplicates of the original image.
FileMaker Pro stores GIF, PNG and JPEG images in their native formats within the layout. All other image types are also converted and stored in the JPEG file format in order to guarantee compatibility with Instant Web Publishing. Therefore the conversion process follows this same compatibility implementation by extracting GIF, PNG and JPEG images for use on the Servoy Eclipse form.
Demo Mode - Due to the complexity associated with any database migration project, it is recommended that a small test project be completed prior to starting the full conversion project. By default, FmPro Migrator Developer Edition processes FmPro to Servoy migrations in demo mode without a license key. In Demo mode, FmPro Migrator Developer Edition will process 5 layouts and 5 scripts.
Using the demo mode at no charge, enables Servoy developers to become familiar with the conversion process and see the completed layouts in the Servoy Eclipse project.
