Under the Hood: Data Migration : Douglas Wallis
The recently released FileMaker data migration tool is designed to migrate all record data and user accounts from a source FileMaker Pro Advanced file to a target file. One use for this command line tool is the copying of test or live data into a custom app between the different stages of the DTAP pattern (Development, Testing, Acceptance, and Production). This session is based on the one from Clay at the US DevCon.
