Does anyone remember FileMaker Pro? Like freedom, it was both wonderful and horrible at the same time... but one of the things that made it wonderful was the idea that you could use it to create a database on your computer and share it with other computers running FMP on the same network. It could be a list of employee phone numbers or the latest pricing from distribution... you could simply turn on sharing and others could connect to your data. Likewise, you could look out on the network and connect to any FMP database that was being shared.
I'm pretty sure that I know the answer to this question but basically, I would like to know if it's possible to run a RESTful API to serve a database using the Desktop version of Xojo. Ideally, I'd like to bake the server right into the same app that acts as the client.
Seeing that I can't seem to fine HandleSpecialURL anywhere in Desktop, I have a feeling that the answer is to create two apps, a Web app to be the REST server and a Desktop app to be the client.
