As far as I understand, Flavio, FileMaker is just as compatible with
C, Java and Visual Basic as Oracle, Access or other DB is competitive and close to equal to most
well-known database software programs...the only thing that is
different is that I understand that FileMaker can handle 100 Thousand
transactions in a day, so for some big airline companies and other
very large companies that have more than 100 thousand transactions in
a day... they might not be able to use FileMaker...but it does handle
100 thousand transactions, so there are medium-sized companies that
use FileMaker as their only database program - especially the
pharmaceutical industry...medications' information etc...

So no problem with C, Java or Visual Basic! It is used in conjunction
with FileMaker all the time -
