FL5 API Specifications

The interface specifications listed are to for use with the C-language.
For  C++ and Java corresponding classes (e.g. stream) are provided and for PLI, COBOL and HLAS the standard load modules without return values (which becomes the first parameter in the parameter list).
All parameters are call by reference, whereby an additional length field must be specified for each string parameter since using null-terminated strings is not a common practice with these languages.

FL5 SPI Specifications

Service Provider Interfaces (SPI) are interfaces that allow users to extend the functionality of FLAM themselves. This is used to implement specific connections, for example to cryptographic infrastructures, or to be able to perform pre- or post-processing for data or integrated anti virus scanning aso. The functions to be fulfilled are language independent and are dynamically loaded as DLL / SO or load module at runtime.

FLAM4 Manuals

The old FLAM4 manuals are no longer maintained after version 5.1.22, but can still be downloaded here in unchanged form. The old manuals have been replaced by the FLM4 Manual, the FLAM4 Record Interface Specification, the FKME User Manual and the platform specific 'install.txt'.

HowTos

The following simple linkages of FLAM4 into Java and other modern high-level languages is being replaced by the FLUC byte interface which is by far more powerful. The new byte interface is also available via network which allows, among other things, to read and write FLAMFILEs via an I/O stream from an Enterprise Environment (JavaEE). The following descriptions are provided for customers that prefer sticking on to FLAM4.
