I need to synchronize a local filemaker database with our mysql database elsewhere.
I'm not realy into filemaker but I know that it can output xml (is it possible to let FM output xml each hour? I don't need detailed information on this)

Probably what i want to do is let filemaker output some xml file(s) on our server,
then I want to extract the data to put them into mysql, this would be a php script running hourly by a cronjob.

now the best part (on wich I only need some advice for further research)
As I said, I need to synchronize it, so that means both ways.

I'm thinking about doing exactly the reverse, so let make a php script output xml hourly ba a cronjob and place it on the webserver.
Then FM have some sort of scheduled task to import the xml.

In short:
Is it possible to let FM output xml each hour?
Does anyone know about a great php class wich can do this conversion?
Does this php class support both ways, or is there another?
Can FM import on an hourly basis?
