By: Marije Brummel

Overview of this book

Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a complete ERP system, which also contains a robust set of development tools to support customization and enhancement. These include an object designer for each of the seven application object types, a business application-oriented programming language with .NET interface capability, a compiler, a debugger, and programming testing language support. Learning Dynamics NAV Patterns will guide you through the NAV way of solving problems. This book will first introduce you to patterns and the software architecture of the NAV and then help you to build an example application. Then, it walks you through the details of architectural patterns, design patterns, and implementation patterns. This book will also talk about anti-patterns and handling legacy code. Finally, it teaches you to build solutions using patterns. Proven patterns and best practices will help you create better solutions that are easy to maintain in larger teams across several locations. It will guide you through combining abstract patterns using easy-to-understand examples and will help you decide which patterns to use in which scenarios.

Architectural Patterns

Architectural Patterns are the larger building blocks of your application. They define how the data is stored in the database.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV uses the SQL Server as a database platform. Within the SQL Server, there are a large number of ways to store data. This chapter will discuss a number of ways that are best practice, which will be recognized by the experienced developers.

The members of the Architectural Patterns are the Design Patterns that typically contain field elements and pieces of business logic. Other parts of the business logic are provided by the internal API's generic containers with reusable functions.

All the patterns are described with an abstract, technical description, and with a few examples of the functional usages in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV application.

In this chapter, we will cover:

  • Singleton
  • Supplemental & Subsidiary
  • Compound
  • Rules
  • Master Data
  • Journal Template-Batch-Line
