Learning Dynamics NAV Patterns

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.

Thank you for buying Learning Dynamics NAV Patterns


In this chapter, we have learned what Architectural Patterns are, and how to implement them in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. We have covered nine patterns that cover more than 95 percent of the tables that are defined with the standard application.

Using Architectural Patterns helps us to define tables when building our applications that others will recognize. This creates a common syntax within the community, and reduces the learning curve when bringing in new developers and architects.

In the next chapter, we will implement Design Patterns that will add elements to Architectural Patterns that define the usability of the application.
