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 learned some best practices that will help us structure our code in such a way that others can read, maintain, and upgrade it. The methodologies in this chapter give you a range of options to choose from, and some for when to use what scenarios. When implemented, you will realise that upgrading will become easier, and the automatic merge routines in PowerShell will do a great job for you.

In the next chapter, we will focus on anti-patterns and handling legacy code. This will help you in the transition from traditional C/AL coding, to the methodologies and Patterns discussed in this book.
