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.

Building blocks

We borrowed the term classes from object-oriented programming as a collection of things that belong together. Classes can be Tables or Codeunits in Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

The first step in our process is to define the classes. These will be created as Tables or Codeunits, following the Patterns that we have learned:


This is a generic set of parameters for the application


This is a person who stays at our B & B. This can be one person, two persons, or a group (family)


Our B & B has a number of rooms with different attributes that determine the price, together with the season


This is the time of the year


This is the price for one night in a room...
