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.

Applying Design Patterns

Most of these tables now only have an ID, Name, and Primary Key. We need to give them functional elements by adding Design Patterns.

The UML schemas for these Patterns can be found in Chapter 2, Architectural Patterns and Chapter 3, Design Patterns.

The Bed and Breakfast setup

In this example application, we need the Setup table to store the Number Series for the Stay table. Other than these, we don't have fields to add anything to this table.

Here's how I usually put table definitions in design documents:

Field No

Field Name




Primary Key


This is the Primary Key for this table


Stay Nos.
