Overview of this book

Implementing Microsoft Dynamics NAV in the real world often requires you to integrate the ERP with external applications or solve complex architectural tasks in order to have a final successful project. This book will show you how to extend a Microsoft Dynamics NAV installation to the enterprise world in a practical way. The book starts with an introduction to Microsoft Dynamics NAV architecture and then moves on to advanced topics related to implementing real-world solutions based on NAV and external applications. You will learn how an enterprise distributed architecture with NAV at the core can be implemented. Through a series of real-world cases on every topic and every industry (sales, retail, manufacturing, distribution, healthcare, and so on), you’ll see step by step how to efficiently solve a technical problem. These common problems encountered in a NAV implementation will be solved using the entire technology stack that Microsoft offers. By the end of the book, you will have the knowledge to efficiently solve certain scenarios, you will know which is the best solution architecture to propose to a customer and how to implement it.

Testing the application

We can now run our project with Visual Studio and set the startup parameters to test the application on sending an order to the Azure Service Bus queue and on retrieving the order from the queue and saving it on NAV.

If we start the console application with S as the startup parameter, a message is sent to our Service Bus queue. The body of this message contains the serialized order object.

If you go to the Azure Portal and check the Service Bus queue, you can see that now the QUEUE LENGTH is equal to 1:

If you send another message to the queue, the QUEUE LENGTH increases again by 1 and you can monitor the incoming message's arrival time:

If now you run the application by passing R as the startup parameter (to retrieve a message from the Service Bus queue), the application retrieves the first message to have arrived at the queue, extracts the body, and deserializes it:

The order is now saved on NAV for processing.
