experience of designing Microsoft Dynamics NAV implementations over . Did you know that Packt offers eBook versions of every book published, with PDF and . The Microsoft Dynamics NAV product CD to install the application. This book is a focused tutorial on Microsoft Dynamics NAV application development to help you develop complete applications and not just application outlines. Designing a Dynamics NAV application usually includes the Creating table objects in Dynamics NAV to implement the design of your.
After reading this book, I hope that you have some fresh ideas, or maybe even recognition that you're already doing a lot of these things in the correct way. Dive into the history and learn some characteristics that are specific to our product, which makes our Patterns unique. Chapter 2, Architectural Patterns, will discuss various ways of designing the tables that are used in the product and have proven to be successful.
You will find that up to 99 percent of all the tables can be easily categorized. By following these Patterns, your software will be recognized and proven to be working. Chapter 3, Design Patterns, will discuss some of the most popular and well-known software elements that you can reuse to solve problems, in other words, Design Patterns! Chapter 4, Building an Example Application using Patterns, will show you what happens if we combine the Patterns from Chapter 2, Architectural Patterns, and Chapter 3, Design Patterns, together in a solution.
Chapter 5, Coding Best Practices, will explain that in Microsoft Dynamics NAV we can write code almost anywhere, but should we do this just because we can?
Let's learn how to structure our code. We will steal some ideas from object-oriented programming while we're at it. Chapter 6, Anti-patterns and Handling Legacy Code, will show you how you can migrate the existing legacy code into more structured software.
We will touch base on refactoring and clean code.
We will learn how to divide processes into classes, and select which Patterns to apply. At the end of this chapter, we will write test code and upgrade our software to a new version. In this article. Understanding the problem. Designing the data model tables, fields, relationships, and constraints. Designing the application. Understanding the Problem First, you must understand the business problem that you want your application to solve.
Designing the Data Model After you understand the problem that you want your application to solve, you must design the structure of the database for your application.
For more information about how to design the data model, see the following topics: You must consider how to define and enforce the following: Unique values in identifier columns of a table. Valid data types in each field of a table.
Consistency across tables. Other constraints that are specific to your application. For more information about data integrity, see the following topics: A: Yes, the reports can coexist, and the experience will be nearly the same for the end-user. Q: Can you have code on sections?
Q: Does the report output support color? Q: Can you have multiple Report Layouts for one report that could be used in MultiTenant installations? A: We plan to support that in a future version.
The license file also needs to be installed. A: Nothing when you want to run the reports. The client DLL is automatically deployed from the server to the client in , you have to deploy it using the installer. Also, when you create reports in PDF, Excel, or Word format, you need to have access to a program for the specific file type on the client computer.
The installer supports a developer mode, which installs all the required components. Q: If you download a perpetual license, is upgrade mandatory the first year?
Q: What happens if you discontinue your upgrade? Q: Are upgrades included in a subscription license? Q: Any plans on regional prices? We also have a USD price list for customer located in Asia.
A: Not for running the reports.
If you want to do conversion or use the advanced features of the Designer, you need access to Application Builder or Solution Developer. Q: We have several companies in one database.
Do we need one ForNAV license for each? Q: We have several companies in several databases. How many ForNAV licenses do we need?
