eConnect .net with 3rd party WennSoft

Hello fellow Dynamics Devs-

 

I've created a solution from .net c# that utilizes eConnect service to insert records for a screen, Payables Transaction Entry. Everything works fine. I'm trying to extend the functionality with a third party application Wennsoft. We use a modified form in the distribution subwindow now and I'm trying to include this functionality in my existing eConnect solution for GP. I have done some research and have come across Smart Connect, but what I'm trying to do is this in my .net solution. I've come across the pre post methods for Wennsoft, but I think besides calling this sproc to run the extended modified pre post methods, I need to use Smart Connect? I think besides this Smart Connect, Wennsoft or any other third party solutions just are not supported with eConnect? The only way I can think of inserting the third party fields, I would have to run the sprocs in my c# application? Which would ultimately just be a hack? We've already done one to support inter company transactions. Any insight or advice would be appreciated. I just don't think this is possible and eConnect is limited to just GP fields?

 

thank you

  • you don't need to write directly to the table in your C# app. You can create your own econnect procs to handle your data in the same econnect send as the standard GP data. It's documented in the Business logic extensions section of the econnect documentation. I do it all the time for the sole reason of a transaction roll back if any part of the transaction fails.

    Yes, I'm familiar with GP business logic extensions, but this is for a 3rd party window, how does the 3rd party pre post sprocs fire? I guess that's the part I'm missing.

    thanks

    I'm confused. If you know how it works, then what are you asking? Are you populating the econnect object with wennsoft data? Perhaps you can present your question better.
  • In reply to gkowieski:

    Do you even know how it works? From what I can tell, you cannot use eConnect with third party alternate forms like Wennsoft? Only GP? I think you're misunderstanding what I'm asking. For GP, you alter pre and post sprocs for custom business logic. You add a custom node, right? I'm just wondering if you can also do this with any keyword 3rd party non gp screens and business logic. Hope this clears things up.

    "Do you even know how it works? ". I really hope that wasn't meant in a condescending tone. :-)

    If someone has created econnect procs and you know the structure, (which if you don't, just look at the sql), then you can create your own .net object that matches the sql calls. Thus you can feed the sql procs for ANYBODY'S product through econnect. That's what the extensions were built for. Now, the problem is knowing how to populate their procs. Which proc is the lead proc, or which procs are a logical set. That's where the 3rd party person generally puts out an sdk for others to integrate with their application.

    So a simple yes would have been nice.

    thanks

    Don't come onto the boards asking for help and be all rude and crap. I tried to help by explaining. The documentation shows how all this is done.
  • In reply to gkowieski:

    Don't answer if you're not trying to help. Well to my posts.

    thanks
  • In reply to gkowieski:

    I wasn't asking how it's done, I was asking if it could be done with 3rd party windows, apps like Wennsoft. Yes or No answer, not you trying to tell me I don't know eConnect. I have made a custom solution already that works for GP Screens.
  • In reply to tm1000:

    dude... really? Nobody said anything about your skill set.
  • In reply to gkowieski:

    All you said was read the documentation. That wasn't help at all, why do you even respond when you're not helping?

    good bye. here's a cookie.
