  • Mark Brummel: Enum != SchemaChange

    I love a nerdy title and I love learning about cool new smart stuff. But before you continue reading I want to say thanks to my colleagues at ForNAV, especially Michael Nielsen. Without him pushing me (again) to step out of my comfort zone this would not have been possible. Yesterday I visited the Microsoft office in Lyngby for the first time in a very, very long time to talk about our project to split up the…

  • Waldo's Blog : Why and how to rename all AL-files of your app with the “CRS AL Language Extension”

    First of all, this is my first post of this new year, so I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best and happiness for 2020! Last year, I did a post on my new hobby “3D Printing” .

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central and the "mistery" of Library Apps

    More than an year ago I wrote this article for Simplanova website mentioning some “architectural choices” when moving a C/AL solution to the extension model. One of the ideas mentioned here was to create an “hidden layer” that can contain common business logic and objects and then create N separated extensions on top of this layer. This permits you to “share” common logic between extensions and to reduce dependencies…

  • Stefano Demiliani's NAV Blog: Dynamics 365 Business Central: again about obsoleting fields

    More than an year ago I’ve written this post explaining how to handle breaking schema changes on a production Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS tenant . I think that every Dynamics 365 Business Central developer now knows that in a production environment you cannot remove objects or fields (breaking schema in the database) but all schema changes must always be additive. Despite this, I see lots of developers that…

  • Vjeko.com: Control Add-ins Supercharged: Development and production build tasks

    I’ve been absent for a while – sometimes it’s difficult to find time for blogging even when I want it. Anyway… here’s the last post in the introductory series of posts that explain my NAV TechDays 2019 demos. In this code example, I explain the difference between typical development and production build configurations, and I show how to configure gulp accordingly. To check the code example, and to read the detailed…

  • Mark Brummel: How To, Part I | Breaking a Monolyth

    I often wonder how I find myself in situations like this. On my day off I find myself behind my desk doing something which is not my responsibility, nor am I getting paid to do it. If you say A, you also have to be willing to say B and C. This is what my parents told me when I was young so when I promissed Bugsy and Jesper to look into making the Business Central Base Application smaller I decided I may as well…
