Karsten Johnson from the Microsoft Dynamics GP support and services team has published a fantastic blog article all about Installing and Troubleshooting Microsoft Dynamics GP Service Based Architecture (SBA).
Winthrop Development Consultants’ product Batch Posting Service Toolkit (BPST) allows posting as well as retrieving, creating, editing and deleting of transaction batches with REST based web service calls using Service Base Architecture.
Last week, I mentioned an issue with running code in Service Mode which was related to Visual Studio Tools code failing to run. I have also seen other issues where Dexterity code fails to run, both in my products and also with other developers that I am providing consulting services to.
If you ask Microsoft for help, they will probably tell you to test in Desktop mode by either creating a test window or by hi-jacking a button with a trigger script to call your service procedure. The big problem is when the code works perfectly every time in Desktop mode and fails every time in Service mode.
I recently had issues with one of my products and need to share the cause of the issue and the solution with the Microsoft Dynamics GP development community.
I made changes to all my products late last year, introducing a new registration system. The code uses Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP addin DLLs written in Visual C# to handle all the communication with the appropriate registration server.
Hey Developers… Are you attending the GPUG Summit 2017 conference in Nashville, Tennessee in October? If so, this article is to let you know about Microsoft Dynamics GP related Developer content at the conference.
I asked why there was not much content for developers at GPUG Summit and I was told that there are not many developers in attendance. I disagreed and requested a session for Developers, which Bob McAdam promptly organised … thanks Bob. 🙂
I am pleased to announce that the next build of the Batch Posting Service Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP (BSPT) is now available for download.
The Batch Posting Service Toolkit provides service procedures to retrieve a list of Batch Numbers for a specified Batch Source and to post the batch for a specified Batch Source and Batch Number.
It is designed to be used to post newly integrated batches of transactions real time and can be called via Dexterity, Visual Studio Tools or as a Service Based Architecture (SBA) Web Service (for v14.0 or later).
Service Based Architecture (SBA) was released with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, it covers technologies to make Dynamics GP more accessible to external applications by allowing Dexterity global procedures to be exposed as Web Services. It also allows Dexterity code to directly access and use .Net objects via the .Net Interop.
SBA opens up an entire new world of development opportunities.
When an inventory batch was posted from the Microsoft Dynamics GP client it would post to the General Ledger, however, a similar batch posted via Web Services and Service Based Architecture it would fail to post to GL.
