Q a starts now but first

Q & A starts now, but first…


Hybrid development

Hybrid Development

  • Historically, we used to promote Cross Dictionary Dexterity development as the leading edge of Microsoft Dynamics® GP development

  • Now, the way to go is Hybrid Development

  • Not just finding the best tool for the job, but finding the best tool for each part of the job

  • Even if it means using multiple tools for a solution


Dexterity

Dexterity

  • Developers’ tool

  • Same environment and language as the Microsoft Dynamics GP client is developed in

  • Can create seamless integrations

  • Can access tables and business logic (functions and procedures)

  • Can modify core Microsoft Dynamics windows only

  • Can develop cross-dictionary code


Visual studio tools

Visual Studio Tools

  • Developers’ tool

  • Allows .NET Developers to use C# or VB.NET to integrate with Microsoft Dynamics GP

  • Can create new forms with similar UI

  • Use Modifier to change existing forms

  • Can work from User Interface events

  • Can call most underlying business logic

  • Can access existing tables directly

  • Cannot work with existing reports


Modifier with vba

Modifier with VBA

  • Tool for Power Users, Partner Consultants, and sometimes Developers

  • Can automate the user interface

  • Can add additional business rules

  • Can modify windows in any product

  • Can reference system dialogs

  • Can work with reports

  • Limited access underlying business logic


Extender

Extender

  • Power Users’ or Partner Consultants’ Tool

  • Can add additional User Defined Fields to any window

  • Uses additional window

  • Cannot modify original window

  • From v10.0 SP4 onwards Extender can now create entire new forms

  • Uses complex data storage system


Compare and contrast tools

Compare and Contrast Tools

  • Use the best tool for the job

  • Different tools have different strengths and weaknesses

  • Don’t be afraid to use multiple tools

  • Hybrid solutions can achieve more

  • There is no wrong solution if it works
