MDGP 2015 Feature of the Day: .NET Interop

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series of posts on the new features of, the soon to be released, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015. As I have done for the last two releases, I intend to shadow these posts and add my own opinions on these new feature; the series index is here.

The tenth Feature of the Day is .NET Interop. The new Service Based Architecture enables Microsoft Dynamics GP and ISV products to expose and consume services. Services are the backbone of the cloud and this feature supports new and exciting scenarios around cloud based interaction.

Developers can now directly reference .NET assemblies and their objects in sanScript in order to leverage capability offered in the .NET Framework. This includes the ability to call out to services or use objects as a means of data handling and processing.

Script Editor.NET objects can be instantiated, have their properties set or methods called within sanScript

The roles targeted by this feature are:

  • Developers
  • ISVs

You may also choose a scale out deployment across multiple servers, using a single tenant or multitenant configuration.

The installation of the Service Based Architecture server components is included in the same installation as the web client so you can easily deploy both components at the same time.
