The power of Variants

This blogpost of Arend Jan Kauffman reminded me of a topic that I wanted to write a very long time now. Namely working with Variants. Sometimes I get the remark: “what the hell are they useful for? “. And to be honest: Variants could be bloody useful in some cases. Cases to make stuff even …

NAV 2013: Implementing the Application Test Toolset

As you probably know, since NAV 2009, there is some kind of framework built in the C/SIDE environment that can deal with application testing.  Usually referred to as “Testing Framework” or “Test codeunits” or “Test Toolset” or “probably-some-kind-of-other-description-I-don’t-think-of-at-this-moment-but-deals-with-testing-the-functionality-of-your-(customized)-NAV-solution”.

Deny object changes in SQL Server

Internally at iFacto, we have been working quite heavily on our infrastructure. And if I say "heavily" .. I mean unbefreakinglievable heavily. In a way: we threw everything out .. and we placed a lot in. But we only did this after going very deep in pre-defining about everything we could predefine: user security, SQL …

NAV Change Listener is not always listening..

Since NAV 2009 RTC, live has become .. let’s say .. more challenging regarding “installations”, isn’t it ;-).
