NAV 2009, Part 2: For Web Services, "Sky Is the Limit"

In my first article previewing Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, I focused on its significant changes in the role tailored experience and in architecture. In this article, I examine the reality of using NAV 2009 via the Internet, and programming issues for developers. I also consider the issues associated with the upgrade decision.

Web Services

Imagine you could publish any codeunit that you have ever written as a webservice by just enabling one checkbox. Yes, it's going to be as easy as that! Posting routines, calculations, ... all Dynamics NAV business logic will be available on the web by just one button click. Personally, I'm most excited about this feature, because of our own integration products.

Web Service Create Contact: How To

I tried to create a contact using the contact card Web Service.
However, when invoking the Create() method I get an error like this:

Property 'Editable' for contact card is invalid.

Are there examples on how to create a contact?


This seems to be a dead forum

Hi all,

none of the questions have ever been answered.
Seems to be a pretty dead forum.

Does anyone know a forum where the NAV questions are being answered?

I still try to create a contact using a web sevice and I still keep getting error messages.

Maybe Web Services in NAV 2009 R2 is just a marketing joke by Microsoft.
