Microsoft announces Developer Preview for Dynamics GP 2015

| 08/29/2014 | 0 Comments

Microsoft is pleased to announce the availability of the developer preview for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 .  This partner only preview is available to any registered Microsoft Dynamics GP partner and can be downloaded from PartnerSource.  The preview itself is comprised of four parts that once downloaded can be extracted into a single virtual machine instance containing a fully functional installation of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Service Based Architecture (SBA).  Information on using the virtual machine can be found in the attached readme document (at bottom of article).   The preview is intended to promote the exploration and early adoption of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Service Based Architecture by partners and ISV developers and cannot be used for customer test or production environments.  The Service Based Architecture is a set of new component services as well as changes to the Dexterity IDE and runtime that enables the creation of REST based web service operations that leverage existing sanScript code based functionality.  The Dexterity IDE has also been significantly enhanced to interoperate with Microsoft’s .NET framework making it easier to use .NET classes and objects with in the sanScript language.  Users of the preview are encouraged to regularly check our blogs for updates and informational examples on this new architecture.   Part 1 File Name  Dynamics_GPServiceISVDrop_Aug132014Parts.part1.rar File Size  4193280 KB https://mbs2.microsoft.com/fileexchange/?fileID=56a379f7-b982-49cd-aff7-ccc72beace34    Part 2 File Name  Dynamics_GPServiceISVDrop_Aug132014Parts.part2.rar File Size  4193280 KB https://mbs2.microsoft.com/fileexchange/?fileID=0b147e80-0b5d-4087-ba30-3a90e2d95496   Part 3 File Name  Dynamics_GPServiceISVDrop_Aug132014Parts.part3.rar File Size  4193280 KB https://mbs2.microsoft.com/fileexchange/?fileID=e26be271-a258-434f-be22-4258b4ccb796   Part 4 File Name  Dynamics_GPServiceISVDrop_Aug132014Parts.part4.rar File Size  1084807 KB https://mbs2.microsoft.com/fileexchange/?fileID=3d5aa62c-48d7-4d4c-9e7e-07e47f95d2d5   Don’t forget to download the Readme document attached to the bottom of this article.
