After the successes of the All Saints College teams at the RoboCup Junior Australia 2014 WA State Championships , it went without saying that we would take our best teams to the National Competition in Brisbane on the 27 th and 28 th September. We ended up taking our Senior Theatre (Pickle JAR Productions) and Senior Dance (The Inspector) teams as well as our top 2 Open Rescue (Sam and Me, Him & It) teams. Sadly neither of the CJs (Christopher Jack and Christopher John) were able to come due to other commitments

Debugging in the Dynamics GP 2015 Service Based Architecture

| 10/01/2014 | 0 Comments

As we move into the world of Service Based Architecture with Dynamics GP 2015, we wanted to highlight some debugging tools that will aid you as you create service procedures of your own.  Today you have various things available to you to debug integrations as they are created.  Among them are internal tools like the Dexterity script logs and the debugger or methods as simple as dropping the .set file on the runtime executable to ensure Dynamics still launches without error. There are numerous external tools at your fingertips as well such as SQL Profiler, Task Manager and Event Viewer.  While you will continue to find great value in these going forward when debugging things “inside” of the Dynamics GP environment we wanted to add tools for gathering information for all of the service events happening “outside” this environment and coming into the Dexterity Process.  While considering the options we knew we wanted to create debugging that was low impact on the process overall and incredibly performant. We wanted to not only provide you errors that were encountered within the service but also provide context to enable easier and quicker debugging.  Along with this we wanted to provide a sufficient level of logging by default to strike a balance between usefulness and performance.  To enable this we decided to utilize Event Tracing for Windows (ETW).
