Before we discuss about fine-tuning the performance of the database for Dynamics NAV, it is important to discuss some key features of the Dynamics NAV application that comprise the core architecture of the application, and the majority of performance issues could be attributed to improper use or misuse of these features.
In this article, by Sharan Oberoi & Amit Sachdev, authors of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Administration, we will cover:
- Using indexes/keys in Dynamics NAV
- Investigating the performance of the database
- Updating statistics
Oracle WebCenter Suite is the industry's most comprehensive enterprise portal platform designed for business users, unified with business applications, Enterprise 2.0 services, and social communities. It incorporates Web 2.0 content, collaboration, and communication services. However, without proper guidance on developing performance-critical enterprise applications, it is easy to make the wrong design and technology decisions.
In this article by Ashok Aggarwal, author of Web 2.0 Solutions with Oracle WebCenter 11g, we will do the following:
- Walk you through creating a custom WebCenter application that leverages the Discussions Service
- Present a handful of task flows
- Show you where to find key pieces of information required to configure your Discussions Service connection in your custom application
- Learn how to integrate a custom WebCenter application with the Wiki and Blog Services, specifically, using an IFrame and using the Web Clipping Portlet
If you’re running the web version of the Notes e-mail system known as iNotes, you can easily have Sametime up and running just by signing on to your e-mail file via a web browser. And, if you’re used to running the embedded version of Sametime in the Notes client, you’ll hardly be able to tell the difference.
In this article, by Marie L. Scott & Thomas Duff, authors of IBM Lotus Sametime 8 Essentials you’ll learn how to:
- Set the Sametime preference in iNotes.
- Log into Sametime from iNotes.
- Chat with others using Sametime from iNotes
- Display the Sametime contacts in the iNotes sidebar.
- Add new contacts to Sametime in iNotes.
- Set and change your availability status in Sametime for iNotes.
- Launch the Help files for Sametime in iNotes.
A portlet is a component of software that can be part of a page. In consequence, a page can be enriched by many portlets allowing us to grab the contents of various sources of data. This article by Plinio Arbizu, author of Web 2.0 Solutions with Oracle WebCenter 11g, will help us to understand the concept associated with this technology and how it can apply to our projects with Oracle WebCenter.
During this article, you will learn the following:
- JSF specification concepts
- The types of portlets you can build with WebCenter
- Developing a portlet using ADF
- Integrating portlets with custom Applications
For most people who work in IT, the idea of cloud migration is a bit concerning. One of the biggest issues is that the field of cloud computing is still so new that there is actually scant data on proper procedures and techniques in order to perform a so-called “cloud cutover”. In order to convert information over to a cloud environment, you’ve got to have your ducks in a row. This article by Daniel Cawrey is an outline of what you need to do when preparing to migrate to a cloud environment.Read A Guide for Migrating Data to the Cloud in full
In the previous article, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Development Tools, we gained an overall view of NAV as an application software system.
The goal of this article by David Studebaker, author of Programming Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, is to learn about many of the debugging tools and techniques available to the NAV developer. As it has been pointed out, "Without programmers, there are no bugs." As we are all developers and therefore a primary source of bugs, we need to be knowledgeable about the tools we can use to stamp out those bugs. Fortunately, NAV has a good arsenal of such tools.Read Code Analysis and Debugging Tools in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 in full
The key goal of this article by David Studebaker, author of Programming Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, is to gain an overall view of NAV as an application software system. We're not going to study its functional operation, but gain a basic understanding of the process flow of the system. We also want to have a good understanding of the structural "style" of the software, so that our enhancements are designed for a better fit.Read Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Development Tools in full
The adoption of Business Process Management (BPM) is increasingly becoming one of the most popular approaches for boosting overall organizational excellence. Built on Oracle's SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) Suite infrastructure, BPM Suite 11g provides enhanced support for application integration services and business events, Web 2.0 and E2.0 style collaborations, and high scalability. It is a full-featured, enterprise-grade BPMS that has sufficient easy-to-use features to make it also suitable for small departmental quick-win projects.
This article by Heidi Buelow, Manoj Das, Manas Deb, Prasen Palvankar and Meera Srinivasan, authors of the book Getting Started with Oracle BPM Suite 11gR1, provides a brief overview of Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) concepts with particular emphasis on the BPMN 2.0 additions. In addition, it describes the steps involved in modeling the Sales Quote Process.Read BPMN 2.0 Concepts and The Sales Quote Process in full
Debatching data is the process of turning one huge pile of data into many small piles of data. There are multiple tools for debatching large bulk data loads including BizTalk Server and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). One can use such tools to break up large batches of data, manipulate it as needed, and send it on to its next reincarnation (for example, into an API, a relational database, or a text file). In this article by Mike Sexton, co-author of Applied Architecture Patterns on the Microsoft Platform, we will take a look at options for processing large data sets and explain how to take giant sets of data and insert them into databases for analysis.Read Debatching Bulk Data on Microsoft Platform in full
Parallel programming is becoming one of the hottest topics in software today as multi-core CPUs decrease in price and increase in power. Parallelism in programs allows multiple processes to be executed concurrently using separate threads and processing units. This is appealing to developers and users alike, because it can help reduce runtimes while still producing the same results as if it were run in serial. This article by Daniel Bolella gives us an overview to Parallel Programming and CUDA and is accompanied with a sample code to present the concept.Read Introduction to Parallel Programming and CUDA with Sample Code in full
