About this book

Dynamics 365 Business Central is the new cloud-based SaaS ERP proposition from Microsoft. It’s not as simple as it used to be way back when it was called Navigator, Navision Financials, or Microsoft Business Solutions-Navision. Our development practices are becoming more formal, and with this, the call for test automation is pressing on us.

This book will teach you to leverage testing tools available with Dynamics 365 Business Central to perform automated testing. We’ll begin with a quick introduction to automated testing, followed by an overview of test automation in Dynamics 365 Business Central. Then you’ll learn to design and build automated tests and we’ll go through some efficient methods to get from requirements to application and testing code. Lastly, you’ll learn to incorporate your own and Microsoft tests into your daily development practice.

By the end of the book, you’ll be able to write your own automated tests for Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Necessary book for all BC developers.
I've read this book without any knowledge about automated testing and good knowledge of Business Central. It explained very well what automated testing is and how to start with it. I especially like concrete examples in Excel to define tests and AL code that comes with this book gives which helps a lot to start with automated testing. I believe everybody in business with Business Central would benefit from reading this book, no matter if they are beginner or experienced professional.
