Coding4Performance 4: Task Scheduler

In my last post about Start Session I explained how you can easily run a Codeunit in background and relieve the user session. The downside on this method is, that your background task still runs on the same server instance like the user session does. If you have only a few users and only oneContinue reading “Coding4Performance 4: Task Scheduler”

Coding4Performance 3: Start Session

As promised, here the first (and easiest) way to run code in background. This blog will be a bit shorter, as Start session is quite straight forward. Note: If you did not read the previous blog about Background tasks in general, maybe you should start there 😉 I created an example scenario for which aContinue reading “Coding4Performance 3: Start Session”

Coding4Performance 2: Asynchronous development and background tasks

In this post I will explain the general concept of asynchronous development and background tasks. So everyone knows how procedural development works. In Business Central it starts with a user which logs in to the web client and starts a user session. The first page which opens is most likely the role center page. BehindContinue reading “Coding4Performance 2: Asynchronous development and background tasks”

Coding4Perfomance 1: Text Builder

As NAV and Business Central evolves user tasks become more complex and BC becomes more powerful to solve this tasks. But this happens often with cost in performance. Even Microsoft published a (very good) article about how to improve performance in BC. I do mainly concentrate on the developer aspect of this article and inContinue reading “Coding4Perfomance 1: Text Builder”

How to: Fix problems with Docker DNS resolution

Recently I discovered that my BC instance within a Docker container somehow can not access the internet. After some time I figured that the problem was the DNS resolution and I thought I might share two possible ways to resolve this problem with you! How to check if you have the same problem You canContinue reading “How to: Fix problems with Docker DNS resolution”
