What’s New in SDK 2007 A?

Improved Performance for Multiple Add-Ons

When running several DI add-ons, performance may degrade because each additional connection to the DI API loads a new DI and ObServer DLLs. You can improve performance using a new connection interface. All DI API add-ons using this interface will share the same DI API and OBServer DLLs, thus reducing memory consumption. The new connection is recommended when running multiple DI add-ons connected to the same Company database.

  • I know many of these objects were expected, but how about UDO’s exposure in the DI API? Is there a chance that we can get that before B1 is in GA? UDO’s are great when working with SBO application, but it’s very frustrating not to do a lot of things that should be done quite easily.
    • Hi Ian,
      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately, this is not planned for 2007 A release.
      I can say, that it’s planed for 2008 release (no commitment of course…)
  • Has there been taken any meassures to improve the performance of SAP Business One in general.

    Both when it comes to the user interface (slow opening forms, changing from one cell to another, comboboxes opening slowly etc.) but also towards the data interface.

    Ie. when opening or adding large documents it can sometimes take minutes even on very fast servers – as well as this locks other users from adding / updating documents.

  • Support for Printing SAP Reports directly from our add-on would be great.

    Something like
    oCompany.PrintReport(“ReportName”, QueryString);

    Actualy we have to REDO every reports in Crystal Report or do it manually in .NET

  • It would be nice to be in Visual Studio 2005 and like any other helps, press F1 on a word from SAP SDK would bring us directly to the help for this word

    I have to click an Icon I placed on my desktop
    to go in SDK help.

    Maybe there’s a trick I dont know yet to make it works.  Sorry if this is the case.
