Microsoft Great Plains Dexterity Customization Projects overview

By: Andrew Karasev

Other tools are eConnect, SQL stored procedures, VBA/Modifier, Integration Manager with VBA scripting and data translation.? In this small article we review Microsoft Dexterity:

  • Modification Capability.? Dexterity can modify virtually everything in GP.? It by its architecture seamlessly fits into GP security model.? Dex exposes to developer all GP forms and windows, allows to alter GP logic by placing triggers, which will run prior or after original object logic.? In Dexterity you can manipulate such external custom applications as COM object – this will open web services World to dex developer
  • OOP.? As Dexterity was designed in earlier 1990th – it is not Object Oriented in modern sense of its concept.? It may mean that Dex development will take longer and will require good QA
  • Customization Upgrade.? If you have DYNAMICS.DIC file with your historical customization, then we can upgrade your custom logic to newer GP version
  • Customization Revision.? When we do upgrade of your dex legacy customization, we typically advise you to deploy new tools and move portion of old dex custom logic to such technologies as SQL scripting and eConnect
