Posting Dynamics SL API examples to GitHub

We are now posting our Catalina API for Dynamics SL sample client code to GitHub(under a MIT license.  Which means that you can use the sample client code for your own purposes).

I am posting the SOAP based sample clients here:

I just put up one for customer maintenance.  I will be posting more throughout the week (as I get them ready for consumption).  If you have any questions, feel free to Contact us.  Also, if you are a current Catalina API for Dynamics SL user and have any sample code that you would like to share with others, feel free to forward and we will see if we can get it out there for you.

List of SL Web Services in CTAPI

We have been busy creating Web Services (API calls) that can simulate many of the popular screens and modules in Dynamics SL.  This makes it easier for programmers to communicate with the SL users to determine what integration points are needed.  This is also a great way to see how a user would normally use an SL screen manually.  That process can then be used a use case for the integration.

Below is a list (ever growing list) of the main screens that we have created an API equivalent to, to allow programmers, ETL (export/transform/load type software like scribe, cast iron, etc.), and apps to integrate to Dynamics SL.

If you don’t see something here, feel free to contact [email protected] and we can always see about adding it. Continue Reading

This post is focused on how to create a web reference in Visual Studio to consume our SOAP based web services.  This is pretty simple and we will build on it in posts to come.
