In this post, you will learn about 5 of the new development features in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. These new features will be available from the 2022 Release Wave 2 (BC21). Until the general availability in October 2022, you can test them on the preview release.
Business Central allows us to set or select the fields that will be initially loaded when the record is retrieved from its data source, improving the performance of objects such as OData pages and reports, and particularly beneficial when using table extensions in the application.
I’ve talked some days ago about some UI improvements in the Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 2 release (version 21). You can read the details here. There’s another quite hidden feature that I love a lot in this new release (not yet documented) and it’s related to the availability of a new construct for writing faster upgrade code.
In this blog post we attempt to write a simple micro-benchmark to test execution time of a trivial scenario. Throughout the post the benchmarking code will evolve as the common mistakes are presented, explained, and solved. Finally, a relatively good solution will be presented for public usage together with advice on how to run these benchmarks.
