2- RESTFULL CRUDE OPERATION SAMPLE IN BUSINESS NAVIGATOR

 

Read / Retrieve

Business Navigator ERP API allows reading or retrieving the data with the help of following step.
This is how the page is rendered when a user opens Product Catalog Manager in a web browser. Only the search controls are visible. The panel with product properties is hidden.
If a user enters search criteria and clicks Find button then the matched products are displayed in the list box.
This is the implementation of the JavaScript method invoked when Find button is clicked and the compatible products are listed down.

Sample Code for Reading Web Service

showSupplierList: function () {
                var query = '?_sortExpression=Vendor_Name&_q=' + encodeURIComponent($('#QuickFind').val());
                $.ajax({
                        url: this.basePath() +'/BNSupplierAPI' + query,
                        cache: false,
                        dataType: 'jsonp',
                        success: function (data) {
                                var selectedValue = $('#SupplierList').val();
                                $.each(data.BNSupplierAPI, function (index, supplier) {
                                        $('<option>')
                                        .text(supplier.Sys_Number + ' / ' +
                                        supplier.Vendor_Name + ' / ' +
                                        supplier.DefaultCurrency + ' / ' +
                                        supplier.RecordType)
                                        .attr('value', supplier.Sys_Number)
                                        .appendTo($('#SupplierList'));
                                        });
                                $('#SupplierList').val(selectedValue);
                                $('#SupplierListPanel').show();
                            }
               });
}

 

Create / Write

Business Navigator ERP API allows writing the data with the help of following step.
If a product does not exist in the database than a user can click on New Product button to create a product.
A panel with blank product properties will be displayed. The value of the hidden field ProductID is set to a null value.

Sample Code for Create/Write Web Service

newSupplier: function () {
                        $('#SupplierSearchPanel').hide();
                        $('#DeleteButton').hide();
                        $('#SupplierDetailsPanel').show();
                        $('#Sys_Number').attr('value', null);
                        $('#Vendor_Name').attr('value', 'New Supplier').focus().select();
                        $('#DefaultCurrency').attr('value', null);
                        $('#RecordType').attr('value', null);
                },

If a user enters values and presses Save then an AJAX request will be sent to the web app with a URI configured to save a product.
The user will see a confirmation box displaying a new product ID if the operation was successful.
The code behind the Save button is presented next.

saveSupplier: function () {
                                if (!confirm('Save?')) return
                                var requestType = $('#Sys_Number').val() != '' ? 'PUT' : 'POST';
                                $.ajax({
                                        url: this.createSupplierUrl(requestType),
                                        dataType: 'jsonp',
                                        type: requestType,
                                        data: SupplierManager.collectFieldValues(),

                                        success: function (result) {

                                                if (result.errors)
                                                        alert(result.errors[0].message);
                                                else {
                                                        if (this.url.match('_type=POST'))
                                                            alert('New supplier Created');
                                                        SupplierManager.refreshSearch();
                                                    }
                                                }
                                        });
                                },

                        };

If the product ID is blank then the parameter “_type” is equal to POST, which instructs the application server to create a new product.

Sample Code for Reading Web Service

showSupplierList: function () {
                var query = '?_sortExpression=Vendor_Name&_q=' + encodeURIComponent($('#QuickFind').val());
                $.ajax({
                        url: this.basePath() +'/BNSupplierAPI' + query,
                        cache: false,
                        dataType: 'jsonp',
                        success: function (data) {
                                var selectedValue = $('#SupplierList').val();
                                $.each(data.BNSupplierAPI, function (index, supplier) {
                                        $('<option>')
                                        .text(supplier.Sys_Number + ' / ' +
                                        supplier.Vendor_Name + ' / ' +
                                        supplier.DefaultCurrency + ' / ' +
                                        supplier.RecordType)
                                        .attr('value', supplier.Sys_Number)
                                        .appendTo($('#SupplierList'));
                                        });
                                $('#SupplierList').val(selectedValue);
                                $('#SupplierListPanel').show();
                            }
                      });
                },

 

Update

Business Navigator ERP API allows update the data with the help of following step.
If a user selects a product in the list and clicks Show Details button then the product details are displayed.
The button will initiate a web request to obtain product information.

Sample Code for Update Web Service

showSupplierDetails: function (Sys_Number) {
                        if (Sys_Number == null) return;
                        $('#SupplierSearchPanel').hide();
                        $('#DeleteButton').show();
                        $.ajax({
                                url: this.basePath() + '/BNSupplierAPI/editForm1/' + Sys_Number,
                                cache: false,
                                dataType: 'jsonp',
                                success: function (supplier) {

                                        $('#SupplierDetailsPanel').show();
                                        $('#Sys_Number').attr('value', supplier.Sys_Number);
                                        $('#Vendor_Name').attr('value', supplier.Vendor_Name).focus();
                                        $('#DefaultCurrency').attr('value', supplier.DefaultCurrency);
                                        $('#RecordType').attr('value', supplier.RecordType);
                                    }
                  });
}

 

Delete

Business Navigator ERP API allows delete the data with the help of following step.
The “Delete” button is rendered next to “Save” on the product details panel. User has to click Find and select a product to activate the panel.
If the product deletion is confirmed then an AJAX request will be executed.
Product Catalog Manager will delete the selected product with the following code.

Sample Code for Delete Web Service

deleteSupplier: function () {
                        if (!confirm('Delete?')) return;
                        $.ajax({
                        url: this.createSupplierUrl('DELETE'),
                        dataType: 'jsonp',
                        type: 'DELETE',
                        data: SupplierManager.collectFieldValues(),
                        success: function (result) {
                                if (result.errors)
                                        alert(result.errors[0].message);
                                else
                                        SupplierManager.refreshSearch();
                        }
             });
}

The code will execute a JSONP request with DELETE specified in the product URI as a value of parameter “_type”.
