Status Update

As you can probably tell, I haven't posted on Epicor for awhile as I have switched jobs, and no longer have access to an Epicor system.

I am currently working for Catapult ERP, acting as an application consultant for a product called Agreeement Express created by Recombo. Although promoted as Contract Management Software, its actually useful for all types of operations where documents need to be filled out and flow between people/departments.

If you have an insight or code you'd like to share regarding Epicor, but don't have a good home for it, please feel free to email me and I will post it here, crediting it to you.

Thanks for all the positive comments and feedback.

BL Tester Utility

I can't believe I didn't know about this before now. On the Epicor Server, in the folder Epicor905/Utility are the setup files for an application called BL Tester (presumably short for Business Logic Tester). The first time you run BL Tester, you will have to specify the Epicor server your are connecting to. Once it is installed, click File, Open, and choose the dll for the business object you want to test. Ie. Epicor.MFG.BO.SalesOrder.dll You can then use the application to specify the parameters and call any business object method. For instance, you could call SalesOrder.GetRows, and specify different where conditions. After clicking "Invoke" button, BL Tester will display the result of the method, usually a dataset, in a tree view control.
