AL: Dependencies to System and Base Application

Another draft post that I forgot to publish. 

From version 15 onwards, Microsoft decided to split the entire application into 2 apps. 

  1. System Application
  2. Base Application

From going forward if you are developing an app on top of the Business Central, it must have a dependency on System Application and Base Application. 

This does not mean you can completely get away from specifying the “application” and “platform” versions in the app.json file. You still have to keep the “platform” version in the app.json. 


Please provide your feedback with a comment.
