Hi Cheena,

The difference between a lightweight add-on and the standard add-on is the installation method.

The lightweight add-on will use the Extension Control Center to install the zip you mentioned.

The standard add-on uses a custom-built installer and is installed in the Add-on Administration facility of SAP Business One.

The easiest way that I know of to create a standard add-on installer is to use B1DE.

You can create one yourself by using other tools (WiX, InstallShield, etc...) but I'm not familiar with those.

Hi Pedro Magueija,

Thank you for your prompt replay.

i will check and update you.

I thought for creating standard add-on, we need to create User Defined Tables(UDT) or User Defined Fields(UDF), while run a add-on first time. I mean without create UDT and UDF's manually, by running add-on it self automatically creates.

It is my understanding, and please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks,

Chenna.

Hi Cheena,

It's not mandatory to create UDTs or UDFs in any type of add-on. One example is an add-on that only modifies screens.

Creating UDTs and UDFs can be done if you need it, and it can be done in standard or lightweight add-ons. Normally this is done the first time the add-on runs.

So, to recap, a lightweight add-on is essentially the same as a standard add-on, except for the installation method.
