DI API - Where to start

Hello there,

We are a SAP Business One 8.8 user. I have some background in development and databases. And i want to start getting into the DI API for development of external tools, for example adding sales orders thru the DI API with PHP or a program language.

But where do i start? Where can i find information? Learning and examples?

Thank you!

Best regards,

Henk - Kivits

    Henk - Kivits,

    Well to develop against SAP Business One you would need to purchase the SAP Business One SDK. The SDK has all of the Help documentation to get you started and there are samples in VB.Net and C# for the common things you can do with the SDK. If you are a customer, you should connect with you SAP Partner.

    There is also eLearning here on SDN for the SDK at this link ...

    Hope that helps,

      Thanks Eddy,

      We have the SDK Implementation license bundle with the professional user as mentioned in the elearning part. But this tells me i can only use the UI API. I have the SDK installed from the installation files and i have access to the sample files for csharp and

      But I understand from the elearing, that i need to have different license for use of the DI API?

      How much would that license approx. cost?

      Basically i want to build a set of small tools, either via vb or php, for example, a warehouse user can scan with a barcode scanner of a product, and it brings up a location code and the warehouse user is able to change the teh location code.

      And in the future i want to look at syncing a custom webshop or business to business portal.

      Any help is welcome!
