Description

The Compile-NAVApplicationObject function compiles application objects in the specified database. A filter can be specified to select the application objects to be compiled. Unless the Recompile switch is used only uncompiled objects are compiled.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

Compile-NAVApplicationObject MyApp

Compiles all uncompiled application objects in the MyApp database.

EXAMPLE 2

Compile-NAVApplicationObject MyApp -Filter 'Type=Codeunit' -Recompile

Compiles all codeunits in the MyApp database.

EXAMPLE 3

'Page','Codeunit','Table','XMLport','Report','Query' | % { Compile-NAVApplicationObject -DatabaseName MyApp -Filter "Type=$_" -AsJob } | Receive-Job -Wait

Compiles all uncompiled Pages, Codeunits, Tables, XMLports, Reports and Queries in the MyApp database in parallel and wait until it is done. Note that some objects may remain uncompiled due to race conditions. Those remaining objects can be compiled in a seperate command.
