New CRM Developer Tools: Advanced Developer Extensions

New Developer Tools: Advanced Developer Extensions

Fancy doing LINQ queries against Dynamics CRM4?  Want to have a super easy data driven programming experience? Well, guess what? That and much more is included in the latest SDK absolutely free; no need to pay a third party, just download and start playing with it (look for Advanced Developer Extensions)

Question that future cautious people will certainly ask: Will a similar experience be provided for CRM5 and beyond? A: You bet! You will love programming against our web services in CRM5, trust me.

    I hope CRM 5 will support all of the Linq operations that are available.  Many of the Linq operators won’t work in this implementation since they are not available through the CRM web services.  Also, the lack of impersonation in IFD authentication for these extensions make it unusable for a lot of us ISVs.  Otherwise, it’s a start in the right direction.

  2. John, when you mention IFD impersonation are you refering to the PrivUserGroup?

    Humberto, I’m referring to using the CrmImpersonator class that is needed in order to impersonate the current user from custom asp pages.
