NetSuite SuiteScript2.0 : Addressing All Coding-Worries

admin 1617 Views

NetSuite SuiteScript 2.0 is designed to enhance functionalities, customize page-behavior, schedule tasks and create custom work flows in a NetSuite ERP. The concept behind the development of this script can be understood with the listed terms:

SuiteScript 2.0 Script types and Entry Points

With this latest version, the struggle of designing the script triggering a specific event is ended and predefined script types are launched. They are uniquely designed to fulfill special purpose.
These script types have one or more entry points which behave as junctions in the system. These points take over the control from the system to handle NetSuite application and transfer it to relevant script types. And thus, the function within the script gets executed.

SuiteScript 2.0 Modules

SuiteScript 2.0 works with modules. The APIs are managed with a series of standard modules. The modules have intuitive names which clarify their functionalities. For example, to get NetSuite records, N/Record module will be called. These already defined modules can be accessed wherever they are required, with no consideration with where it is defined.
With these two modifications, NetSuite SuiteScript 2.0 enhances NetSuite customization capability. It has wide range of options to save time and get desired customization. It has the following advantages compared to previous version:

Complexity Management – Modular Architecture:

SuiteScript 2.0 has modular structure. Mostly advanced and popular SuiteApps require lengthy and complex script which have multiple lines of codes and files. 2.0 has adapted the concept of modular construct. Hence, scripting is done with using modules. All these modules are unique and independent in the script.
Encapsulation is also added for complexity management which recognizes distinct codes and restricts the global variables or method naming conflicts.This version lets you create custom modules and you can use them to organize your code.

Automatic Dependency Management:

Automatic dependencies manager controls the dependencies letting you focus on logic only. The custom modules or in-built modules must be loaded prior to script execution. The dependencies and their dependencies are automatically get loaded by module loader.
Thus, if any change is applied in one module then it won’t impact the whole script.

Modern Programming syntax and behavior:

To come up with straightforward syntax and consistent behavior following enhancements have been made in SuiteScript 2.0:

  • Third party JavaScript API Support
  • Usage of properties and enumerations
  • Updated sublist and column indexing
  • Removal of nlapi and nlobj namespaces

The above-mentioned modifications keep the syntax clear with no prefixes or suffixes and the programming method remains same throughout.

Asynchronous Client-Side Processing (Promises):

Dealing with an asynchronous process, java script objects, known as promises are created. These objects are assumed as placeholders for the future result (success or failure) of an operation. While promise object stays back, the remaining segments of the script can be executed.
In SuiteScript 2.0,promises objects are supported by all clients.With the help of promises, developers write intuitive and efficient asynchronous code. There are inbuilt APIs for selected modules in SuiteScript.
With the tangible updates in NetSuite SuiteScript 2.0, Customization of the NetSuite ERP, as per client’s requirements has become easier and result-oriented. Get ERP customization services from NetSuite Expert, a certified NetSuite service provider.
