C/FRONT: This is an application programming interface that allows you to develop applications in other programming languages to access a Microsoft NAV database, either the C/SIDE Database Server or the Microsoft SQL Server.
The primary component of C/FRONT is a library of callable C functions, which provide access to every aspect of data storage and maintenance. This allows creation of custom components written in C, C++, VB, Delphi, and the Visual Studio.NET languages as well as other languages that support compatible calling conventions. C/FRONT is only tested by Microsoft for use with code built using either the Watcom C or Microsoft C++ compilers. C/AL triggers cannot be invoked via C/FRONT code.
C/FRONT comes as a set of files to be installed guided by the instructions given in the C/FRONT manual.
