Developer Workstation Installation


This document is a guideline for installing Sana Commerce - NAV Connector or Sana Commerce - SQL Provider (standalone). It covers the installation of Sana Commerce on a developer workstation. The installation steps marked with NAV Connector should only be performed when using the NAV connector and can be skipped when the Sana Commerce - SQL Provider will be used.
The objective of the workstation installation is to have a running SC web application, which is real-time attached to a Microsoft Dynamics NAV administration. From there on, you have the opportunity to develop, integrate, extend and deploy SC solutions. 
Since Sana Commerce is a source code based framework, built on the .NET framework, it requires a certain technical level to be able to accomplish the installation. Knowledge of the following technologies is required to succeed: 
  • Visual Studio 2008 (development installation only);
  • .NET Framework 3.5 SP1;
  • Internet Information Server (v5), Internet Information Services (v6,7);
  • Windows (XP, Server 2003);
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005;
  • MS Dynamics NAV (depends on the NAV version you will be using; NAV Connector only);
  • Application Server for Microsoft Dynamics NAV (NAS) (depends on the NAV version you will be using; NAV Connector only);
  • MS Dynamics NAV 2009 Server and Web Services (in case of using NAV 2009; NAV Connector only).
There are a few prerequisites that should be in place before you can install, configure and begin developing on Sana Commerce. These requirements are described later in this document. 
As stated before, this document is a guideline for installing Sana Commerce. Please note that additional steps may be required to meet your companies' development process / Quality Assurance (QA) requirements (Read the 'Additional steps' chapter for more information about this).
