E1: BSFN: Debugging Business Functions (C and NER) Using Supported Version of Visual Studio C++ For App Release 8.11 and Later (Doc ID 639903.1)

Last updated on MARCH 14, 2024

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools - Version 8.98 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In many instances, a developer might need to debug the business function code to troubleshoot some issues or to understand the logic. Starting with application release EnterpriseOne 8.11, Visual C++ version 6 is no longer supported. This document explains the steps required to debug a business function (BSFN) using later version of Visual C++


You should use supported version of Microsoft Visual C++ to debug business functions in EnterpriseOne, including C business functions, Named Event Rule (NER) business functions (by debugging the NER generated C code), and Table triggers (by debugging the NER generated C code). You can debug business functions attached to interactive applications or batch applications, but the business functions MUST be executed locally. If launching a UBE, this generally means running it on the local workstation.
