Dynamics CRM 2011 - Workflows

Early Bound Programming in Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Early-Bound: In early-bound programming type-checking and binding happens at compile time.

Early Bound Programming in Microsoft Dynamics CRM

In Microsoft Dynamic CRM, the code generation tool (CrmSvcUtil, available in SDK) generates strongly-typed classes for early-bound programming. These classes can be used in applications that use Microsoft Dynamics CRM as well as plug-ins and custom workflow activities.

Generated classes include all entities, attributes and relationships. 

Each time you make customizations to your system, you must regenerate these classes.  

Advantages of early-bound programming

  • All type references are checked at compile time.
  • Much faster development as compared to late-bound.
  • Intellisense support in Visual Studio.

Disadvantages of early-bound programming 

  • Early-bound classes needs to be regenerated, each time you customize your system.
  • Slightly slow performance as compared to late-bound.

Early-bound performance

Early-bound classes are wrapper to late-bound classes because of this serialization costs increases as these entities are converted to late bound types during transmission over the network.

This performance difference is extremely small and can be neglected.
