Business Central: obsoleting WITH statement

Today, I have been checking some of my extensions for business central 17 compatibility. Majorly, I found that it is giving a warning for with statements. After that, I checked some blogs on the google and found that it is going to be obsolete soon in the newer version of business central.

obsoleting the WITH statement

With clause can help us to write a more readable source code for our customization. In fact, Microsoft is already using this with clause many times the we have seen in the Navision as well as in the business central.

We have to change our code for solving this problem as soon as possible. Many people are asking that it is just a warning why we need to take care today but my answer is always to change your code as earliest as possible for not creating mess at the deadline.

I hope you will understand the seriousness of handling With clause. After changing code when you compile source you will not get a warning for code AL0606.

Moreover, we can check this API in Postman as well. Here, we will mainly perform three operations GET, Post, and Delete.
