Plugins and Workflow Activities        Chapter 1 

Plugins and workflow activities are compiled as assemblies and run in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC). Some of the most complex CRM development is found in the .NET code associated with these two types of components. With CRM 2011, JScript and REST services provide a great deal of additional functionality that was not readily available in previous versions, such as creating and updating data. However, for many process and business requirements, plugin and workflow activity assemblies are still required.

This chapter outlines how to develop, register, and debug both types of components and introduces key concepts to working with data available through the CRM SDK.
