NetSuite is pleased to announce the general availability of SuiteTalk (Web Services) Version 2012.2 for all NetSuite products.
New Records and Enhancements to Existing APIs
Numerous new records have been exposed in SuiteTalk Web Services, providing even more integration depth and breadth. Web Services APIs now include access and data management for item groups, item revision, item supply plan and single coupon code. Additionally, you can access the currency exchange rates table through SuiteTalk and import your exchange rates. A new operation called getCurrencyRate has been added to look up exchange rates as of an effective date.
With this release, linking of purchase orders to vendor bills is supported via SuiteTalk APIs. This improves integration with external purchasing systems and closes a long standing gap between the APIs and the backend NetSuite ERP function.
SuiteTalk and SuiteScript APIs now support paycheck journal and payroll item records. With the exposure of these records, customers and partners can integrate with an external payroll system. The paycheck journal transaction supports custom fields and form customization. This flexibility can help you meet a diverse set of tax and localization requirements when integrating NetSuite with a payroll solution provider.
PHP Toolkit Enhancements
NetSuite is offering a completely new and revamped PHP toolkit which brings the programming experience in PHP closer to Axis or .Net environments. Major IDEs such as Eclipse will be able to do auto-completion for records, field names, and operations and their arguments. This makes programming faster and less error prone. Finally, all SuiteTalk operations are supported in the new PHP toolkit. Using the new PHP toolkit requires a new style of programming in PHP. You may need to migrate your code to work in the new environment.
Please see the Release Notes for detailed descriptions of new features and changes. You can also visit the Developer Resources section of the Web site for a comprehensive overview of our SuiteTalk (Web services) APIs, the latest version of the WSDL, and updated developer documentation.
Updated sample applications are available for this release of SuiteTalk. You can download these from the Sample Applications section of the Web site.
Please note that although we will continue to support previous versions of Web Services for existing client software, we encourage you to use the latest version for any new development. We strongly recommend that you upgrade your client applications that were using the beta version of the 2012.2 WSDL to the generally available version of the API.
