What are the Advantages of Converting from SuiteScript 1.0 to SuiteScript 2.0?

  • Modularity: SuiteScript 2.0 is all based on asynchronous module definition (AMD) design, in which everything is modules instead of functions and the modules are called only when they are needed, tending to deliver a faster performance. The main problem with NetSuite SuiteScript 1.0 was everything will be loaded in the beginning itself thus reducing the performance. SuiteScript 2.0 is based on the standard object oriented programming and will have separate modules for everything.

  • Easier to understand the code: As it is following the standard javascript format, it is easier to understand by even the beginners in NetSuite. All the object elements used are defined explicitly. So it will be much easier to realize what elements are used in the code.

  • Increased efficiency and performance.

  • Easy upgrade to the new versions without any hassles.

  • nlapi calls are no longer needed for the testing purposes.

It’s no doubt that SuiteScript 2.0 is a really powerful tool in NetSuite with its added functionalities. At first, it may be difficult to follow up, but it is highly recommended to move to SuiteScript 2.0.
