AL Requirement: Prefix for Object Names and Field Names

Microsoft has updated the guidelines for AL development of extension V2. Caused on conflicts between multiple apps which have been installed on the same database it is required to use a Prefix (or Suffix) in all Object Names and Field Names.

That means for all who plan to provide their existing solution at the App Source they have to rename everything, at least after transforming into AL code. Most important thing before doing that is that you should  register your Prefix/Suffix.
