Developing applications is now easier and faster in the new Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 than its earlier versions. .NET developers who are familiar with Visual Studio .NET will be comfortable with developing Dynamics AX applications although Dynamics AX has its own IDE which called MorphX and its own programming language with is X++.

This image shows the Dynamics AX AOT (Application Objects Tree), one of the MorphX IDE objects that Dynamics AX developers use to navigate through programming objects like Forms, Reports, and X++ Classes:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, you can view that AOT in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2012:

Proxies

Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 now creates proxies internally to support interacting with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 X++ classes, tables and base enums. By creating those proxies, developers will interact with Dynamics AX objects in C# and VB.NET exactly as if they are interacting with it in X++. After the proxy is created, that type is available as a strong type and features such as IntelliSense are available. For example, table fields and X++ methods are now exposed to be used in C# with one click. The created proxies are using .NET business connector internally to connect to the Dynamics AX objects.

The following pictures speak quietly how you can access and interact with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 objects from within Microsoft Visual  Studio 2010:

Cool session. It was all about showing muscles of Dynamics AX of how this enterprise software could manage the integration with external systems.

It was all about AIF, .NET business connector and CLR Interoperability.

For each of them I gave a simple application, like the following:

·         For AIF, I created a service using the Document Service Wizard. Then we extending it by adding a new operation. Then we published it on the local IIS. After this we were able to create a very simple console application to get data from Dynamics AX through the created web service.

·         For .NET Business connector, I created I windows application from Visual Studio .NET to call using the .NET business connector a static method that is written in X++.

·         For the CLR Interoperability, we called System.IO .NET library from within the X++. And then we a simple library in Visual Studio .NET, referenced it in Dynamics AX and then called it from within an AOT Job and X++.
