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:

If you wanted to know where the KPIs in Dynamics AX 2009 are getting its values from, then you might need to have a look at this document:

This documents describes in detailes how to trace those values in Visual Studio.

I had a case where I tried to call a Dynamics AX 2009 AIF Web service from an XML Web Service (.asmx). But the new thing in this case is that the AIF Web Service call is actually inside a dll referenced in this new asmx web service.
When you reference that dll into a web service/asp.net project in the Visual Studio .NET, and then call the function inside that dll which calls the Dynamics AX AIF Web Service… you will have the following error:

System.InvalidOperationException: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'AXGLServiceRef.GeneralJournalService' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.
at System.ServiceModel.Description.ConfigLoader.LoadChannelBehaviors(ServiceEndpoint serviceEndpoint, String configurationName)
at System.ServiceModel.ChannelFactory.ApplyConfiguration(String configurationName)
at System.ServiceModel.ChannelFactory.InitializeEndpoint(String configurationName, EndpointAddress address)
at System.ServiceModel.ChannelFactory`1..ctor(String endpointConfigurationName, EndpointAddress remoteAddress)
at System.ServiceModel.EndpointTrait`1.CreateSimplexFactory()
at System.ServiceModel.ClientBase`1.CreateChannelFactoryRef(EndpointTrait`1 endpointTrait)
at System.ServiceModel.ClientBase`1.InitializeChannelFactoryRef() at System.ServiceModel.ClientBase`1..ctor()
at AXWCFClassLibrary.AXGLServiceRef.GeneralJournalServiceClient..ctor()
at AXWCFClassLibrary.Class1.checkme() at Service.HelloWorld(String name, String accval) in d:WebSite1App_CodeService.cs:line 21

This error is actually due to that the end point that this dll is trying to reach is unidentified to this web application. What you have to do is:

  1. Go to the class library project where you created that dll
  2. Go to app.config
  3. Copy the whole ServiceModel part
  4. Go to the web.config in your new web application
  5. Paste the ServiceModel part inside the Configuration part

By this, you will be able to execute without getting that endpoint error
