Course Description

This three-day instructor-led course puts the techniques learnt in Development I in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 and Development II in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 courses into practice directly in the application. It also introduces more advanced features of X++ and MorphX, and encourages the use of the Testing Framework to build for more reliable coding.

Who Should Attend

The intended audience is experienced systems consultants typically working for a Microsoft Dynamics partner that is selling, consulting, implementing, and supporting Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Course Outline

Module 1: X++ Unit Test Framework
This module describes how the X++ Unit Test framework allows for unit tests to be created along with the code they are designed to test.

Module 2: Working with Data
This chapter explains the correct approach to database functions when processing large amount of data in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Module 3: Classes
This lesson introduces some of the most commonly used system classes, and demonstrates ways they can be used to support modifications.

Module 4: Forms
This module provides a comprehensive foundation for using forms in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 to interact with the end-user.

Module 5: Visual Studio Integration
This module explains the Visual Studio tools built specifically for Microsoft Dynamics AX development.

Module 6: Workflow
This module introduces the development side of creating a workflow. Workflow is a system in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 that allows business processes to be automated.
