Consuming Web Services using Microsoft Dynamics AX

by Kenny Saelen Klaas Deforche | March 2014 | Enterprise Articles

In this article, created by Klaas Deforche and Kenny Saelen, the authors of the book Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 Services, we will see how to consume a web service from Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

In the previous versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX, you could add a web service reference in a reference node in the AOT. This generated proxy classes and other artifacts that you could then use to consume the service. In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, we no longer have the option to add service references to the AOT. Instead, Microsoft Visual Studio is used to generate all artifacts, which are then added to the AOT.

How this works and how this can be done will all become clear in this article.

The following topics will be covered in this article:

  • Installing the Visual Studio Tools: We have to install additional components because part of the development takes place in Visual Studio 2010. You will learn which components to install and what exactly they do.
  • Visual Studio development: After introducing the demo service, we will create a reference for the services with the help of Visual Studio. We will take you through this process step-by-step.
  • X++ development: Finally, we will demonstrate how we can use the Visual Studio project to consume services in Microsoft Dynamics AX. You will also gain an insight into the different deployment modes that are available to deploy the project's output.

Connecting to MongoHq API with RestKit

by Taras Kalapun | September 2013 | Open Source

In this article by Taras Kalapun, the author of RestKit for iOS, discusses how to connect to MonoHq API with RestKit. While performing a request operation, the object manager will use the base URL and the provided request path, to construct the NSURL object with [NSURL URLWithString:relativeToURL:]. The way this method evaluates the relativity of the URL can sometimes be confusing and surprising, and one can experience a lot of errors regarding this. For example, a small part of the AFNetworking documentation is provided, so one can better understand how the base URL and different paths interact.

Connecting to Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 with Visual Studio

by Jayaram Krishnaswamy | July 2010 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

SQL Server Compact Edition 3.5 can be used to create applications that are useful for a number of business uses such as: Portable applications; Occasionally connected clients and embedded applications and devices. SQL Server Compact differs from other SQL Servers in that there is just one file which can be password protected and features 128-bit file level encryption. It is referential integrity compliant; supports multiple connections; has transactions support with rich data types.

In this tutorial by Jayaram Krishnaswamy, various scenarios where you may need to connect to SQL Server Compact using Visual Studio IDE (both 2008 and 2010) are described in detail. Connecting to SQL Server Compact 4.5 using Visual Studio 2010 Express (free version of Visual Studio) is also described. The connection is the starting point for any database related program and therefore mastering the connection task is crucial to work with the SQL Server Compact.

Connecting to a web service (Should know)

by Geoff Chiang | September 2013 | Open Source

This article by Geoff Chiang the author of Instant Spring Tool Suite is aiming to get you up and running developing with various Spring technologies, providing you with enough to give you a head start in Spring development.

The term web service is a nebulous one, encompassing a range of both technologies and approaches. At its heart, a web service is simply a software service which is accessible over a network, designed for machine-to-machine interaction. Early web services were based on the W3C WS-* set of standards, with interfaces described using WSDL and interaction using SOAP messages. This approach seems to have fallen out of favor somewhat, with lightweight RESTful approaches now prevalent.

In this recipe, we're going to retrieve weather data from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. This service exposes Australian weather data in JSON format. As we're about to see, STS and Spring Integration allow us to interact with web services with very little effort.
