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.
