About this Course

This course gives a comprehensive foundation for the use of the development environment and integrated tools, focuses on fetching data from the database, shows how to create and modify classes and methods, according to Best Practices using object oriented concepts, discusses how to create and modify advanced forms, and shows how to fetch data into reports based on queries or X++ code.

Course Outline

Module 1: Development Environment and Tools

This chapter gives a comprehensive foundation for the use of the development environment and integrated tools.

Lessons

  • Development environment
  • Files (Client, Application, Server)
  • Transfer of modifications to test environment
  • AOS Setup
  • Application architecture
  • X-references
  • Application hierarchy browser
  • Microsoft Visio
  • Performance/monitoring
  • Debugger
  • System Monitoring
  • Method Trace
  • Development Warnings
  • SQL Trace
  • Query Time Limit
  • Deadlocks
  • Database Trace
  • Code Profiler
  • Application upgrade
  • Upgrade project
  • Compare tool

Lab : Lab

  • Use the tools to analyze the structures of the standard application.
  • Find the bottleneck in a specific function in the standard application
  • Make an upgrade of a project containing a few modified application objects.

After completing this chapter, students will be able to:

  • make a transfer of modifications from the development environment to test or live environment
  • browse, examine, analyze and understand the structures of the standard application
  • use the monitoring tools and interpret the related reporting
  • understand the upgrade of modifications from one version or service pack to another version or service pack

Module 2: Fetching Data

This chapter focuses on fetching data from the database. The goal is to make optimal communication with the database with respect to performance. In addition, the student will have knowledge in how to use temporary tables.

Lessons

  • Query (Structure, Properties)
  • Cost based optimizer
  • while select (Syntax, Qualifiers, Field lists, Join, Placeholders/Literals)
  • Caching
  • Locking
  • Temporary tables

After completing this chapter, students will be able to:

  • program optimal database access
  • understand the concept of literals and placeholders
  • understand the caching mechanisms in Microsoft Dynamics AX
  • use temporary tables in classes, forms, and reports

Module 3: Classes

This chapter shows how to create and modify classes and methods, according to Best Practices using object oriented concepts.

Lessons

  • Object Oriented implementation in Microsoft Dynamics AX
  • Most important differences from the standard application and C#, VB.NET and Java examples
  • Classdeclaration
  • Variables
  • Data members
  • Methods (qualifiers, parameters and return value)
  • Overriding/Overloading
  • Access modifiers
  • Types of Microsoft Dynamics AX Classes (Examples in parenthesis)
  • Application classes
  • Basic functionality (Dialog)
  • Wrapping of general routines (NumberSequence)
  • Form support classes (LedgerJournalEngine)
  • Table "polymorphism" (SalesTableType)
  • API to the modules (LedgerVoucher, CustVoucher)
  • Batch processing (RunBase)
  • Kernel classes
  • Tools (Binary, DialogBox, RecordSortedList)
  • Application objects (FormDataSource, QueryBuildRange,..)
  • Integration (COM, ODBC, IO)
  • System classes (xApplication, xCompany, xInfo)
  • Runbase framework
  • Args-objects

After completing this chapter, students will be able to:

  • understand the implementation of the object oriented concept in Microsoft Dynamics AX
  • create a new class according to Best Practice
  • understand and implement a solution using polymorphism
  • use the RunBase-framework to create new batch processes
  • transfer information using the args-object

Module 4: Forms

This chapter discusses how to create and modify advanced forms.

Lessons

  • Architecture
  • AOT (general methods, datasource, design)
  • Kernel classes and object model
  • Properties
  • Best practice (Initializing via args, Design, Validation / Modification)
  • Placement of code (Priority: Table, Support class, Datasource, Design)
  • Top ten methods to use
  • Handles to the objects in forms
  • Interaction between form and RunBase classes
  • Queries. Synchronizing (Active/Passive), Joins, Modify by code (Filtering, Sorting, Aggregation)
  • Special controls in short (ActiveX, List view, Table, Tree, Window)
  • Special forms (Lookup, Wizard)
  • Activate a form from X++ using ClassFactory

After completing this chapter, students will be able to:

  • understand the structure of a form and the underlying kernel classes
  • make decisions of where to place the code
  • use the top-ten methods in forms
  • dynamically modify the fetch of data

Module 5: Reports

This shows how to fetch data into reports based on queries or X++ code.

Lessons

  • Architecture
  • AOT (general methods, data sources, design)
  • Kernel classes and object model
  • Top ten methods to use
  • Handles to the objects in reports
  • The RunBaseReportStd framework
  • Fetch data by Query and X++
  • Templates / Autodesign / Design
  • Use of temporary tables for consolidation
  • Calculation on (sub)totals
  • Report Wizard

After completing this chapter, students will be able to:

  • understand the structure of a report and the underlying kernel classes
  • make decisions of where to place the code
  • implement a dialog using the RunBaseReportStd framework
  • understand the principles of fetching data in a reports
  • make dynamically changes to the design
  • use temporary tables for consolidation

Module 6: Appendix: Solutions

This Appendix contains all the answers to the chapter exercises, Test Your Knowledge, and Test Your Skills sections. It is required that students as a part of the prerequisites have a knowledge level on the following subjects as described in this literature: Object oriented analysis and design
