Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 White Papers: Code Upgrade


The following link will allow you to download a series of white papers that are related to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 code upgrade, among other stuff.

In summary, the white papers cover the following:
Code Upgrade Overview - Discusses changes in the code upgrade for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Date Effective Patterns - Describes how to use date effective tables to store and track object history in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Implementing and Extending the Organization Model - Discusses the organization model in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, and provides guidelines for extending the organization model for new types of operating units that are required to support industry vertical scenarios.

Developing with Table Inheritance - Outlines the developer experience of creating and programming with the table inheritance data model in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Eventing - Describes the concept of events and how they can be used in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Migrating Extended Data Type Relations - Describes how developers can migrate EDT relations to table relations in the Application Object Tree (AOT) in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012.

Implementing the Global Address Book Framework - Describes the address book framework in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, which allows information to be shared across Microsoft Dynamics AX companies and entities through a central repository of users and organizations. It has been enhanced to facilitate easier sharing.

Implementing the Account and Financial Dimensions Framework - Highlights new patterns used to represent accounts and financial dimensions and describes how to convert the existing patterns to the new Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 patterns.

Implementing the Budget Control Framework - Includes information about key integration patterns for new financial frameworks, how to make budget requests, and how to use the ledger budget control framework with core integration patterns.

Mapping the LedgerTrans Table to General Journal Tables - Describes how the LedgerTrans table has been mapped to multiple general journal tables.

Implementing the Item-Product Data Management Framework - Highlights the new patterns that are used to represent item-product master data. When detailing the new patterns, the document also describes the pattern that is being replaced and how developers should approach updating their code.

I have been able to go through a few of them and there is a lot of work to be done to get savvy in AX 2012.

I would suggest having a virtual machine with AX 2012 before even considering going over these white papers, believe me, I started looking at them without having an open instance of AX 2012 in front of me, and many stuff did not make any sense (i.e. Table inheritance development).

I hope you guys can share what you are discovering with the community at some point.

Take care!
