UI overhaul and Visual studio

A very welcomed move by Microsoft. Gone are the days of MorphX IDE, welcome Visual Studio (VS) for all your development work. A complete UI overhaul – thanks to now the web-based Dynamics 365 client, which will help you to provide improved end-user experience.

There is a lot to learn now, as Visual Studio is the new IDE for Dynamics 365 development work. One of the very first things to learn will be extensions. Earlier there was an option for the developer to modify the existing object but now, there is no such option. The developer will have to create an extension of the object and then perform the customizations. This will not affect the existing system object thereby paving way for easy future upgrades.

Integration / Data Entities

Integration has also undergone a major change. Now it is called ‘Data entities’. Data entities is a common framework for DIXF and AIF web service. The developer will have to take extra precaution while upgrading from AX 2012 as in Dynamics 365 the web services have become in a restful state with JSON-formatted data. So existing customization (in older versions of AX) related to integration will go for a complete change.

 Dynamics AX 2012 to Dynamics 365 Upgrade

Embracing LCS fully

Earlier it was possible to manage AX 2012 instance without LCS but now it is not. One has to have LCS linked with the D365 instance. From LCS one can manage many things like the update, request to MS for data refresh or a new instance, etc. Therefore, developers who have not been acquainted with LCS until now will have to learn and get used to it.

AX 2012 would require a developer to have special ‘X++’ skill but after the introduction of D365 which has all the development in Visual Studio; this opens floodgates for developers who were earlier working on Visual Studio platform to easily get in and start developing for D365. Though a bit of learning curve for them as well but not as much for the traditional developer coming from AX 2012 to D365. This is will ensure a stiff competition, which will bring out the best of each developer creating a win-win situation for organization and client.
