In my main blog post regarding Dynamics AX Retail 3rd party sales channel integration I presented the mechanism to trigger BizTalk to take action after an AX scheduler job run. In this blog I’ll provide some more details on this particular topic. Let me first explain how the change tracking mechanism is leveraged on AX HQ side and let’s then take a closer look on how change tracking can be leveraged on the channel database and Async client database for use by middleware like Microsoft BizTalk.
In my main blog post regarding Dynamics AX Retail/3rd party integration I mentioned leveraging Real Time Service to allow middleware (like Microsoft BizTalk) and 3rd party systems to report to AX on the results of their actions. As the meta data is written into the standard Dynamics AX Retail download sessions and upload sessions forms, these forms will now serve system administrators to have visibility and control even beyond their the Dynamics AX Retail CDX landscape (CDX -> see rectangle in the middle, beyond CDX -> bottom rectangle):

Some people hate it.. some people cherish it as a means to eternalize their brilliant designs… DOCUMENTING. One way or the other, in the bigger projects you can easily fill up a local library with all the paper produced. That’s why a good solution design is crucial in these projects. If such a design covers 1 system like AX, it’s easier to come to a holistic view on the desired solution. But what if your solution spans across multiple systems, all requiring some installation, configuration and customization. How do you keep the overview without getting lost in the details? For this situation your solution design needs an extra helper: the UML sequence diagram:
