Developing on a shared AOS (and using TFS)

Jan 20, 2012 at 12:31 PM

First of all I want to mention that this tool is created for my company that is a typical 'Value added reseller' which implements Dynamics AX for customers... and as such create solutions / modifications specific for this customer... in either the implementation/project phase or the support phase.

This toolkit is based on a couple of decisions / considerations, mentioning the most important ones:

  • The firs one is regarding layer usage: the patch layer (VAP) will be used for your 'work in progress' and the normal layer (VAR) for your released software... in case of AX 2012 this will mean that in the VAR layer the model will be composed.
  • and the other is to use a shared AOS development environment.

This discussing will be about 'Developing on a shared AOS (and using TFS)'.
