    Dynamics AX 2009 Version Control Interview


    At Convergence in Copenhagen 2008 Morten Jensen (PM in the MorphX Team) and I were interviewed by Ben Riga on the version control integration in Dynamics AX 2009.

    In AX 4 we first introduced version control with integration to SourceSafe.  In AX 2009, we introduced Team Foundation Server (TFS) support as well as a MorphX VCS a low –end home-brew version control.  I demo the MorphX VCS feature showing how it integrates Check In/Check Out functionality directly into the AX IDE.  MorphX VCS is included with Dynamics AX.  The target for this low-end VCS is VARs maintaining numerous client system customizations on the same code base.

    Version Control is just one leg of the Dynamics AX team’s commitment to Engineering Excellence.  They’ve also integrated unit testing and best practices policy enforcement.  The Dynamics AX team uses this integration themselves integrating with Source Depot (an internal Microsoft versioning system).  They are looking at moving to TFS.

    Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 on Windows 7


    Today I installed the beta version of Windows 7 on my laptop on top of my Vista. My Vista already had an AX installation, but it didn't work after the upgrade to Windows 7. So I re-installed the developer flavour of Dynamics AX 2009 (all on one box), and pointed it at my exisitng DB. And without having to install any drivers or other updates I had AX2009 RTM running on Windows 7.

    If you get the chance; make sure to take Windows 7 for a spin.
