Dynamics AX 4.0 - Unit testing (ch. 9)

I wanted to step back to a thread I started back in review of Dynamics AX 4.0 and what is new. In that I talked about unit testing, and the unit test framework. With that, I talked about the concept of using this to implement a new development methodology (new only to Dynamics AX) in that you first create the unit testing scripts, which in turn the developer creates code to satisfy, and in turn allows for less interations of the development cycle, and less wasted time.

With that I found this great Channel 9 20 mins video that introduces one to the Dynamics AX 4.0 Unit Testing framework. Check it out:

Dynamics AX 4.0 - Unit testing

Anyway this is for sure off the main current topic our Snap To it project we are collectively working on, here at this blog. I wanted to post this nice resource though because this is a very helpful video, about a topic that deserves great understand, and attention.

Check back soon for Part II of the Snap To It post! :-)

Hi George,

Thanks for your great blog... It makes alot of things much clearer for some of us.

Since you are very well connected to MS, I'd like to know if you know the strategy a company should use to do some stress test on a soon soon to be production system with DAX SP1. It looks like that MS took out the benchmarking tools of 4.0 and did not replace it yet with a new tool.
My Customer is going live in april with DAX 4.01 (SP1) and i'd like to know what should I use to stress test the soon to be prodiction servers.
We were planning on using Benchmarking Tools... but it's out now. MS say they want to use VSTS... But I can't find a valid documentation on how to use this...
do you have any insight stories about this?

You are suffering from what everyone is suffering from. You have to make use of the bench marking tools within DAX, and then your on your own to create test scripts, etc. that stress test this for you. VSTS is not something that can be used with DAX right now, without a lot of custom work.

I was wrong in my statement about how you can't use VSTS with Dynamics AX 4.01. You can now make use of it, and the documentation that exists for telling how to make use of it lives within the DAX 40 Install & Config courseware. This courseware is ava. to Partners and can be downloaded from PartnerSource.
