Dynamics AX 2009: Hotfix 981339 for Consuming external WCF Web service

I wanted to highlight a specific Hotfix that was released and is part of RU5 and RU6 for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. This was actually released just before RU5 was compiled and set ready for downloading and installing last year.

This specific KB is: 981339, and you can find a detail list of the latest fixes for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 through PartnerSource or CustomerSource found here.: Hot Fixes Released For Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009

The list was last updated this past March 15th, so it's a list that is keep up with on a regular basis.

Now for this specific hot fix, it addresses the issue to where when you consume an External WCF service from a service reference within Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009, and the communication with the service does not close properly or enters a faulted state.

With this faulted state, before this fix the only thing you could do was restart the AOS. Now with this fix, it addresses the proper openning and closing of the service client the service reference generates, and therefore is closer to how a client in C# would act.

This is a great fix, and one that you can get directly just for that KB through a ticket request through Microsoft Support, or one that you can get through applying RU6.

This is just another example of the value of staying current with your Dynamics AX investment, including looking and reviewing when RU are released. I highlight this in, the case for staying current and upgrading in the following two post.:

Thanks to a fellow Sunriser's John F. & Debra D. for bringing this hot fix to light. I thought it was for sure something that should be posted about, and also help enforce the fact that as a company one of the ways to ensure long term ROI is the continued upgrade and staying current process.

That's all for now, but check back soon as more to come! Till Next time!
