What's Bugging the AIF

Well you heard it here first. The Application Integration Framework (AIF) for Dynamics AX 2009 was dropped by us due to its inability to process large volumes of data for journal imports. This issue was raised with Microsoft as a bug and credit must be given to them for a very speedy and concerted effort to find the source of the issue. I had a conference call with Michael Merz and a whole bunch of people from Microsoft land a few weeks ago just after we dropped the AIF. They undertook to do some in-house stress testing and report back as soon as they could. The have upheld the commitment.

I received confirmation this week that there is indeed a bug, not actually in the AIF but with the GL Service that is called in Dynamics. Apparently some sort of validation was being called at a line level that required some caching. This turned out to be less than optimal on larger sets of data.

A hot fix should be available at the end of this week.
