Application Integration Framework (AIF) enables companies to integrate Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 and communicate with external business processes and partners through the exchange of XML over various transport media. AIF enables both business-to-business and application-to-application integration scenarios.

Following enhancements are new in AX 2009
* Create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations are now supported.
* The programming model for AIF supports document services that encapsulate business logic and are the interface to external systems.
* AIF provides functionality for consuming external Web services from within X++.
* Performance improvements include the ability to scale up and handle more messages through parallel message processing and the addition of multiple AOSs.
* New document services for additional commonly-used documents.

      Hello Sanjay,
      Reviewed the post about web services in AIF.  Is there a place where I can get a copy of the code that you pasted into IIS and Visual Studio?
