Integration Framework v2 is a collection of components for transferring data and maintaining data consistency between a Dynamicweb solution and Dynamics AX 2012.
The framework supports two types of integrations:
• A Batch Integration uses scheduled tasks to import and export data at intervals (hourly, daily, weekly, etc.).
• A Live Integration submits real-time requests for data from Dynamicweb to Dynamics AX 2012, and uses that data to show e.g. customer-specific prices, stock levels, or to create orders directly in your ERP-system.
In terms of the data flow, both batch and live integrations work in the same general manner
✔️ The Dynamicweb solution makes a request for data in XML format
✔️ The request is relayed to the remote system by the Dynamicweb Connector service
✔️ The plugin/code unit reacts by extracting data from the remote system
✔️ The data is wrapped in an XML format understood by Dynamicweb (or - for passive plugins - returned as is, and transformed using XSLT on the Dynamicweb side)
✔️ The XML is returned via the Dynamicweb Connector service to the Dynamicweb solution as a response
