Development References

Microsoft Dynamics AX provides developers with all the tools and classes that they need to customize their implementation. Development in Microsoft Dynamics AX is done in an object-oriented environment using a language called X++.

The SDK provides you with the information that you need to work in the development environment. The following table lists references for development in Microsoft Dynamics AX.
