Lesson 2: Customize the Functionality of the E-Commerce Site

Customize the Functionality of the E-Commerce Site

Customize the Functionality of the E-Commerce Site : Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 introduces a new suite of features that help you deploy, manage, and customize an online sales channel that is fully integrated with Microsoft Dynamics AX. E-commerce investments include a starter online store that is built on Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013, developer tools, and administrative and runtime components that integrate the online channel with Microsoft Dynamics AX. By using this new suite of e-commerce features, you can centrally manage products, merchandizing, and order fulfillment for all aspects of your online sales channel directly in Microsoft Dynamics AX. The runtime component lets you deliver content and retail services in a scalable way.

The new starter online store speeds up the development of a highly customized e-commerce site. The starter online store includes the patterns and best practices that are required to support production-ready deployments. This includes powerful, search-driven, adaptive experiences offered by SharePoint Server 2013.

This lesson discusses the details on how to customize and extend many components that are used in the
e-commerce site.

Lesson Objectives

The objectives are:

  • Explain how to modify the UI behavior of the e-commerce site.
  • Explain how to change and, or extend the functionality of the Commerce Runtime (CRT).
  • Explain how to extend the Commerce Data Exchange: Real time Service.
  • Describe how to customize or extend the Search functionality.

How to Integrate a New Service in Commerce Runtime

Microsoft Dynamics AX retail services are scalable and extensible services that are empowered through a combination of the commerce data exchange and the commerce runtime.

The commerce runtime includes several services that represent particular areas of functionality for the online store. If one service does not meet the requirements of the store, you can replace the service by using a different service and then continue to use the other services that are installed with the commerce runtime. This topic describes how to create a new service and how to add the new service to the commerce runtime configuration.

To create a new service, you have to create three objects. These objects include the Request object, Response object and Service object. After you create the service, you have to modify the Commerce Runtime configuration file. The following steps describe this process.
