HI All

Can any one help me to get an good idea in AIF, Please refer me any documents to get an good knowledge for AIF.

I have some few Clarifications

  1. What is the purpose of AIF.

  2. Where we use AIF in Ax 2009.

  3. What are the prerequests for AIF.

  4. What is the Diff between AIF & Biztalk server.



Hi Pavan,

In simple terms - AIF is used to integrate external systems with AX using XML.

Though BizTalk could be used to integrate and transform data, this technology is not native to AX.

There are lots of AIF white papers available on line which will give detailed answers to your queries.
