Updated: February 3, 2012

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

When you develop a Microsoft Dynamics AX application, you should consider running methods on the Application Object Server (AOS) if they do one of the following:

  • Have more than one select.

  • Select more than a few records.

  • Call methods on the server.

Since every database operation goes through the AOS, if your code does more than one operation on the database, it should run on the AOS. If your code has more than one call to the AOS, it should run on the AOS.

This section describes how to run your application objects on the AOS to increase application and server performance.
