Simulating network “issues”

This post originally appeared on

In some cases it is very useful to see how a web site would perform under certain network conditions that are worse than what you have currently. You can use this tool to simulate it: As an example, if you want to simulate what a network latency of 200ms looks like while using POS, run it on the same computer as POS and configure it with 200ms outbound.

Even if you are on a good network, with this tool you can evaluate what it would look like for someone with higher latency (or other network conditions).

RetailTransactionService (Real-time service) customization sample – Secure app settings

This video demonstrates how to store application settings securely and manage them in AX. These settings are needed for AX business logic and CommerceRuntime business logic. The data is fetched via a RetailTransactionServiceEx call. The CommerceRuntime service takes care of calling the RTS and caching for a configurable period.  Video also shows how to test this by exposing it via RetailServer and using the RetailServer TestClient.
