AIF-service call with COM and .Net Business Connector

When executing an AIF-service with the COM and .Net Business Connector the client will not be notified about exceptions during the execution. The reason for this is, that AIF-services are always executed within a transaction (ttslevel = 1) even when no ttsBegin has been executed. And as described on the X++ blog, exceptions are not caught within the transaction (sample is taken from the X++ blog):

   1:  try 
   2:  { 
   3:      MyTableType t; 
   4:      ttsBegin;    // Start a transaction 
   5:      try  
   6:      { 
   7:           throw error(“Something bad happened”); 
   8:      } 
   9:      catch 
  10:      { 
  11:          // Innermost catch block 
  12:      } 
  13:      update_recordset t … // Must run within a transaction 
  14:      ttsCommit;    // Commit the transaction 
  15:  } 
  16:  catch 
  17:  { 
  18:      Info (“In outermost exception handler”); 
  19:  } 

The exception thrown in line 7 would be caught in line 16.

If you need to handle the exceptions on the client-side, you can create a workaround by calling a ttsAbort before executing the AIF-service code. The best way to implement this workaround is to create a new AIF-service that executes the ttsAbort before calling the original AIF-service code. In that case the original AIF-service can stay “as is”.
