Hallo Guy

These days i am trying my hands on Windows Workflow . I came accross with a nice article by “David Chappell” . This is really helpful to understand what WF means and how it works for a WF begininer.

Introducing Windows Workflow Foundation

Everybody who writes code wants to build great software. If that software is a server application, part of being great is scaling well, handling large loads without consuming too many resources. A great application should also be as easy as possible to understand, both for its creators and for the people who maintain it.

Achieving both of these goals isn’t easy. Approaches that help applications scale tend to break them apart, dividing their logic into separate chunks that can be hard to understand. Yet writing unified logic that lives in a single executable can make scaling the application all but impossible. What’s needed is a way to keep the application’s logic unified, making it more understandable, while still letting the application scale.

Achieving this is a primary goal of Windows Workflow Foundation (WF). By supporting logic created using workflows, WF provides a foundation for creating unified and scalable applications. Along with this, WF can also simplify other development challenges, such as coordinating parallel work, tracking a program’s execution, and more.

WF was first released with the .NET Framework 3.0 in 2006, then updated in the .NET Framework 3.5. These first two versions were useful, especially for independent software vendors (ISVs), but they haven’t become mainstream technologies for enterprise developers. With the version of WF that’s part of the .NET Framework 4……..
