Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Windows Workflow Foundation is a ground-breaking addition to the core of the .NET Framework that allows you to orchestrate human and system interactions as a series of workflows that can be easily mapped, analyzed, adjusted, and implemented.

As business problems become more complex, the need for a workflow-based solution has never been more evident. WF provides a simple and consistent way to model and implement complex problems. As a developer, you focus on developing the business logic for individual workflow tasks. The runtime handles the execution of those tasks after they have been composed into a workflow.

Beginning WF demonstrates, in an eminently readable and accessible style, how Microsoft's Workflow Foundation (WF) technology can be used in a wide variety of applications.Loaded with lots of simple yet demonstrative sample projectsVery hands-on with practical how-to informationIndexed by feature so specific questions are easily answered-->What youll learn-->

Beginning WF will take you step by step through many of the useful applications of workflow technology. Along the way, you will: Create designer-based and code-based workflowsCommunicate between applications using workflow activitiesImplement SQL persistence with custom participantsCreate workflow extensions and custom activitiesBuild applications that support long-running workflowsHost workflows in WCF services-->Who this book is for-->

This book is perfectly suited to anyone using or considering Microsoft's Windows Workflow Foundation.

Synopsis:

Beginning WF demonstrates, in an eminently readable and accessible style, how Microsofta (TM)s Workflow Foundation (WF) technology can be used in a wide variety of applications. This book has lots of sample projects that demonstrate the most useful design patterns, and is organized intuitively by feature so specific questions are easily answered.

Rather than simply describing the technology, this book is project focused. Each chapter shows the reader how to build an application and then explains each of the new concepts that were introduced. So with each successive chapter, the reader is creating themselves and experiencing the technology. Each concept or feature is also indexed so the reader can also use this as a hand-on reference. Either way, the reader will easily learn to become proficient in Workflow Foundation.
