  • Windows Workflow Foundation 4 and persistence
    The persistence class out of the box is called SqlWorkflowInstanceStore and as the name suggests it saves workflow data in either SQL Server 2005 or 2008. We can attach it to either a WorkflowApplication or a WorkflowServiceHost and persist workflows when we want. This can be used to run only short lived workflows and doesn’t support persistence. var instanceStore = new SqlWorkflowInstanceStore(connStr); WorkflowApplication app = new WorkflowApplication(workflow); app.InstanceStore = instanceStore; app.Run(); Okay its a little more involved then that. Enjoy!

  • Hiding the XAMLX from a workflow service
    In Windows Workflow Foundation 4 it’s easy to create a workflow and expose it as a WCF service. But one thing is that it exposes a XAMLX endpoint to each client can see the service actually implemented as a workflow service instead of a regular service. One way to hide that is to use a regular SVC file as the implementation and point that to a workflow using the WorkflowServiceHostFactory. First we need to use a regular workflow instead of a workflow service. Tags: NET Workflow WCF WF4 VS2010 data]. data.ToString()]. Enjoy!

  • Flowcharts in Workflow 4 and the Switch activity
    Flowcharts are a nice addition to Windows Workflow Foundation 4. They allow for a lot of pretty complex behavior that is hard to do in a sequential workflow. In WF 3 we used to model these complex behaviors as state machine workflows. Enter the flowchart in Windows Workflow Foundation 4 One of the good things is that a flowchart is not another workflow type. No it is just another activity to drop in a workflow. So you are free to combine sequential work with a flowchart in one workflow. Tags: NET Workflow WF4 VS2010 So far so good. Enjoy!

  • What's New in Windows Workflow Foundation in.NET 4.5 (part 1)
    Search Searching through workflows is another big one. With small workflows it is quite easy to see where a variable is used but when workflows get bigger this becomes an increasingly hard problem. With WF4 I typically solve this by opening the workflow XAML in a text editor and searching the raw XML. The new search capability will let you search through a workflow in the designer, as you really should, just as any other Visual Studio artifact. Workflow WF4 Futures dotnetmagfeatures where announced. Auto surround with a Sequence.

  • Rehosting the Workflow Designer in WF4
    Beta 2 With Windows Workflow Foundation 3 it was possible to rehost the workflow designer in your own application. With Windows Workflow Foundation 4 live has become much better on the rehosting front In fact it is possible to create the fully functional and useful workflow editor below in about 200 lines of code. And loading or saving a workflow is easy to, all it takes is a Load() and Save() function pointing to a XAML file. One thing that is needed is to register the workflow activity designer metadata. Validating the workflow. null ). {.

  • Workflow parameters in Window Workflow Foundation 4
    Creating parameters for a workflow is quite easy to do in WF 4. Just open the arguments tab in the workflow and add each input or output parameter you need and the required type. Now in WF 3 passing data to a workflow was done using a Dictionary to specify the input. Every time you create an in or out argument the workflow will also get a corresponding public property. Tags: Workflow WF4 VS2010 This is very flexible but also very brittle as it is all magic of key names matching property names. This approach still works as the following code demonstrates.

  • Converting a C# workflow into XAML
    A interesting question that came up last week was how to convert workflows defined in C# to XAML. co worker of one of the attendees of the Essential Windows Workflow Foundation 4 course had been experiencing a lot of problems with the workflow designer and decided to create their workflows in C# instead of using the designer to generate XAML. While these workflows run just fine you do lose the visual aspect of the designer, one of the benefits of workflow in the first place. Take the following workflow defined in C#. Enjoy!

  • Versioning long running Workflow Services in WF4, the code
    In my previous WF4 post I described the principal of how to version workflow services using the WCF 4 RoutingService. The workflow service with 2 different versions of same workflow. The second version of the workflow has more activities in the tree so it can’t load workflow instances from version 1. Each workflow is hosted in a different XAMLX file and the second was created by copying the first and making the required changes to it. It knows about one existing workflow instance previously created and will create a new one. class Program. {.

  • Workflow Receive activity and message correlation
    With WF4 it is quite easy to use data that is part of the request message, for example an order identifier, to route multiple WCF messages to the same workflow. It is also possible to have multiple messages that can start a new workflow. In this blog post I am going to show both these concepts in a single workflow. This workflow is going to be able to receive three different messages, AddItem, AddExpensiveItem and Submit. Either AddItem or AddExpensiveItem can start a new workflow while Submit can only be done with an existing workflow. ReferenceID0.

  • Workflow 4 and soap faults
    RC 1 Using the ReceiveAndSendReply activity template and the WorkflowServiceHost it is easy to create a workflow service. Other applications can communicate with the workflow just as if it is a regular WCF service, they never need to know the difference. Throwing a FaultException When a FaultException is thrown in a workflow service pretty much the expected thing is done. But with a workflow service there is no service contract class we can add the attribute to. So how do we specify the fault contract with a workflow service? But what about faults? Enjoy!
