Welcome to the latest video in the weekly WF/WCF Screencast series.
In this short video, CSD MVP Matt Milner
guides the viewer through how to run a WF workflow in your .NET application and how to manage it. The screencast picks up with an existing state machine
workflow (created in last week's screencast
), hosting it in a simple command-line program and into
a basic ASP.net ASPX page.
To host the workflow, Matt sets up a workflow runtime and creates an instance of the workflow. We then move on from simple 'create and run one workflow instance model', and use a class to abstract the details of the runtime and mediate access to the runtime
object (to start/create a new workflow instance, access a currently existing instance, and to stop/shutdown an existing instance). Along the way, Matt explains the basic concepts around workflow runtime events and introduces workflow instances.
