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 fault handling works in Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) 3.5.
In this screencast, Matt starts with an existing workflow application (a console application), and adds a custom activity that throws an exception. Initially, Matt demonstrates how this is thrown and it's effect on the workflow instance. He then demonstrates
how to add fault handlers into a WF sequence to handle faults in a more graceful manner - very similar to the C# try/catch pattern. Matt also explains how exceptions 'bubble up' within a WF workflow - very similar to standard .NET applications.
