    The Discussion

      I am really liking this series so far - I watched the first 4 videos yesterday, this one today, and am looking forward to any more you will be doing on this topic.


      If Silverlight 4 Beta was supported for VS2010 RC, I would be following along, but alas.

      Thanks for the feedback - much appreciated. I take your point about VS2010 RC - I'm in the same place myself and have stuck with the beta for the moment. Hopefully, this will get sorted out soon Smiley


      By the way - there's around another 6 of these videos to publish yet, working my way through and will publish 1 or 2 a day for the next few days.

      i have a question ,


      i would like use WCF4 (Channel object model) , and WF4  , in order to build , a custom transaction object (an activity). and use it with a workflow (scheduled workflow IHE , for example).


      i continue in french -> d'une manière plus générale , j'aurais une application qui ferai différents Workflow de transactions avec d'autres applications , avec différents types de messages (HL7 , DICOM,... ). et en utilisant différents mode de transports (TCP , HTTP , SMTP/POP3 , web service ...). 


      J'avais pensé utilisé les possibilités qu'offre le couple WCF4/WF4 (re-hosting du designer ,Channel ...), pour construire une infrastructure de communication et d'orchestration qui me permettrais de faire tout ce que je veux.


      do you have an idea for this ?
