Welcome to the latest video in the weekly WF/WCF Screencast series.

In this short video, CSD MVP Matt Milner from PluralSight guides the viewer through how to add and use persistence services of Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), and how to save a idle workflow and resume the running of the workflow in another WF client. The persistence service is typically used to allow applications to persist application state (if the application were to crash or be shut down, the state is still preserved) or balance work across multiple processes/servers - both of which can be done without having to do extensive program.

Matt loads a standard SqlWorkflowPersistenceService (provided WF out of the box) via two routes - via code, and via the .NET config file. Along each route, we configures it with proper timers to help prevent contention and configure the timing of polling.

For additional information on WF, please check out the WF Dev Center on MSDN and the .NET Endpoint team blog. For more information on classes offered by Aaron and the PluralSight folks, check out their catalog of instructor led courses and new online courses that cover a variety of Microsoft technologies, ranging from .NET v3.5 to WSS to BizTalk server.
