A free sample chapter from Packt Enterprise's book: Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation 4.0 Cookbook.
Considering workflow programs as imperative programs, we need to think of three fundamental things:
How to define workflow programs
How to build (compile) workflow programs
How to execute workflow programs
Windows Workflow Foundation 4.0 (WF) is a significant part of .NET Framework 4.0. WF makes workflow technology available to every single programmer that uses the .NET Framework 4.0. It is easy to create long running and distributed programs using WF with the right knowledge. With this chapter, you will discover that working with workflows is easy.
Packt Enterprise books can be summed up through the tagline "Professional Expertise Distilled". They take in-the-trenches knowledge from experienced software professionals, and distil it into a single, easy to follow manuscript.
