Windows Workflow Foundation
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
This 3-day workshop walks developers through the process of learning Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation (WF). Microsoft has provided the Windows Workflow Foundation, a set of assemblies based on the .NET Framework 2.0 (as part of the .NET Framework 3.0), along with a full-featured workflow designer built on top of Visual Studio 2005, and it's free.
Windows Workflow Foundation makes it easy to create applications that follow a flow, or react to events and move from state to state. By providing a visual interface for designing the applications, and by binding code activities directly to the design of the application, Windows Workflow Foundation makes it easier than ever to create and maintain complex business applications. In addition, Windows Workflow Foundation provides a runtime engine that manages your application's behavior (that is, the "plumbing") and enforces the workflow. The runtime makes sure the workflow behaves in the manner in which you designed and coded it.
