Hi, I am looking at simultaneously making WCF calls and updating SharePoint list data in a Workflow.
I know that the OOB workflow activites (create task / create list item / check in document) will "batch", in that the transactions do not get submitted to the database until a workflow commit point is hit. This is great because it means we have secure "rollback"
handling, if one of the operations fails then NONE of them are committed.
My main problem is how to hook these up with WCF calls. I know that there is an activity in WF 3.5 (SendActivity / ReceiveActivity) which relate directly to WCF calls, but do these batch in a single transaction, alongside the SharePoint
If the answer is no, then I am facing the problem that my WCF service is going to get called whether the next commit point is reached or not!
