Hello Everyone

I am very much new to workflow and looking for some documentation which can do comparison between the application architecture based on using workflow and without work.

Thanks in advance.

Solidify Your C# Application Architecture with Design Patterns

  
design pattern can solve many problems by providing a framework for building an application. Design patterns, which make the design process cleaner and more efficient, are especially well-suited for use in C# development because it is an object-oriented language. Existing design patterns make good templates for your objects, allowing you to build software faster. This article describes several popular design patterns you can use in your own applications, including the singleton, the decorator, the composite, and the state classes, which can improve the extensibility of your applications and the reuse of your objects.

Workflow Services: Visual Design of Workflows with WCF and WF 4

  

The .NET Framework 4 makes it easier than ever to implement WCF services using WF. We'll demonstrate just how easy it is by modeling a long-running, durable and instrumented workflow based on a real-world business case without having to write any code.

Foundations: Windows Workflow Design Patterns

  

Design patterns provide a common, repeatable approach to solving software development tasks, and many different patterns can describe how to accomplish a certain goal in code. When developers begin working with Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), they often ask about how to accomplish common tasks with the technology. This month's column discusses several design patterns used in WF.

Blogging: Design Your Own Weblog Application from Scratch Using ASP.NET, JavaScript, and OLE DB

  

The ASP.NET advanced templated controls, such as the DataList and DataGrid, are perfect for many data representation situations. However, when you need the flexibility to render a variety of layouts, the Repeater control is what you need. In this article the author builds a full-featured blog application to illustrate the use of the Repeater and DataList controls that render nested data in a master-detail relationship. He then discusses how to override the default implementations of these controls by adding some client-side JavaScript code that makes the blog more responsive and enhances its usability.

WCF Workflow Service Application - Required Extensions

  
Hello, I built a WCF Workflow Service App and I built a custom activity that requires an extension in the workflow. In a web app, I'm trying to create a service reference to the WCF workflow service but it says that an extension that is required has not been provided; so how do I consume a service with a required extension? At what point do I supply that extension in an ASP.NET scenario? Thanks. http://linkedin.com/in/brianmains

I need a workflow triggered by a workflow...how do I design this? Beginner question

  
I've added the Approval workflow to a forms library and it generates the necessary tasks and emails for 2 levels (serial) of Approval on the form. When the form has been approved the 2nd time, I want it to trigger another workflow that notifies a 3rd person of the existence of the form and assigns her a separate non-approval task. I'm creating it in SharePoint Designer, and I can do most of it, but I'm not sure what field I'm looking for, at the beginning in order to start the workflow. Currently, there is no column for Approval Status in the form library, only a column that shows the status of the workflow (In Progress or Approved).  I tried If Workflow Status equals Approved then email.... but that didn't work. Any help is greatly appreciated.  I'm looking for the data source field and the list item field and value, I guess.  

Book to learn and Develop enterprise application using InfoPath with workflow in MOSS 2007

  
Hi all, I'm new to infopath forms and i dont find much articles to develop enterprise application (I'm coding for an ERP module). I have sys environement of MOSS 2007, windows 2008 (64 bit), MS SQL 2008  Though it is easy to design and publish form to a site,  devloping the form with more business rules and validation seems to be vague for me. So please refer a good book to find the deveopment procedures to master Infopath with workflow integration. it is quite urgent. Thanks Gomathi Sha   sharepoint development

Which of the two design patterns should be used in a 3-tier Asp.Net application?

  

I'm trying to decide which of the two factory patterns I should use in my Asp.Net applications:


1 : All DAL providers derive from same abstract base class DepartmentsProvider, which defines public interface of the class ( all the necessary CRUD methods for which derived classes  (providers ) provide a concrete implementation ).  BLL layer instantiates correct provider by calling DepartmentsProvider.Instance:

   

    public abstract class DepartmentsProvider
    {
       static private DepartmentsProvider _instance = null;
       /// <summary>
       /// Returns an instance of the provider type specified in the config file
       /// </summary>
       static public DepartmentsProvider Instance
       {
           get
           {
               if (_instance == null)
                   _instance = (DepartmentsProvider)Activator.CreateInstance(
                      Type.GetType(Settings.Departments.ProviderType));
               return _instance;
           }
       }

       public abstract List<Department> GetDepartments ();
       }
       /// Concrete provider
       public class SqlDepartmentsProvider : DepartmentsProvider
       {
           public override List<Department> GetDepartments()
           {
               using (SqlConnection cn = new

VB WCF Workflow Service Application - WcfTestClient.exe different to C# in VS2010

  

G'day,

I was following the simple introduction to WWF at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/ff802403.aspx and I've noticed that a new C# WCF Workflow Service Application project created will then compile and run WcfTestClient.exe.  If I create the VB Version of that same project I get a Browser web page, not the WCF client. Is this a bug in the VS2010 VB bits?  How do I change the project to correctly execute WcfTestClient.exe manually in my VB Project?

Passing parameters of type List<> from a web application to the Receive activity of a workflow servi

  

Hello,

I have a Recieve activity with the following parameters in the Content property.  Using generic parameter names here:

- parameter1 of type Object1 assigned to Parameter1 variable

- parameter2 of type List<Object2> assigned to Parameter2 variable.  Note - default value of Parameter2 variable = New List(Of Object2)()

- parameter3 of type Object3 assigned to Parameter3 variable

In my web application, I create a service reference and create a client as such:

 

SomeWFServiceClient client = null
;

try

{
 client = new
 SomeWFServiceClient();
 List<Object2> listOfObject2 = new
 List<Object2> { new
 Object2 {Id=1, Name="SomeName"
, Type="Customer"
 }, };

client.ProcessSomething(Object1, listOfObject2, Object3);
}
catch

{
}
finally

{
 client.Close();
}
I have a breakpoint at the Receive activity.  When I look at the values that get assigned to the Receive activity parameters, I see that parameter1 and parameter3 ge

use the default sql services in a console sequential workflow application

  

Hello all,

I have configured my console workflow application to use the default sql service. However, when I run it in VS2008, it generates a TypeLoadException:

"Can not load type "System.Workflow.Runtime.Hosting from assembly System.Workflow.Runtime, Version=3.0.0000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=xxx"

So, my concern is

  1. How to configure a workflow application to use the default sql service?
  2. Are there any requirements for SQL version? Is there any settings we need to configure in SQL server?

Some tips

  1. my current app.config file looks like this:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    <configuration>
     <config

How to design a form to respond to a workflow status of a Custom worklow (not OOB workflow)

  

The following article describes how to change view of a browser enabled InfoPath form based on the current status of a workflow: Design a form to respond to a workflow status
The article uses an Out-of-the-box (OOB) workflow and its workflow column.

But, I have created a custom workflow using SharePoint Designer (SPD) and according to the some responses to my following post, , the workflow column in a custom workflow cannot be modified to display the values “Approved”, “Rejected” etc.

How can I then change the views of a browser enabled InfoPath form based on the current status of a workflow. I want to display the form as follows:

  1. Make it read only once it has been submitted.
  2. Make it Green once it has been approved
  3. Make it Red if it was rejected

Thanks……..
