How to share a single workflow instance across diff pages of asp.net application..?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :JavaScript/VBScript


I am using WWF 3.0 with ASP.Net application with two pages of form submission and approval.

The submission form instantiates, starts the workflow and completes half part of the workflow. In the approval page the suspended workflow has to be resumed to get completed(throught HandleExternalEvent Activity). In this case how i can use the same workflow instance between two different aspx pages..?

Dynamically get the current instance of the workflow within a re-hosted WPF application



the scenario is: I create a re-hosted WPF application for the workflow designer, and within this designer I can edit the workflow(sequence, flowchart) with pre-defined and custom activities. The question is, how can I programmatically get an instance of the current workflow. Thereafter I can do some manipulations on this instance.



Single instance of workflow for a parameter



I'm a newby to WF fnd have a question which I haven't found an answer for:

I've got a WCF workflow service which is invoked by receive activity with a parameter (saleId). My workflow is a long running workflow and I want only a single instance of a workflow to be running for the saleId.

I tried to implement it with correlation mechanisms, however I receive an exception, when starting the secong workflow with the same parameter The execution of an InstancePersistenceCommand was interrupted by a key collision. The instance key with value '{Unique ID}' could not be associated to the instance because it is already associated to a different instance.

And after this exception the execution of the first workflow stops together with the second one.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 1 of 2

In this first part of the two part series, Steven covers the differences between Site and Application pages in SharePoint 2007, why each may be used in various circumstances, and prepares for the construction of a menu located application page. After a brief introduction he examines the concept of Site Pages and Application Pages separately in detail with supported screenshots.

SharePoint Application and Site Pages - Part 2 of 2

As the second article in a two part series, Steven examines the attributes and details of a SharePoint 2007 application page, including the construction and feature deployment of the same page based project. Since this is a WSS level objective, as opposed to MOSS, you will not need MOSS to work with the code included in this project. Windows Server 2003, WSS, and Visual Studio 2005 are all that is needed, with no additional add-ons. He provides a detailed analysis of each step involved in the creation and deployment of the project.

Application Vs. Content Pages in SharePoint

SharePoint has two types of ASPX pages. One type is the application page, also known as a _layout page. The other type of ASPX page is a content page, also known as a site page. Each of these page types is stored in a different location in SharePoint. When developers create custom ASPX pages, they must decide on the page type.

How to create WSP or Package for workflow in Share Point 2007?



I am working on SharePoint 2007. I have created 2 List called "Config List" (this is a list) and "Vacation Form" (this is form library & form designed in infopath). I have also created a workflow on form library "Vacation Form" in Share Point Designer 2007.

With the use of this workflow I am creating some task and updating "Vacation Form".

Now I want to deploy these three thing (Config List, Vacation Form & workflow) on other server.

How do I create a package or WSP file to install these things on different server.

Multiple domains in single asp.net mvc application




I want to use my asp.net mvc application with multiple domains (maybe of hundreds),

so I have created custom Route class that matches requests including domain.

Each domain could has different routes, so the number of routes in RouteTable can be huge

(eg 500 domains, each 20 routes = 10000 routes in RouteTable).

I am considering how it will be efficient?


I have an idea to replace RouteTable.Routes (of type RouteCollection)

with custom one (of type Dictionary<string, RouteCollection>).

But how I can override default route matching mechanism with my custom mechanism which will be two step:

1) retrieve RouteCollection from dictionary based on domain name

2) retrieve specyfic Route object (standard route matching mechanism)

How can I do this?


Maybe someone has better idea for solving this problem?


Thanks in advance


Can I dehydrate the Workflow object as well as the instance?

Hiya All Can I dehydrate the workflow object (i.e. not an instanciation of it) into SQLServer?  I want to save all versions created of a workflow so that I can chose to instanciate the workflow from any of the previous versions if I need to. This is due to a compliancy issue - being able to reconstruct the data created by a previous version of a workflow to prove accuracy. ThanksMichelle x

Is there a way to check if workflow instance already exists for a particular productID in Workflow o

I am using Visual Studio 2008 and .NET 3.5. I am trying to build a WF that is exposed as WCF hosted on IIS. This service is consumed by ASP.NET client. It is a very simple WF- receive info for new product "A"- send email to person 'Xyz' that new prodcut "A" is received- do some business process for product "A"- send out more notifications for product "A"Consider this scenario - - Client hits submit on asp.net page for prodcut "A"- new WF instance is created for product "A"- client can go back to the same page, edit some more info and hit save again. However, this time or for any subsequent "Saves",  I do not want to create a new WF instance for product "A".I can check to see if a WF instance exists for product "A" on the client side before calling the service operation. However, I want to see if there is a way to do this in WF or WorkflowServiceHost, as I don't want to add this logic to client. First acitvity in WF has to be receive activity with CanCreateInstance = true, so not sure how I can do this check in WF itself.Also, I have another stupid question, when using WF exposed as WCF service, do we have to implement all service operations using WF? What if I have some service operations that just involves checking some business logic? Do I implement this in a

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

Share Point Designer 2007 Workflow (Sequential) - multi-collect data from user

I am currently building a multi-step workflow using ShrePoint designer for MOSS2007. I am getting a bit confused as to if I have an error or if I am doing something incorrect. Here is what I have going. My workflow consists of something similar to the following New document comes in, a collect data from user routine is ran and assigned to a reviewer. My understanding when I create a collect data from user WorkFlow step is any data I request is saved in the "Tasks" list. Therefore I need to grab the workflow task ID in order to later lookup what the reviewer submitted... I understand this...   However, I have one more collect data from user workflow step and I have one more item to collect. Even though this is a brand new collect data from user workflow step - does the collected data still go into the "Tasks" list? In other words, if I have two steps in a workflow and both of these steps are "collect data from user", does the data from both steps go into the same "Tasks" list?  I could see how this might be possible as long as the Task list columns contain all the items for all the different "collect" data from user steps.  I don't see two different Tasks lists representing or named "Reviewer" or "Final" or anything, so I assume the items are all in "Tasks"   However..

Developing common content pages that can be hosted at the Web application or TLS level and can be sh

We are working on a Publishing site and planning to provision each client as a sub-site under the top level site (TLS). All of these sub-sites will almost have the same web pages and based on the client specific requirement they can customize these pages if needed. To meet the above requirement: I want to develop common content pages or application pages with the publishing capabilities and host them at the TLS, making these common pages available for all sub-sites under the TLS with the following requirements. ·        Sub-sites will not have any of these pages on their own and there would be only one central copy of this common page at TLS. ·        The sub-sites should be able to access these common pages in their context that means using the sub-site specific Master page & Themes. ·        When there is a specific customization is required such as adding a different web part, or updating the HTML data on the page, the common page will be edited in the sub-site and eventually making its own copy of the common page and resulting breaking apart from the common page for any future changes. ·        When the user edits the page he should be alerted that customizing this common page will make a local copy an
