WWF in Azure

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


Im building a Azure service and im considering the WFF infrastructure.

im new to WWF so i have some questions regarding the usage.

1. does WWF is available for Azure services? (I think the answer is yes since you can run WWf on any machine - but i need to check)

2. I need to build a fairly simple service:

    the service contain few different action sequences (we call then workflow).

    when a user send a request to the service (an ASP.NET application), the service first check the configuration to decide which of the different workflows this user       should execute. once the workflow is found the service starts to execute the specific workflow. each workflow is a set of web pages and the user MUST go throught each of the pages before he can reach his destination a special web page which is the common endpoint to all workflows. one important aspect of this application is that it should be secure. I really couldnt find any details on WWF security.

According to what I read this looks like a perfect application for WWF but I wanted to get a second opinion from a more WWF experienced developer.

Preparation of local Development Environment for Windows AZURE

  The Windows Azure is the cloud services platform provided by Microsoft through Microsoft data centers. Windows Azure enables the developers to create applications running in the cloud by using Microsoft Visual Studio development environment and the Microsoft .NET Framework. In this article I am speaking about setting up a development environment that allows you to develop applications for cloud using visual studio and windows azure SDK. Prerequisites This article assumes that you already installed Visual studio 2010 and .Net framework 4 and SQL Server(Express editions of 2005 or 2008). Also you need windows vista sp1 or higher, windows 7, windows server 2008 as the OS for the development environment. This article has uses windows 7 to setup the environment. Enable IIS 7 on windows 7 You need to enable IIS 7 with ASP.Net. The steps to configure IIS 7 is as follows Navigate to start -> Control Panel ->Programs and Features. Select "Turn Windows Features On or Off". Under Internet Information Services, expand World Wide Web Services. Under Application Development Features, select ASP.NET. Under Common HTTP Features, select Static Content, the screen will look similar to the following Click OK to Install the selected features. Download windows Azure SDK You can download the windows azure SDK from msdn. Follow the link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib

Anyone migrated their app to Windows/SQL Azure?

Hi,Has anyone migrated their ASP.NET app that uses Membership to the cloud? If so, did you have any issues with generating scripts for SQL Azure?Here's a detailed explanation of the issues I've had:The first issue was this: In my database, in one of the tables, I use the new -- actually not so new anymore -- HierarchyID datatype. When I tried to generate scripts for my database objects, SSMS gave me an error telling me that SQL Azure did not support HierarchyIDs. I then opened up a ticket w/ MS Online Support Team. They told me that SQL Azure now supports HierarchyID but the SSMS was released before the SQL Azure update which seems to be pretty recent. Therefore, SSMS is not aware of SQL Azure support for HierarchyID.Then we decided to use the "SQL Azure Migration Wizard v3.3.6" which is an open source app. Then we ran into the second issue: The wizard was skipping some of the stored procedures used by Membership because SQL Azure did not support some of the underlying objects. Here's one of the errors I got from the wizard:StoredProcedure [dbo].[aspnet_Setup_RemoveAllRoleMembers] -- sp_droprole is not supported in current version of SQL AzureI'm sure I'm not the first person who's migrating his ASP.NET app that relies on Membership to the cloud. I wanted to see how others handled these issues -- or even had these issues in the first place.

Caching in WCF Data Services on Azure

I want to enable output caching in my OData service on Azure but I can't get it to work. It doesn't even have to be Velocity or any other distributed caching provider. I just want simple output caching. It can be as simple as the one Scott is talking about over here. I haven't got that example to work though and it seems that other ppl commenting on his article have the same problem as me: getting fresh data all the time. Please guide me
