SPD Workflows Best Practice

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

Using Wss3.0 is it best to have multiple short SPD workflows or 1 or 2 big complicated workflows. I have 7 different small workflows that will occasionaly error out with generic error, if i rerun that same workflow individually when the other 6 are not being triggered it works fine. Are my workflows colliding when trying to make updates to the same list item or just a fluke....should I spend the time combining the 7 into 1 or 2 workflows? Thanks for your feedback

Patterns in Practice: Incremental Delivery Through Continuous Design


The end goal of software projects is to deliver value to the customer. Software design is a major factor in how successfully a team can deliver that value. The best designs are a product of continuous design rather than the result of an effort that tries to get the entire design right up front. This approach lets you strive to apply lessons learned from the project to continuously improve the design, instead of becoming locked into an erroneous design developed too early in the project.
