we did many large scale projetcs for international customers. Most of them use ORACLE in their database infrastructure. Hence our product must be able to use ORACLE as database backend. We are now working on extending our
product in order to enable our customers creating, managing and running business processes. We would love to have this based on Workflow Foundation 4.0.
Unfortunately Microsoft offers only interfaces that we would have to implement for using an ORACLE database backend. We think that the implementation of these interfaces should be a product on its own -- done in professional development
and providing professional support. In my opinion the acceptance of WF will depend highly on being able to support ORACLE custumers. No offense considering SQL Server, but most of our large scale customers will never agree to use a database
infrastructure other than ORACLE.
Are there any plans to provide an implementation of these interfaces for ORACLE as a product by Microsoft or another vendor?
My question is about automatic resuming/hydrating persisted workflows that are hosted in IIS7.
Is that impossible to achieve out-of-the-box without installing AppFabric (I have not succeeded)?
Some people have said that AppFabric is required, but then, how is it possible that IIS7 alone cannot handle the resuming of persisted workflows, while it works perfectly using the VS2010 Development Web Server/Cassini? Does the VS Dev server have builtin
AppFabric-logic or what?
I have seen some discussions touching this topic, but never got any clear answers.

I would like to customize the yet to be released ASP.NET 4 Session Providers for AppFabric Caching which supports ItemLevel staorage of Session Objects of instead of a whole Session object as a BLOB.
How can i customize this session provider or extend it .
thanks for your reply
I have a workflow service (xamlx) which implements some complex business process (with persistence and correlation). This service is hosted in IIS and I use AppFabric to control workflow instanses (Terminate them or Cancel).
Now I need to allow users, who don't have administrative rights and, hence, access to AppFabric to stop workflows (Terminate) if they make mistakes while invoking it and restart the workflow.
Is it possible to implement the same logic as it is used in AppFabric with C# code (I plan to create a web service with the help of which it would be possible to terminate workflows)
Thanks in advance!
