WorkFlow Host Service Deployment Requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are currently developping a WebApplication consuming a WorkFlow. So we have created a "WCF Workflow Service Application" project for the WebApplication. We have added another Class library as code activities and introduced within the workflow.

    Now that every thing is working in my development box, now i need to deploy to the client's box. I've tried to do the "Publish" command from the VisualStudio to get the runtime files. Am aware of the steps for the web applications, but not aware of the WorkFlow deployment checklist.

    Thanks for reading.

  • The WCF Workflow Service Application is really just another kind of a Web Application.  Publish should work the same for this kind of app as it does for any web app.

  • Hi,

    ->"My interest of this thread is towards understand the minimum requirements for WFHostService, things like EndPoints reference at Web.Config or any other nittygritty stuff"

    According to my experience. you can host a WF4 service in IIS7 installed with .NET Framework 4.0.

    The deploment process is also simple.
    1. Create a Web Application in IIS7
    2. Map the physical path to the WF4 service project folder.

    Then, WF4 workflow works.

    If you want to know more about WF4, MSDN is the best place:

  • Yes, we did that too. But we are able to see the WSDL after hosting and when we execute the operation it is not executing the operation contract. Hence we thought it is the problem with the Hosting.
