Workflow? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im not sure where to post this.

    What is workflow?

    Im not sure about the term.

    I have worked with something called workflow, which executes from sql and generates a text file.

    The text file contains field names with values. These field names come from a application. And this text files records the fields which have been modified by the application. In other words, the text file logs the activity that happens in the application. This was the general idea.

    Is this called workflow or is this something else?

    Thanks.

    Workflow means how the data flows from one end to another. For example, in a database application, a simple workflow can be like

    Click the button 'Getdata' -> Call the required stored procedure -> Get all rows into DataTable -> Apply Filter -> Sort the data -> Display in DataGrid.

    I hope this helps.

  • Workflow is a term used to describe the tasks, procedural steps, organizations or people involved, required input and output information, and tools needed for each step in a business process. A workflow approach to analyzing and managing a business process can be combined with an object-oriented programming approach. 

    The Windows Workflow Foundation forums http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wfprerelease/threads is the better place for such questions

  • Thank you all for the replies.

    My question is not abusive. It's just posted in the wrong forum, because I didn't knew where to post it.
