Accept an image, prepare a cover sheet, send it to a fax machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have this project which I am trying to design. Here is what is needed:

    1. Clients send a picture (stream of bytes) and a member identifier

    2. Client can be desktop based / mobile, tablet based.

    3. The picture needs to be sent to a fax machine for printing

    4. And a metadata word document needs to be created on the fly (with the member's details) which will serve as the cover sheet for the fax.

    I want to make it a SOA-based application. Does my requirement qualify to be made as a workflow service?

    Service accepting bytes[] and memberid and within that have activities to fetch data, create a coversheet doc, attach it to the image, send it to fax machine?

    Please advice. Thanks!

  • HI,

    Welcome to WorkFlow forum.

    For SOA-based application, we need understand the relationship of BPM, SOA, orchestration and choreography to workflow first. At the time it's also recommanded to learn the WorkFLow and process in SOA app.

    For detailed information: Workflow and Process in SOA
