Should Workflow application hosted in WF Manager return data or return service URI that provides the data from database RRS feed

  • Question

  • In evaluation phase it is understood that

    1. Windows workflow manager is the HOST (Multi-Tenent) for workflow applications by exposing WF apps as REST services.
    2. Using WF Manager client class client applications can invoke the workflows that are hosted in WF Manager

    In enterprise applications is it correct to say that "Workflow application is responsible to execute automated business logic and provide a web service URI that can provide data to the end user"?

    I think that WF application is NOT responsible to retrieve data from a web service(either WCF or ASP.NET Web API) and return to the client. In other words 'WF application should NOT return data by invoking another web service that provides data, WF application responsible to only execute workflow activities and return the data service uri'.

    Help appreciated.
