Query Regarding WWF RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Friends,

    I have small requirement to implement the workflow for my application, which will have a (Request, View, and Approval).  We are planning to use WWF for this requirement.

    Is it a good thing to use this kind of small requirement?

    What are the things we need to consider while deployment?

    Because of this do we get any performance improvement?

    Your suggestion is very much appreciated

  • Greetings,

    Yes you can use workflow for excuting seqeunce of events(here use state machine workflow). You can use state machine workflow since it requires human interaction for approval for a particular workflow application.

    Defintion
    • State machine workflows are designed to work in event-driven scenarios. A state machine workflow contains two or more states, with one state being the active state at any given time.

  • Hello Janith
    You can use Windows Workflow for this scenario.
    If you are open to use .Net 4.0 which is currently in beta then there are several advancements with 4.0 WF which helps you persist information through out of the box persist activity, as well have try..catch to support exception management, XAML based designer to do designs in XAMLX and helps expose workflows as services.

    Dublin (application server) product from MS is due to release in a few months provides a standard host for WCF and WF and relieves you from lot of management, monitoring, scaling, persisting and deployment concerns that otherwise you would have to provision without Dublin.
