Can we call Workflow (WF 4.0) from a java application? RRS feed

Answers

  • You can create a WCF Workflow service application type and implement workflow in it. and then use REST based urls to bind them. Set the OperationContract to have "POST" Method.
    Start with the screencosts in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/netframework/dd733248
    They are all less than 12 minutes and stick to WF4.0 only as you may find older version video's too. If you look at them, then you are going to be in sorry state as WF 3+ and WF4 has a different architecture altogether.

  • You can just call it like any other web service.  Java Jax-WS will talk fine to a WF/WCF service.  Create the service, import the WSDL using your UI tooling (Netbeans or Eclipse) and it should work.  You have to be careful of some things in your bindings, but if you use a fairly pedestrian binding it should be fine.
