Tutorial: Create a Workflow Service

.NET Framework 3.5

Workflow services are Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services authored as workflows using Windows Workflow Foundation (WF). Using the WF framework enables these services to be durable, be long-running, and inherit other existing WF functionality.

This tutorial shows you how to create a workflow service that combines various aspects of WF and WCF into one service. The first exercise shows you how to use Visual Studio to create a basic state-machine workflow service. The next exercises use that same service and build on it by adding new functionality such as claim-based authorization and local host communication.
