Working with a Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation 4.0 (WF) Program

by Andrew Zhu | September 2010 | .NET Architecture & Analysis Enterprise Articles Microsoft

WF4 is a process engine, as well as a visual program language, shipped along with Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0. Traditionally, when we design a long-running application, we break a large application into lots of small code blocks to address the business logic and use a database to store the intermediate data. With the growing complexity of logic, managing code blocks and authoring logic workflows becomes difficult. Now, with WF4, we can design and create distributed, long-running programs easily.

This article by Andrew Zhu, author of Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation 4 cookbook, provides recipes that will help us understand basic information about WF4 programming like:

  • Creating the first WF program: HelloWorkflow
  • Creating a WF program with C# code
  • Initializing a WF program with InArguments
  • Creating a WF program with OutArgument
  • Creating a WF Program with InOutArgument
  • Using variable in WF program
  • Running a WF program asynchronously
  • Customizing a MyReadLine activity with bookmark
  • Converting WF program instance to XAML
  • Loading up a WF program from a XAML file

Code Analysis and Debugging Tools in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009

by David A. Studebaker | September 2010 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

In the previous article, Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Development Tools, we gained an overall view of NAV as an application software system.

The goal of this article by David Studebaker, author of Programming Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009, is to learn about many of the debugging tools and techniques available to the NAV developer. As it has been pointed out, "Without programmers, there are no bugs." As we are all developers and therefore a primary source of bugs, we need to be knowledgeable about the tools we can use to stamp out those bugs. Fortunately, NAV has a good arsenal of such tools.
