Hi All,

Since the release of .NET 3.0 I have not been able to find an ASP.NET Workflow sample that was not actually written for one of the betas.  Many of the examples out there that come up in the search engines have implementations that seem inconsistent with the final release of WF.

The SDK does not include anything close to a complete ASP.NET workflow sample.

The free Microsoft Learning module did not cover it anywhere near complete.

So, what I am looking for is a clean, complete, post-beta example of how to use workflow in an ASP.NET application, not a web service, just a plain old ASP.NET workflow example. 

Any links to a good post-beta sample or walk-through

Thanks

Update: I did find a webcast that includes a simple hello world asp.net workflow. Unfortunately, there is no source code available for download.

I have the same issue!

All the ASP.Net Samples are of the "Hello World" nature...and furthermore, each seem to have similar yet different Interface implementations. The documention with the Latest Window Vista SDK is NOT very useful in itself. It just lists what each of the WF Classes & Methods does but not how to use them in conjunction with other Classes And Methods in a Real Web Application!

I guess we just have to wait until it get used more and people "step up to the plate" and provide Enterprise Level Example.

Not the Ominous WriteLine("Hello World") in a Console App!!!

We know about those Samples. They are over 6 months old in most cases.

I have an entire chapter devoted to ASP.NET in the book I wrote on WF: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470053860/ref=pd_rvi_gw_2/103-6791968-8088645 ie=UTF8.

Todd,

I much appreciated finding your sample at http://www.devx.com/dotnet/Article/29992. Is it up to date with the final .NET 3.0 release

Those are the official samples and to the best of my knowledge ,I haven't run all of them, they are all up to date with the released product. There are lots of other samples, like for example at http://wf.netfx3.com but the quality and age vary hugely.

kmg,

Sorry, the code in that article is extremely out of date (over a year old!). It was written in beta 1 bits and I have not gone back to update it...

Tom Lake - MSFT

All the ASP.NET sample found here work with V1 RTM of WF.

Tom,

THANKS!

The first real problem I ran into was how statemachine flow, communications, and persistence requirements go with almost any significant application.

These samples are right on and a solid start for some substantial ASP.NET workflow samples.

It would be nice! But the book is not for sale until March 2007

At least not in Canada
