Workflow Manager 1.0 Getting Started Tutorial


Updated: May 10, 2013

This tutorial provides an introduction to creating and hosting workflows using Workflow Manager 1.0. The sample in this tutorial provides an example of creating a custom activity that retrieves products from the Northwind sample database, and an example of creating a workflow that uses this activity to enumerate the returned products. It shows how to create a scope, publish the activity and the workflow to the scope, and then create a workflow client application that starts the workflow. This tutorial also provides a demo of the Workflow Explorer sample application which provides a graphical way to inspect the scopes and workflow artifacts of a Workflow Manager server.
