Windows Workflow Foundation

WWF is going to be the worflow engine for windows. It basically allows you to declarativly stitch together application logic into worflows. Not only does it support your typical ‘Biztalk style’ sequential workflow types but it also allows you to build state machine type workflows. You can either write them in code or…. wait for it….. you can declare them in XAML (though it’s called XOML in the current drop). What this means is you could potentially stictch together a whole application out of components in just XML. Avalon would form the UI and WWF could be used to provide a state based execution engine. Slap a nice GUI UI around it and you’ve got a high productivity app builder that any old BA can use.

 

I wonder if the likes of K2 have a future?

A link to a good article explaining the relationship between SourceCode and WWF.
