SQL workflow and Exchange Workflow

SQL workflow and Exchange Workflow

Post by brentwi » Wed, 02 Jul 2003 05:47:54



The question of differences between SQL Workflow and Exchange Workflow is very loaded. The easy way to explain it is in 2 parts... The first
of which is the datastore. SQL Workflow obviously works against a SQL databases/tables (and SPTS). Exchange workflow works against
Exchange public folders (and SPPS). The second part is the workflow behind it. SQL Workflow is more or state-based and Exchange
workflow is more or less action-based. I recommend reading the following articles:

1. CRM 3.0 Workflow- How to stop Processing all workflow rules

2. Windows Workflow Foundation (Shared Workflows)

Hi,

Sorry for my bad english.

I want to build application with wwf but i don't understand how i doing this
with wwf.

I want to build client application connects sql server and read/write data.
Client app runs any computer at the same time.
For example.
First person opens client app, runs any workflow, complete a few steps in
workflow and its work completed. But workflow is not completed because
workflow is continue. Second person saw this workflows situation and
completes a few steps in workflow and its work is completed. Third person saw
this workflows situation and completes a few steps and its work is completed.
Then workflow is completed. But this three person is located different
locations.
In this scenario, how i create shared workflows? how i alert clients when
workflow completes a few steps?

I create client app and create workflow with persistance. Then open three
client app instance. First client runs workflow and complete a few steps but
other clients always shows workflows last situation. It's not refresh.
