Chapter 4: Workflow Development and Visual Studio


This chapter covers the core concepts of workflow development, including the workflow infrastructure, compilation, serialization, and development modes. It also discusses the Visual Studio development environment. As a key component of the workflow development process, Visual Studio provides a rich set of tools for developing and debugging workflow-based applications.

The Composition of a Workflow

Most developers use Visual Studio to create and modify workflow applications, but it is by no means required for workflow development. Just as with C# and the .NET SDK, all you need to develop managed software is notepad.exe and csc.exe (the command-line C# compiler). Granted, most people don’t use Notepad to develop workflows, but you can use it to break down the components of the workflow infrastructure that are abstracted by Visual Studio.
