This chapter covered two powerful features of Windows Workflow Foundation: dynamic update and designer re-hosting. Dynamic update enables you to make modifications to running workflows using the APIs provided. It is important to note that changes made using dynamic update apply only to specific workflow instances and not to the workflow definition itself.
Designer re-hosting is another great feature that expands the possibilities for incorporating workflow into applications. By using the designer, you can provide features such as editing and creating workflow definitions, viewing the status of in-process and completed workflows, and even modifying running workflows.
