Tools for Extending the Workflow Model


In a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 context, there are two development tools available for using and extending the workflow model. These are the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Designer for Windows Workflow Foundation and Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007. Visual Studio 2005 Designer for Windows Workflow Foundation is a Visual Studio add-in; SharePoint Designer 2007 is a stand-alone application that is a successor of Microsoft FrontPage 2003. Refer to Chapter 27, "Using Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007 with Microsoft SharePoint Services 3.0," to find detailed information about using SharePoint Designer 2007.

Note 

As an administrator, you probably will never work directly with Visual Studio 2005 to create workflows. Depending on your role, if you also act as a SharePoint site administrator, you are likely to use SharePoint Designer 2007 to create workflows.

The difference between Visual Studio 2005 Designer and SharePoint Designer 2007 is discussed extensively in this chapter in the "Comparing SharePoint Designer 2007 and Visual Studio 2005 Designer" section. You will learn the ins and outs of creating workflows using SharePoint Designer 2007. You will also learn how to extend existing SharePoint workflows and how to deploy workflows created using Visual Studio 2005.
