What have you learned in this chapter? First, job chaining can be done with the Quartz framework. You can use either of the presented approaches, but the approach without the listener implementation probably will give you fewer headaches. The other lesson I hope you take away is that job chaining is not workflow. It might seem like workflow, and you might not be convinced of this yet, but go back through the examples and try to build one of your own. Be sure to read the OSWorkflow documentation and find out about the features that we didn't mention. You should see that workflow is much more than Job chaining.

Finally, you should have learned that using OSWorkflow with Quartz is really pretty easy. All it takes is a few binaries, a few configuration files, and some workflow functions. Tie all that together with a workflow definition file, and off you go. Before you know it, you will have built a library of reusable functions and a bunch of workflows to run your business. Pretty soon, you'll have a nice little application that you can be proud of.
