Category Description

A set of basic workflow activities grouped by sub-categories:

  • Collection: used to work with collection objects in a workflow;
  • Control flow: includes procedural activities and provide a mechanism to model sequential control flow using concepts you know from standard procedural languages like C# or VB like if, assign, while, etc. Such activities include the basic building blocks to represent sequential behavior
  • Flowchart: an intuitive paradigm to visually represent business processes;
  • Error handling: activities implementing error handling (exceptions) and recovery;
  • Messaging: allow workflows to send and receive messages;
  • Primitives: activities that provide a convenient mechanism for performing common tasks;
  • Runtime: activities for accessing the features of the workflow runtime, such as persistence and termination;
  • Transaction:  activities for modeling transactions, compensation, and cancellation. These programming models allow the workflow to continue forward progress in the event of changes in business logic and error handling. 
  • etc.
