Part IV: Intermediate and Advanced Features > Learning Advanced Hosting

Hour 17. Learning Advanced Hosting

What You’ll Learn in This Hour:

  • Workflow events

  • Runtime services

  • ManualWorkflowSchedulerService and threading

  • InvokeWorkflow activity

  • Host retention with the InvokeWorkflow activity

  • InvokeWorkflow activity synchronous augmentation

WF is not a server product. The WorkflowRuntime type can be hosted in any .NET 2.0 or later Windows application. Host applications communicate with the WorkflowRuntime through a set of events it exposes. The WorkflowRuntime’s capabilities are defined via pluggable runtime services. The pluggable runtime services are managed through a set of WorkflowRuntime methods. There is also a WorkflowInstance type that operates on a one-to-one basis with a workflow instance. It is, however, primarily a helper object that works through the workflow runtime.
