You can get them from here (VS) and here (.NET). I”m reading what”s new on Brad Abrams post and I”m really digging the new features:,,) For instance, having the format option working with JS code is simply cool! Another cool thing: the ScriptManager is able to combine scripts so there”s really no need for using the ToolkitScriptManager for that:)

Btw, i”m still going through the complete list but it really looks like we”re gonna gave lots of new stuff 🙂

What does WF really give you?

Posted in WF       Comments Off on What does WF really give you?

As you know, I”ve started taking a look at WF. Though in the last two weeks I”ve had to put it aside (and that will continue to happen until the next week is over), I must say that I”ve seen enough to give my opinion about it. So, what does it gives you?

no, no… that crap about sequential vs state machine workflows…forget it…  well, they”re not really crap, but they”re mere distractions that might turn your attention from the important stuff…I mean, what does it give you that? Want my opinion? So here”s what i think:

  • it gives me an easy way to decompose my program in small steps
  • these steps can be decoupled from the main thread (which is good for getting scallable solutions)
  • it lets me serialize my program when i want or when it”s idle (a process which is normally called passivation)
  • i can extend it easilly by creating new “types” of steps
  • oh, and yeah, the built-in steps (oops, I mean activities), look really cool too :,,)

Not to bad, right? what do you think about it?
