What I like about this book is that by providing simple examples, you can play with the what if without having to disect the whole project just to see what how the one thing worked. He also does a good job a building up the concepts as you move through the various parts of a chapter. This is one of those books that you should code while you read, and not just read and come back to.
While one may find all of the examples somehwere on the net or at MS, this keeps all of them in one place with the explanations in one place for easy reference. This is particularly usefull when you need to go back for a quick refresher on a particular topic.
Most examples on the Web are code or declarative but don't tell you much about the designer. This book has both. If you are looking for a quick start on the WF4 designer, this may have your answers. This was published before the State Machine tools were released, so it does not have any state machine examples.
If you are looking for in-depth technical details, this is probably not for you. But if you are under pressure to get a project off the ground, this will get you there. The technical details will come as you understand the mechanisms involved.
One review mentioned that the figures are missing from the Kindle version. That is not true. All the images are present on mine. Very pleased with this book.
The book nicely builds on the readers knowledge starting with building basic workflows and then moves into more complex workflows, including using WCF, transactions and building their own custom workflow Activities. The author finishes up with details on how to deploy the workflows and build a custom designer.
Whilst building custom activities the author takes the reader further through creating their own Activity Designer. The activity Designer allows end users to interact with the workflow activity as though it was an existing out-of-the-box activity in an intuitive way.
One of the best chapters is the final chapter on creating a custom workflow designer. The author builds on each example in this chapter to develop with the reader a fully functioning Custom Workflow designer. This designer can then be integrated into the readers existing solutions and allow end users to modify the workflows in a familiar non Visual Studio Environment. The author also shows how visual tracking can be enabled, which allows end users to see what step in the workflow is currently executing.
Don't let the small examples fool you, each one delivers something new and builds on the readers knowledge, allowing the reader to have a broad understanding of what is trying to be achieved without getting bogged down in boiler plate code.
This book is definitely aimed at a reader with no or very little Windows Workflow experience, but certainly by the end of the book the reader will have a lot of experience and be able to design and develop their own Workflow.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone starting out or just wanting to get a feel for the capabilities of Windows workflow and what can be done with it. I will keep on coming back to this book to remind myself of concepts.
The typical scenario goes something like the following:
1) One short paragraph describing the item
2) Two to three pages of screen shots showing the items as they appear after dragging them onto the workflow designer
3) Two to three pages of code dumps with comments that are so basic that they add little to nothing to the example
Repeat this 70+ times and you have this book.
As I read through this book, I was desperately looking for something to find that was useful/helpful. Unfortunately, I cannot honestly recommend this book. The book by Bukovics is MUCH better and is only a couple of dollars more on Amazon. That book offers actual explanations as to how things fit together and good examples of how to actually consume the functionality provided out of the box as well as provide a code framework that you can immediately use in your applications.
Bottom line: this book has value, but it sits around $2-$5, not the $50 that it's price tag states. Save your money and look on MSDN for tutorials and Bukovics' book for more in-depth insight into WF.
