Parallel Parallel Parallel Parallel Class

Definition

An activity that executes all child activities simultaneously and asynchronously.

Examples

The following code sample demonstrates creating a Parallel activity. This example is from the Cancellation Handler on Compensable Activity sample.

return new Parallel
{
    // Timeout from branch causes other branch to cancel.
    CompletionCondition = true,

    Branches =
    {
        // Delay Branch
        new Sequence
        {
            Activities =
            {
                new WriteLine { Text = "Branch1: Body is about to Delay 2secs transferring execution to Branch2" },
                new Delay
                {
                    Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(2)
                },
                new WriteLine { Text = "Branch1: Body is about to complete causing Branch2 to cancel.." },
            }
        },

Remarks

A Parallel activity operates by simultaneously scheduling each Activity in its Branches collection at the start. It completes when all of its Branches complete or when its CompletionCondition property evaluates to true. While all the Activity objects run asynchronously, they do not execute on separate threads, so each successive activity only executes when the previously scheduled activity completes or goes idle. If none of the child activities of this activity go idle, this activity execute in the same way that a Sequence activity does.

Constructors

Creates a new instance of the Parallel activity.

Properties

Branches Branches Branches Branches

The child elements to be executed in parallel.

CacheId CacheId CacheId CacheId

Gets the identifier of the cache that is unique within the scope of the workflow definition.

Methods

Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext) Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext) Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext) Abort(NativeActivityAbortContext)

When implemented in a derived class, takes actions in response to the activity being aborted.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata) CacheMetadata(NativeActivityMetadata)

Creates and validates a description of the activity's arguments, variables, child activities, and activity delegates.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
Cancel(NativeActivityContext) Cancel(NativeActivityContext) Cancel(NativeActivityContext) Cancel(NativeActivityContext)

When implemented in a derived class, runs logic to cause graceful early completion of the activity.

(Inherited from NativeActivity)
Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
Execute(NativeActivityContext) Execute(NativeActivityContext) Execute(NativeActivityContext) Execute(NativeActivityContext)
