Simple In-Memory Sample

Download sample

This sample demonstrates how to compile and run a workflow code file (in C# or Visual Basic) at run time.

The sample includes a file that defines a workflow (SequentialWorkflow.cs or SequentialWorkflow.vb), but the application does not access the workflow class directly; instead, it passes the file names of the workflow code files to a WorkflowCompiler object and retrieves the workflow instance type from the CompiledAssembly property of the WorkflowResults object. The retrieved workflow instance type is then passed to the CreateWorkflow method of WorkflowRuntime, and the resulting instance is started normally.

The workflow used for this sample is the same workflow that is presented in the Simple Sequential Workflow sample. See the Simple Sequential Workflow Sample for more information.
