Simple Policy Sample

Download sample

This sample shows how to use a PolicyActivity activity in a workflow.

The sequential workflow in this sample is created by using a PolicyActivity activity. The workflow defines orderValue, customerType, and discount fields that are used to define a product discount workflow. The rules defined in the rules file set a discount value that is based on the orderValue and customerType. The orderValue and customerType are set in the SimplePolicyWorkflow class definition and can be changed to alter the behavior. The resulting discount is written to the console in the WorkflowCompleted event handler that is defined in the SimplePolicyWorkflow class.
