Release Notes

Changes in this release;

  • Fixed defect in release 1.2.1.1 - Merged dependencies so that clients only need to reference one assembly

Supported work-flow patterns
  • Sequence
  • Parallel split
  • Simple merge (of Parallel split)
  • Exclusive choice
  • Looping constructs (Retry)

Framework Features
  • Generic interface for concise workflow registration
  • Operations that inherit from BasicOperation<T> can be attempted a specified number of times
  • An interval of minutes, seconds or milliseconds can be specified for retry attempts
  • Workflows can be composed of worklows
  • The assemblies have been signed
  • Support for multi-threaded execution.
  • Fluent interface for simple Parallel scenarios - using the Do(x).And.Do(y).Then().Do(z) completion syntax
  • Simple merge (Then) from parallel to sequential execution - waits for all parallel operations to complete.
  • Static helper method to create work-flow objects I.e. Workflow<string>.Definition()
  • Pipeline<T> changed to Workflow<T>
  • Corrected capitalisation in IWorkFlow as IWorkflow
  • IWorkflow.Execute() renamed to IWorkflow.Run() for brevity.
  • Renamed the constraint helper class, When, to If

Notes
Workflows can only contain workflows of the same generic type.

Installation
Extract the files into a seperate folder and add a reference to your Visual Studio project.

Requirements
.Net framework 3.5

Created a POC and seems to work perfectly. Very discoverable easy to understand syntax and seems to be exactly what I was looking for (a simple workflow engine for chaining batch tasks in different ways).
