MSDN Webcast: Using Windows Workflow Foundation to Build Services With Jon Flanders (Level 300)
Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) is a programming model, set of tools, and runtime environment which allows to write declarative and reactive programs for Windows operating systems. WF is part of the Microsoft .NET Runtime, and it first appeared in Microsoft .NET 3.0. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is also a programming model, set of tools, and a runtime that first appeared in .NET 3.0. WCF is a framework for building applications that can communicate with each other over varied network protocols. In .NET 3.5, these programming models came closer together to allow easy integration, including allowing WF instances to use WCF to communicate to remote endpoints and allowing WF instances to become the service implementation for WCF endpoints.
