Good job.

Hi there,

I'm not entirely sure to be honest I haven't tried yet! From what I understand the entire workflow runtime model has changed for WF4.0 so I'm guessing probably not... I may look into rewriting for .NET 4.0 once it goes to a more stable release (maybe beta 2).

Cheers,

Dean

Hey Dean,

The last release of this was about 3 years back. Now that .NET 4.0 is released, is there any new releases planned?

Also, in your view, are there any other options/libraries which can be used to make WF work with Oracle?

Hi Raghu,

I've no plans myself to release anything just yet. We're just ramping up our .NET 4.0 plans here at work so depending on when I can get a good look at the new WF 4.0 bits I'll have to wait on making a concrete decision. Unfortunately it's not my day job and I'm under a lot of load here right now, so no promises!

In terms of other providers for Oracle, I'm a little surprised that nobody has come out with a commercial product but, so far as I'm aware, WFTools is the only thing about... It's certainly in a usable enough state for persistence. Tracking I'm not as happy with, but it does the basics. Don't get me wrong it still has a fair way to go to be fully production ready; there are aspects of the pessimistic locking that I'm not happy with right now and the logging mechanism sucks. It also needs testing under a much heavier load than I could generate on my lowly laptop of the time!

Feel free to take what's there and pull it apart - there's no reason one couldn't go with taking the stored procs and just writing the bare minimum required to interface with WF. There's a lot of abstraction in there right now to deal with different platforms (Oracle, MySql, etc.) that could be ripped away.

Give me a shout if you have any further questions!

Cheers,

Dean
