Microsoft architects working on next-generation programming models introduce the Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), a general-purpose framework for creating reactive programs, i.e., ones that act in response to stimuli from external entities. In deconstructing WF, Shukla and Schmidt explain its core concepts: activities (domain-specific program statements), activity execution, and the activity automaton (which describes the lifecycle of all activities). They also present some advanced authoring topics. Further details on selected topics are appended. A trial subscription to an online reference library is available.
