LINQExtender to Windows Workflow Foundation

Dec 2, 2007 at 12:29 AM
Does anyone in the community have any thoughts or feedback as to whether it might be useful, or sensible, or what the benefits might be, of using LINQExtender, if it can be used in the following way, to talk LINQtoSQL to the Windows Workflow Foundation engine? -adam cassel adamDOTcasselATgmailDOTcom

LinqExtender sits between core linq framework and custom provider(ex. Linq.Flickr), it can be ported to any engine that is dependent on some data source. Let’s say you move your work flow items and you want to save the state to database , now consider this , in project I save , retrieve photos from flickr , which is a class library project created on top of LinqExtender. Now, if you want to do the same , create a Linq.someProject (start off with vsi installer),write the proper logic to add , remove and querying workflow items state(in your case execuing sql query or proc or some dataacess call, depending on the query that is made), finally ,you can reference it to your workflow project and on save or get of workflow items, you ust do it with LINQ query , just like you were doing it with method calls,all these times

Hope this helps
