Workflow Foundation Support in dotConnect for Oracle

Posted by on October 24th, 2011

We continue to extend the capabilities of dotConnect for Oracle with new features. Recently we have started to implement Workflow Foundation support features in dotConnect for Oracle. First we have implemented Oracle Workflow Instant Store support. This feature allows workflows to persist their state information in the Oracle database. dotConnect for Oracle provides the scripts for creating schema to store workflow instance state information in and the OracleWorkflowInstanceStore class that is used to persist workflow instance state information.

Currently only Enabling Persistence for Self-Hosted Workflows that use WorkflowApplication is supported. To use Oracle Workflow Instance Store you need Oracle server 9 or higher. To know how to enable Persistence for Self-Hosted Workflows read our documentation.

Recently we have added the OracleTrackingParticipant class to support Workflow Tracking. OracleTrackingParticipant class. This class allows you to subscribe to tracking records, reflecting key events during the workflow execution, and store these records to an Oracle database. dotConnect for Oracle provides the scripts for creating schema to store TrackingRecord object information. To know how to use the OracleTrackingParticipant read our documentation.
