How WIF Wedges Itself in the WCF Pipeline

if it’s true that a picture is worth 10^3 words… Without the carrot/stick of the book I would have never spent the cycles to put together a visual representation of it, but now that it’s done I am glad I did it. It’s so much simpler to think about how the flow goes, just by…

Protecting Workflow Services with WIF

It’s since March 2007 that WCF and WF started their mind meld (remember Orcas?) and I am tempted to say that in the .NET Framework 4 the process is pretty much complete. Want proof? You can use WIF for handling access to a Workflow Service just like you would do with a classic pure WCF…
