What is the correct way to manage workflow instance and work items? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I read some sample code in MSDN and book "Pro WF". All sample code initialize one workflow instance to process one work item, such as one PO. Is this the right way for enterprise applications. There will be thousands of active PO in one enterprise application. Should we initialize thousands of workflow instances?

    At least I do not think so. Then what is correct pattern to manage workflow instances in enterprise applications? How could we manage the relationship between workflow instance and work items?
