Advanced Workflows: Foundation

Overview  

This two-day course is the first in the Advanced Workflows series: establish a solid conceptual foundation of the workflow capabilities in Geocortex Essentials and build complex .NET-based workflows with confidence.


Course Outline  

The Advanced Workflows: Foundation training site

Configure the Advanced Workflows: Foundation training site by performing these tasks:

  • Build the Advanced Workflows: Foundation training site
  • Describe the Advanced Workflows: Foundation approach to learning workflows
  • Summarize the features of the Advanced Workflows: Foundation training site
  • Describe how to create the Advanced Workflows: Foundation training site

Optimize workflow performance

Use variable scoping to optimize workflow performance by performing these tasks:

  • Use sequences to optimize workflows
  • Use sequences to improve workflow readability
  • Employ variable scoping to optimize workflows
  • Build a performance testing workflow to examine the effects of variable scoping
  • Explain how serialization errors are symptomatic of a design issue
  • Correct a workflow design issue using variable scoping

Use parallel activities

Use parallel activities to improve workflow performance by performing these tasks:

  • Run independent client activities in parallel
  • Build a workflow to examine the performance of independent client activities run in parallel
  • Run asynchronous server activities in parallel
  • Build a workflow to examine the performance of asynchronous server activities run in parallel

Manage workflow exceptions

Manage workflow exceptions by performing these tasks:

  • Use the AssetIsTrue activity to handle workflow exceptions
  • Build a workflow to handle workflow exceptions
  • Use the TryCatch activity to manage workflow exceptions
  • Build a workflow to manage workflow exceptions

Explore the Esri FeatureSet object

Use a workflow to extract data from an Esri FeatureSet by performing these tasks:

  • Describe how to find a feature in a collection of Esri FeatureSet features
  • Examine an Esri FeatureSet using Geocortex Essentials’ Workflow Designer
  • Build a workflow to examine a simple feature set
  • Use workflow activities to iterate through a collection of Esri features
  • Build a simple workflow to extract a feature from a collection of Esri features

The application lab

Build a workflow that demonstrates workflow design practices using a multi-feature Esri FeatureSet by performing these tasks:

  • Build a workflow to extract and display data from a multi-featured Esri FeatureSet object
  • Apply workflow design practices to optimize workflow performance
Self-Directed Training

    Customer Reviews  
  • "I used knowledge from the class the very next day in my workflows. I understand how workflows actually work much better than I did before."

    Sean McClurkan Application Consultant

  • "As someone who has recently been using Workflow Foundations for a few years, this course tied together a lot conceptually for me. It was well laid out and presented, and the course material was applicable to a lot of the work I have been doing. A must for anyone who is getting more involved in developing workflows."
