  • Patent number: 8170901
    Abstract: A user interface for building a componentized workflow model. Each step of the workflow is modeled as an activity that has metadata to describe design time aspects, compile time aspects, and runtime aspects of the workflow step. A user selects and arranges the activities to create the workflow via the user interface. The metadata associated with each of the activities in the workflow is collected to create a persistent representation of the workflow. Users extend the workflow model by authoring custom activities.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20060074735
    Abstract: An ink-enabled user interface for building a componentized workflow model. A touch screen display device allows each step of the workflow to be modeled as an activity that has metadata to describe design time aspects, compile time aspects, and runtime aspects of the workflow step. A user selects and arranges the activities via the touch screen device to create the workflow via user interfaces or application programming interfaces. The metadata associated with each of the activities in the workflow is collected to create a persistent representation of the workflow. Users extend the workflow model by authoring custom activities.

  • Publication number: 20060074737
    Abstract: Visual composition of an activity for re-use in a composite activity or in a workflow. A user declaratively and/or programmatically generates reusable composite activities from existing activities interactively using a visual designer. The activity has one or more configuration properties associated therewith that define the behavior of an aspect of the activity. Depending on the value of the configuration properties, the activity may be, for example, partially configured, fully configured, or minimally configured. A user or developer completes the configuration of the activity during re-use of the activity in a composite activity or in a workflow.
