The state machine in the screenshot above is quite simple, and most systems will require a more sophisticated model. However, the concepts introduced in the screenshot (states, events, and transitions) are the same concepts we use to build state machine workflows in Windows Workflow.
In WF, the
State activity represents a state in a state machine workflow. As events arrive, the workflow will transition between
State activities. A state machine workflow must specify an initial state, which will be the starting state for the workflow. A state machine workflow can optionally specify a completed state. The workflow will conclude after it transitions to the completed state.
