What is WebFlow?


WebFlow is the application of WebHooks, WebScripts, and WebServices; WebFlow is workflow for the web. RESTful WebFlow is intended to be used by RESTful WebHooks and RESTful WebServices. The primary implication of this is that RESTful WebFlow operates as a state machine rather than a sequential flow. This decision is based on the fact that REST is stateless. If I post a resource to a WebService (WF Activity) I should not expect a response other than HTTP Success/Error codes; the result of the activity is broadcast via WebHooks. WebScripts act as adapters that convert the output of a WebHook into API calls of the input.
