Automation Parrallel Feature


#1

I coded a automation script with a parallel execution of 7 single automation scripts and tested it. It seems that the scripts were executed serially (based on the log), instead of parallel. Did I miss something?

You haven’t missed anything. The parallel activity is part of windows workflow and seems to be misnamed, in my opinion as well as others. It doesn’t really run in parallel. There are many articles on this subject.

Here is one.

I did look at writing our own activity that did in fact run in parallel but it won’t work with the design on WWF.
