Another great article! Thanks :)

Question:
1) you mentioned "tracking channel" a little bit. Should we write code to open a tracking channel, or workflow runtime gets tracking profile and creates a channel automatically?

2) When a tracking profile is updated, a new tracking channel will be created?

Hi Jun:

Sorry I wasn't clearer about channels.

Tracking channels are a means of communication between the workflow runtime and the tracking service. Our code never has to worry about channels (unless we are writing a custom tracking service).

A new channel is open for every workflow instance, actually. When updating a profile future workflow instances will have new channels tracking with n ew profiles.

Hope that makes some sense.
