Definition: WWF


(1) (Windows Workflow Foundation) The workflow subsystem in Windows, starting with Vista. Introduced in .NET Framework 3.0, WWF enables tasks to be automated, and workflows are described using .NET or XAML. WWF activities run sequentially or in parallel, and although a base set is provided, developers can create their own. In a Web services scenario, a WWF flow would set up the logic, and Windows would send messages to applications (see WCF). See .NET Framework and XAML.

(2) (World Wide Fund for Nature) Founded in 1961 as the World Wildlife Fund, the WWF is the world's largest conservation organization. It deals with climate, food, forests, oceans, wildlife and more. For more information, visit www.panda.org. See WWF file format.
