[WF4]Persistence Store Or Instance Store

 

Persistence Store and Instance Store actually indicate the same thing.
In WF3/3.5, the type is

   SqlWorkflowPersistenceService

So, people usually call it Persistence Store. while in WF4 the type is:

   SqlWorkflowInstanceStore

People call it Instance store.

There are other different conversions between WF3 and WF4. for example, in WF4 workflow service refer to persistence service and tracking things. while in WF4 workflow service refer to WCF workflow service.
