Programming WCF Services

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is Microsoft’s unified programming model for building service-oriented applications. In one of my other tutorial Introducing Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), I have presented detailed overview of WCF key features, important concepts and architecture.  In this tutorial, I will give you exposure to the WCF programming experience by giving you basic understanding of the steps required to create WCF service and client application.


Introducing Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework designed for software and web developers who want to develop distributed service-oriented applications. WCF allows developers to create, host, consume and secure services using Microsoft platform in a most productive way so that developers can focus on their implementation rather than communication protocols and low level messaging details. In this tutorial, I will cover the basic concepts needed to work with WCF services. You will be able to create and consume services using the most commonly used features of WCF technology.
