WCF stands for Windows Communication Foundation which was released as part of Microsoft .Net framework 3.0 to implement Web services. It is a programming platform and runtime system for developing, configuring and deploying network-distributed services. WCF concentrates on connecting XML to programs that are built using development languages supported by Microsoft, like VB.NET and C#. To support this interlingual communication, WCF uses the extensible Simple Object Access Protocol. It contains a complex system for working with data easily: once you have created the classes that represent data, your service automatically generates the metadata that allows clients comply with the data types you have designed. It provides an opportunity to unify an existing .NET Framework communication technologies and support cross-vendor interoperability, including security, reliability, and transactions. WCF has many other advanced features, such as service orientation, multiple message pattern, service metadata, data contacts, transactions and many others. There are a number of entry points that allow you to customize the behavior of a service. WCF is a flexible platform and it is also used in several other Microsoft products.

Questions and Answers related to WCF Development
What are the advantages/disadvantages of using WCF? What other options exist?
“Advantage WCF is set of the ready to use libraries. You can create and use REST and SOAP services in few seconds. It gives you ability to control user and permissions, manage endpoints and so on.

When should WCF be used over related technologies?
“The short answer is, every time. That is, every time you build an application that needs to (or will need to) send messages between services and clients.

This is the go to solution when data is consumed in a web browser or when humans need to be able to understand the protocol over the wire. Azure Resource Management is a good example of this; HTTPS + Protocol Buffers or Flat Buffers. Protocol buffers/flat buffers provide an extremely efficient communication mechanism for a variety of applications, including mobile apps…”
Can I use WCF to run multiple instances of a service?
“Yes it can be a good choice. But you have to consider the following notes: Hosting WCF. WCF can be hosted in many ways. For example it can be hosted in IIS as an XML Web service or a REST API. You have to be sure you can host your service on the client machine later. Stateless: you should design a wrapper service around your calculation library.
