Learning WCF

What is WCF?
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework for building service-oriented applications.
It is a unified, simplified and optimized evolution of a number of communication technologies into a single  model. [Ref: MSDN]

Why it is important?
Enables you to create service oriented applications. Provide a unified way to communicate with different system.Developers can focus on designing  data and service contracts without having to make prior decisions on which transport, messaging or security protocols and policies to adopt.Allows one to configure service properties such as transport (http/pipes/tcp/Tibco EMS), security models (any of the W3C standards), compression, encoding, timeouts, etc, without changing ANY code.
