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.
