What is WCF………

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is an SDK for developing and deploying services on Windows. WCF provides a runtime environment for services, enabling you to expose CLR types as services, and to consume other services as CLR types.

WCF is part of .NET 3.0 and requires .NET 2.0, so it can only run on systems that support it.

WCF is fundamentally different from previous communication technologies. Another common “jargon-phrase” you will hear thrown around a lot is “SOA” or Service Oriented Architecture. Extremely simplified, think of SOA has different pieces of code/services running around the world and clients can make use of those services. These service hosts take care of internal complexities, and the communication infrastructure allows for things such as versioning and the communication infrastructure.
