Summary

In this chapter, we have hosted the HelloWorld WCF service in several different ways and explained different scenarios when debugging a WCF service. The key points in this chapter include:

  • A WCF service can be hosted in ASP.NET Development Server, in a managed application, in a Windows service, or in IIS
  • IIS is a better WCF hosting option for interacting with legacy applications
  • You can start the debugging process for a WCF service from the client application, from the service application, or by attaching to the service process
  • The Just-In-Debugger is helpful for determining the reason for the exception when the application is running outside of Visual Studio
