Summary

In this chapter, we implemented a basic WCF service, hosted it within IIS Express, and created a command-line program to reference and consume this basic WCF service. At this point, you should have a thorough understanding as to what a WCF service is, under the hood. You will benefit from this when you develop WCF services, using Visual Studio WCF templates or automation guidance packages.

In the next chapter, we will explore more hosting options and discuss how to debug a WCF service.
