In this chapter, we created a real world WCF service that has a service contract layer and a business logic layer. We used the built-in WCF Service Library template to create the service, and followed the WCF service development best practice to separate the service interfaces from the business logics.

In the next chapter, we will add one more layer, the data access layer, to the service, and add error handling to the service.
