In the first part of this two part series on Windows Communication Foundation I have introduced a portion of the value proposition and anatomy of WCF services. I have demonstrated the inherent value of the unification of the programming model and the increased agility extended to developers with next generation end points. In the second part of this article, I will explain how contract definition changes, how to configure a client to invoke a WCF service, and how we can host WCF services now and in the future.
