Application designers and developers have been attempting to deliver loosely coupled services using technologies like ASMX, .NET Enterprise Services, MSMQ, and .NET remoting for roughly the past five years. These experiences have proven to be very challenging and there have been limitations found in each of the .NET programming techniques. The result has been passive adoption by enterprises and constant confusion in the development community on what technology is best suited for delivering building block application components. Welcome Windows Communication Foundation (formerly “Indigo”). This technology stack from Microsoft claims to be the unified technology best positioned to help developers deliver to a service-oriented strategy.

In the first part of this article on Windows Communication Foundation, I covered the programming model and end point definition. This second part will describe in detail how contracts are defined in WCF. Following contract definition, I will describe how to invoke a WCF service from a client. Finally, I will give an overview of how you can host WCF services today and how that may change in the future.

Very good article. Clarified a lot of confusions on SOA and WCF.

Keep up the good work.
