Windows Communication  Foundation

WCF is a application development framework that deals with the services for creating service oriented applications that involves the use of .NET framework. With the help of WCF developers can build secure and reliable distributed application development to help leverage your business processes. Concepts of WCF can be run on any browser you like thus enables cross-platform and cross-browser application communication conveniently and also makes multiple clients access to the same service possible.

The key advantage that WCF holds is that it’s one of the major subsystems in .NET and its development is interoperability .i.e. provides the ability to exchange and use information in a network of several LANs.

Benefits of using WCF

  • WCF provides Interoperability and is highly extensible
  • WCF is cross platform and also enables cross application communication
  • .NET services can be migrated to WCF for additional advantage of the WCF features
  • Allows multiple clients to access the same service
