What do you like best?
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a software to create new and brilliant applications oriented to services for your company, business or to resell the product. With WCF, you can send thousands of data as important messages asynchronously from one endpoint of service to another.
A point of service can be part of a team that provides it continuously and is always available hosted by IIS, or it can be a service hosted in an application. An endpoint can be a customer of a service that requests data from a service endpoint
What do you dislike?
Because WCF is built with the .NET Framework, it also includes code methods that support the provision of contracts that you want to apply, but sometimes this may require higher implementation costs.
Messages can be encrypted to protect privacy and may require users to authenticate, this platform sometimes has auto login and it is not possible to log out quickly.
The WCF architecture has a series of extensibility points. If additional capacity is required, they increase the cost of an implementation.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Different transports support different messaging patterns and, therefore, affect the types of interactions they support. The execution time and the WCF APIs also help you send messages safely and reliably.
By default, the Add Service Reference feature generates asynchronous task return service methods. It is done for both synchronous and asynchronous methods. In this way, you can call service operations asynchronously using the new task-based asynchronous programming model.
