5-Host-Client-(Changing the service configuration by editing the app.config file)-Part 2
Duration: 17 minutes
Summary: In this video we continue our tour of creating a service, hosting it, and creating the client. The major concept we cover here is the configuration. We saw how we can change the service configuration by editing the app.config file and by right-clicking on the app.config and editing it using a GUI. We discuss the different parts that we can configure. There is the service behavior that allows us to turn on the httpGetEnabled to true so we can retrieve metadata information about the service using the ?wsdl in the web browser. We also talked about the endpoints. Endpoints are made up of three parts (they are called the ABCs of WCF): Address, Binding, and Contract. We added couple of endpoints and we called the service methods using these different endpoints.
Methodology of the development of example: Good coding standard and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
Technology Used: Windows Communication Foundation
