Demonstrates the following (see attached video):

  • Create a very basic WCF Service Library from the scratch (using Visual Studio 2010)
  • Configure WCF Service (with NetTcpBinding) using "WCF Service Configuration Editor"
  • Execute by hosting through "WCF Service Host"
  • Test the service using "WCF Test Client"
Source code is provided in previous article.  Configuration needs to be changed as shown below:

01.<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
04.  <system.web>
05.    <compilation debug="true" />
06.  </system.web>
08.  <system.serviceModel>
09.    <behaviors>
10.      <serviceBehaviors>
11.        <behavior name="SampleCalcSvcBehavior">
12.          <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" />
13.          <serviceMetadata />
14.        </behavior>
15.      </serviceBehaviors>
16.    </behaviors>
17.    <services>
18.      <service behaviorConfiguration="SampleCalcSvcBehavior" name="SampleCalcSvc.CalcService">
19.        <endpoint address="" binding="netTcpBinding" bindingConfiguration=""
20.          name="SampleCalcSvcNetTcpEndPoint" contract="SampleCalcSvc.ICalcService" />
21.        <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexTcpBinding" bindingConfiguration=""
22.          name="SampleCalcSvcMexTcpEndPoint" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
23.        <host>
24.          <baseAddresses>
25.            <add baseAddress="net.tcp://localhost:8080/SampleSvc" />
26.          </baseAddresses>
27.        </host>
28.      </service>
29.    </services>
