Creating a Web Service with Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF - part of .NET 3.0) provides a robust framework that allows Web Services and .NET Remoting applications to be built and consumed using a consistent object model. In this video tutorial I walk through the fundamentals of creating a WCF service exposed through HTTP and IIS. Topics covered include defining a data contract using XSD schemas, generating data entity code using svcutil.exe, creating a service interface, implementing a service interface and consuming a service through a client-side proxy.
