Demonstrates hosting WCF services.

Service Interoperability
Demonstrates interaction between WCF and other service technologies.

Demonstrates WCF service behaviors.

Service Security
Demonstrates WCF service security.

Simplified Configuration for WCF Services

Configuration Channel Factory
Demonstrates the usage of the ConfigurationChannelFactory<TChannel>.

Demonstrates various aspects and features of endpoint addresses.

Demonstrates how to define a < xref:System.ServiceModel.WsHttpBinding> for a service using code, instead of defining the wsHttpBinding binding in configuration.

Multiple Contracts
Demonstrates how to implement more than one contract on a service and how to configure endpoints for communicating with each of the implemented contracts.
