Tutorial: Create a Durable Service

Durable services are Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services that use context bindings, attributes, and new configuration elements to persist service state information to a store, such as a SQL database, which means that durable services have the capability to restore their own state when they are recycled. Durable services are useful when implementing long-running stateful conversations.
