Modern applications are distributed, loose-coupled and service oriented. Decoupled systems perform and scale better, maintenance is far easier (by reducing complexity into smaller more maintainable parts). Communication system that glue together these decoupled parts is important part of the system. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) has always been de-facto framework for communication between decoupled systems/processes in […]
