In WCF any receiving message is delivered only once entire message has been received. What I mean here is that first message is buffered at the receiving side and once it is fully received it gets delivered to the receiving end. Main problem with this approach is that receiver end is unresponsive while message is getting buffered. So default way of message handling in WCF is ok for small size messages but for the large size messages this approach is not good. So to overcome this problem Streaming in WCF come into action.

The WCF callback mode is a special type of mode where WCF on the call back calls the method of client and in this scenario WCF service acts as a client and client acts as a service.
This mode is not supported by "HTTPBinding" so "WSDualHttpBinding" is used in this mode.

Representational State Transfer (REST) is a protocol for exchanging data over a distributed environment. The main idea behind REST is that we should treat our distributed services as a resource and we should be able to use simple HTTP protocols to perform various operations on that resource.
GET: Retrieves the information.
PUT: Replaces the entire collection with another collection.
POST: Creates a new entry in the collection.
DELETE: Deletes the entire collection.

WCF Data Services uses OData (Open Data Protocol) protocol for querying or manipulating the data. WCF Data Services is built on top of WCF REST Services. It is a RESTful service to support CRUD operations on the database using the HTTP protocol. It supports all database operations using URI. DATA protocol can expose data from the relational database, File systems, Web sites, services etc. It supports XML or JSON format for exposing the data.

After the initial deployment of the WCF service, you may need to change the service for a variety of reasons like as changing business needs or fixing others issues. Each change in your existing service introduces a new version of the service. Service versioning is helpful in backward compatibility with your existing clients.

Impersonation is a way to authorize a caller (client) identity to access the service domainâ€™s resources. The service resources may be local files or database tables and should be on the same machine on which service is hosted. By default, impersonation is disabled and resources are accessed by using the WCF service's process identity.

Concurrency management is closely related to the Instance management in WCF but both are two different things. Instance management specifies how the service instances are created while Concurrency management specifies how many concurrent requests are handled by the service instances. By using concurrency, you can make your service instance thread-safe. By default, a per-call service instance is thread-safe since each request is served by a new service instance. A per-session service instance is not thread-safe since multiple requests of a client are served by a single service instance. Hence, itâ€™s required concurrency management. A single service instance is not thread-safe since multiple requests of all clients are served by a single service instance. Hence, itâ€™s required concurrency management.

When a client made a request to a service, it will wait until it gets the response back.
If the response is not received until the given time, it will show an error.
If the client gets the response then next instructions will be executed.

There are three modes of communication in WCF:
In the One-Way operation mode, the client will send a request to the server and does not care whether it is success or failure of service execution. There is no return from the server side, it is one-way communication.
When as client makes a request to the WCF service and client will wait to get a response from service (till receiveTimeout). After getting the response it will start executing the rest of the statement.
It is the service to call the client. In which, service will act as client and client will act as service.

WCF manages the session by creating the instance of the service class. This created instance(s) handle the incoming service request. In WCF, the session is the way of managing the services instance(s) so that the server can use these instances in an optimized way. At the server side, the InstanceContext class is used to manage service class instance. There are following instance management ways :
* Per Call
* Per Session

Transaction propagation is the ability to propagate a transaction across the boundaries of a single service. Or in other words, we can say that a service can participate in a transaction that is initiated by a client.
In a SOA environment, transaction propagation becomes a key requirement. As we know, WCF supports SOA, so it provides support for transaction propagation as well.

There might be requirements where Service's Operation is not going to return any value. And at the same time client also does not bother about success or failure of service. Only for the client does calling the service matter. Client will call the operation and forget and continue with the operations.
One Way Operations
This is the way in WCF to achieve Fire and forget invocation of the service. Once the Client issues the call, WCF generates the request message and there is no corresponding response message for that. No Service side Exception will make their way to client.

When an operation has no return value, and the client does not care about the success or failure of the invocation. WCF offers one-way operations to support this sort of fire-and-forget invocation,: once the client issues the call, WCF generates a request message, but no correlated reply message will ever return to the client. The one-way message exchange pattern is useful when a client needs to send information to a service but doesn't receive a response.
Use the one-way design pattern:
When the client must call operations and is not affected by the result of the operation at the operation level.
When using the NetMsmqBinding or the MsmqIntegrationBinding class. (For more information about this scenario, see Queues in Windows Communication Foundation.)

Following is a list of different isolation levels in WCF:
<> Read Uncommitted: Also known as dirty isolation level. It makes sure that corrupt Data cannot be read. This is the lowest isolation level.
<> Read Committed: It ensures not to read the data that has been changed by any other application and is not yet committed. It is the default level.
<> Repeatable Read: It stops the usage of dirt read and non-repeatable read. It states that data fetched through a query will be locked and will not be updated by any other transaction.
<> Serializable: It does not allow any modification and addition of new data till the transaction is completed. This is considered to be a very restrictive level.
<> Snapshot: It raises an error on modifying a data that has already been changed by any transaction.

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) was introduced in .NET 3.0. This is a great network distributed system developed by Microsoft for communication between applications. WCF is meant for designing and deploying distributed applications under a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) implementation. From MSDN: Windows Communication Foundation is a part of the .NET Framework that provides a unified programming model for rapidly building service-oriented applications that communicate across the web and the enterprise. WCF is a combined feature of Web Service, Remoting, MSMQ and COM+.
There are the following three main components of a WCF application.
1. WCF Service class: A WCF Service class implements some service as a set of methods.
2. WCF Service host: WCF supports four types of hosting, IIS, Windows Process Activation Services (WAS), self-hosting and Windows Services.
3. WCF Service endpoints: All communication with a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service occurs through the endpoints of the service. Usually the name of the Interface will be specified in the contract, so the client application will be aware of the operations that are exposed to the client.
Each endpoint contains:
* Address: An address that indicates where to find the service.
* Binding: A binding that specifies how a client can communicate with the service.
* Contract: A Contract that specifies what can the service do for us.

We have our project (it may be Windows or a web application or something else) and we want to host one WCF service within this solution locally. This type of hosting is called Self-Hosting. To implement self-hosting we need to include System.Service.Model.ServiceHost namespace.
The following are the advantages of self-hosting:
Is easy to use: With only a few lines of code you have your service running.
Is flexible: You can easily control the lifetime of your services through the Open() and Close() methods of ServiceHost<T>.
Is easy to debug: Debugging WCF services that are hosted in a self-hosted environment provides a familiar way of debugging, without having to attach to separate applications that activate your service.
Is easy to deploy: In general, deploying simple Windows applications is as easy as xcopy. You don't need any complex deployment scenarios on server farms, and the like, to deploy a simple Windows application that serves as a WCF ServiceHost.
Supports all bindings and transports: Self-hosting doesn't limit you to out-of-the-box bindings and transports whatsoever. On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, IIS limits you to HTTP only.
The following are the disadvantages of self-hosting:
Limited availability: The service is reachable only when the application is running.
Limited features: Self-hosted applications have limited support for high availability, easy manageability, robustness, recoverability, versioning, and deployment scenarios. At least, out-of-the-box WCF doesn't provide these, so in a self-hosted scenario you have to implement these features yourself; IIS, for example, comes with several of these features by default.
