  • WCF is for building services, WPF is for building user interfaces.
    you can use WPF to build the front end of a service-oriented app where the (back-end) services are built using WCF technology

    Great! Thanks Evan.

    If you don't mind, can you give me best real world example of WCF?

  • Microsoft would be the best source of information for that.
    Or maybe you can just post a query to the WCF forum
