Beginner's questions about WCF and web services RRS feed

  • Question

  • For the purpose of this forum let me just say that I got my certs back in Dot Net 2.0.  I know how to write simple web services.  Now someone has dumped a huge package of code on my desk that (I think) contains a WCF project (without documentation of course).  Contains references to System.ServiceModel.

    So my questions...

    1.  What (if anything) is the difference between WCF and Web API?

    2.  If there is a difference,  how do you decide which one to use?

     3.  Assuming that this project on my desk is a WCF project, where can I find some hints on how to run it in VS2013 Community?
