  • Hi Dear all friends,

    I am newbies to WCF and start using some wcf service in my project.I want to host these WCF service as window service. But I also want to expose that service as .asmx(web service).I found the way to host wcf as window service but I can't find to expose as .asmx.

    Is it possible to do? Is there any way to expose wcf service as .asmx(web service) but need to host in window service.

  • WCF is much more advanced framework over ASMX.

    ASMX equivalent to WCF is basicHttpBinding which conform to the WS-I Basic Profile 1.1.

    So you can create a WCF service which uses basicHttpBinding and host that to a Windows Service which will enjoy the power traditional .ASMX.
