  • Question

  • Dear,

    I don't know if I'm right to ask you this question but I would like to know whether WCF will be still supported by Microsoft or is it will go away.

    I'm actually spending much effort and time to learn it deeply. So I don't really want to waste my time.

    Any clue?

    Abdoul

  • Hi,

    WCF is still supported by Microsoft and I think it won’t go away. Currently, more and more people use Web API and even Asp.net Core. For http communication, Web api might be better which is lightweight and is more easy to develop. But, Web Api is not supported for non-Http communication, such as MSMQ or Named Pipes, or where SOAP is a requirement.

    In a consolation, for http communication, I would suggest you use web api, for non-http or soap based services, I suggest you try WCF.

    Best Regards,

    Edward

  • Do you have any issue with above previous reply? As far as I know, there is no plan to abandon WCF, and WCF will be still supported.
