    Hi all,

         Recently i am working on a wcf project. we need to make decision on the way to deploy the web services. I did research and so far I found 2 ways.

    1. Create a wcf service library project and a wcf service web site. in this way the service will be implemented in the library and be called from the website.

    2. Create a wcf service application project. This will create a wcf service, which is ready to be deployed on IIS. All the implementation will be done within the project.

    They both seem to work. Any body know which is a better way of doing this? thanks

    Yes. I recommend against ever using a Web Site "project" for anything but simple web sites. So, don't do that.
