    Hi drvenom101,

    I am confused with the difference between wcf web api and asp.net web api.

    I suggest you can refer the following tutorials, you will have a basic understanding of them.

    ASP.NET Web API:

    ASP.NET Web API is a framework that makes it easy to build HTTP services that reach a broad range of clients, including browsers and mobile devices. ASP.NET Web API is an ideal platform for building RESTful applications on the .NET Framework.

    Windows Communication Foundation(WCF):

    There have some differences between WCF and ASP.NET Web API:

    As far as I know, WCF was originally created to enable SOAP-based services. For simpler RESTful services ASP.NET Web API should be a good choice.

    Best Regards,
