Starting a new WCF service and hitting F5 - 404 error RRS feed

    So out of the gate, creating a new WCF service application, you need to either

    - Add a small web app to to host the svc file

    - Add an http endpoint 


    In the past, with simple xml web services, I could hit F5 and get the service description page.

    You can anyway view the SVC file of your WCF if you hit F5 and see its WSDL as well. You will need to host the service when you want to consume it for some client but apart from that you can view WCF and it should not give you 404.
