WCF Bindings In A Nutshell

WCF is distributed application programming framework from Microsoft. WCF provides several ways out of the box to talk to legacy as well as new modern systems. The way WCF service talks to systems is determined thru binding.
Bindings specify the communication mechanism to use when talking to an endpoint and indicate how to connect to an endpoint.

  • The protocol stack determines the security, reliability, and context flow settings to use for messages that are sent to the endpoint.
  • The transport determines the underlying transport protocol to use when sending messages to the endpoint, for example, TCP or HTTP.
  • The encoding determines the wire encoding to use for messages that are sent to the endpoint, for example, text/XML, binary, or Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism (MTOM).
  • All you need to know about binding is to know the following features of that particular binding:

  • Interoperability
  • Security
  • Session
  • Transactions
  • Duplex
  • Encoding
  • Streaming
