WCF (Windows Communication Foundation)

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is a framework provided by Microsoft for building distributed and interoperable service-oriented applications on the Windows platform. WCF enables developers to create and consume web services, RESTful services, and message-based services using various communication protocols and formats such as HTTP, TCP, SOAP, and XML. WCF provides features for service hosting, message routing, security, and transaction management to facilitate communication between distributed components and systems.
