More on WCF configuration

· October 22, 2008

In my last post I mentioned the great WCF service/client configuration editor that ships with Visual Studio 2008. I haven’t used it much but rather done “it” by hand - which has been quite painful from time to time.

Here is a great introduction to the editor that shows off some of the great capabilities of it.

Another “tip”, if you like, that I found on my way through the configuration jungle is that the binding part is complete separated from the other part of the configuration. Also, the client and server binding should be configured the same way (at least for a single endpoint). This means, and is actually quite effective, that you can copy the binding part from one .config-file to another to get the same configuration. An easy but very helpful tip.
