The Windows Communication Foundation (or WCF) is an application programming interface in the .NET Framework for building connected, service-oriented applications.

A WCF service is composed of three parts - a Service class that implements the service to be provided, a host environment to host the service, and one or more endpoints to which clients will connect. All communication with the WCF service happens via the endpoints. The endpoints specify a Contract that defines which methods of the Service class will be accessible via the endpoint; each endpoint may expose a different set of methods. The endpoints also define a binding that specifies how a client will communicate with the service and the address where the endpoint is hosted.

Web services

Web services are typically application programming interfaces (API) or web APIs that are accessed via Hypertext Transfer Protocol and executed on a remote system hosting the requested services. Web services tend to fall into one of two camps: Big Web Services[1] and RESTful Web Services.
