In this technical article, I will present the full picture of web services, basing on WCF technology over HTTP using IIS when going into details. Both beginners and experienced developers may use this article as a checklist of things they already know or want to learn.
By the full picture I mean from a need to have a web service, choosing web service type, correct configuration (e.g. security), deployment environment, to testing tools. I assume you have already created your “Hello web service” application, or just want to have a closer look at the topic.
