This project shows how to host WCF in Windows Azure, and how to consume it.  It includes:

1) A WCF web role , which hosts WCF in IIS;
2) A work role which hosts a WCF service (self-hosting); and
3) A windows console client that consumes the WCF services above.

The client application talks to the web role via http protocol defined as an input endpoint.  The client application also talks to the work role directly via tcp protocol defined as an input point. This demonstrates how to expose an Azure worker role to an external connection from the internet.  The web role talks to the worker role via tcp protocol defined in an internal end point, to demonstrate the inter-role communication within an Azure hosted service.

imageYou can find more code samples that demonstrate the most typical programming scenarios by using Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework Sample Browser or Sample Browser Visual Studio extension. They give you the flexibility to search samples, download samples on demand, manage the downloaded samples in a centralized place, and automatically be notified about sample updates. If it is the first time that you hear about Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework, please watch the introduction video on Microsoft Showcase, or read the introduction on our homepage http://1code.codeplex.com/.
