WCF Library projects

Visual Studio Orcas changes the way WCF projects are organized. They are located under a different folder for project types: Windows Communications Foundation (yep, spelled out in full). It is still only one project template, still called WCF Service Library.

If you think polar bears are cool, wait till you try to start an instance and debug the library (maybe by accident). You’ll see a new balloon pop up in your tray, that looks like this:

The new WCF Service Host application will host all of the services that have been configured in your app.config. For once, having an app.config file for a Library project really does something.

If you click on the balloon or double-click the icon later on, you get to see the host application in its full glory.

BTW, don’t tell my wife the time in the first screenshot. You want more blog posts, right?
