See more: C# WCF
In Visual Studio 2010, there are two options to create a WCF Service. The first one is File | New | Projects... | WCF | WCF Service Application. The second one is via File| New | Web Site... | Visual C# | WCF Service. Both of them looks like the same. What exactly are the differences between the two projects?

Solution 1

One is hosted in IIS and the other is self hosted, as in an executable file. Except for how it's hosted there's no difference between the two, you would write the same code.
