Hi People,

Recently I have idea to develop Intranet which also probably might go public or release some page to public.

My thinking is to use Silverlight or ASP.Net webforms as the user interface and using ASP.Net as the layer for processing the data.

I want to put focus a lot on Silverlight and therefore the ASP.Net roles will be only as data communication and/or synchronization between client and server.

I have heard of Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). I don't know it clearly yet. I will dig on it. But I would like to knows some opinions from the net. So please tell me about this ?

Thank you.

Ok, i have read some of WCF basic. it looks like some kind of service that can deliver data just like i imagined. i will try to spend more time reading it deeper. but can you helped me before that with these ?

a. does WCF hosted the same like ASP.Net, using IIS ? if yes is there certain version of IIS ? (no need to answer this. i know the answer already.)
b. my idea is that WCF will be the point where big process of data will be done. and Silverlight (or ASP.Net Webform) is where presentation will be done. can WCF do that ?

thank you.
WCF is hosted like ASP.Net (on IIS), however certain configuration may be diferent.
If your processing of data is too huge, it might be more suitable to let the WCF part be a passon layer and let some other implementation take care of the business logic.

Hi, Abhinav,

Thanks for your answer. I also thinking that WCF should be for the pass on layer by combining it with ASP.Net.
Only now is that my imagination about WCF still blur. By now I am reading some references and starting to got the image, only not exploring too far yet since references still talking about SOA.
Currently my thinking is like this schema :

SERVER (IIS/Others) <-- IN/OUT --> Internet (using WCF) <-- IN/OUT --> User/Intranet (Silverlight/WinForm/ASP.Net/Others)

Hope be able to implement it.
