I have created a WCF Rest service in framework 4.0 which returns a xml document. I viewed it in browser by right clicking the svc file in the solution, and it is fine. The URL to get the response xml on my local machine is http://localhost:50052/Service1.svc/GetDocument/

However, the client needs to access my service URL just like a web-service asmx URL. I need to host the WCF Rest service.

How do I host the WCF Rest service in IIS 7.0? How will the third party access my service.

Hi Anurag,

I have been through these two links while googling , anyways thanks for it.

The problem in the first link is, I am not clear what needs to be entered in the Site/Application box in the publish dialog.

In second link it is mentioned that no change is required in web.config file. I am not sure as it is not working for me. It gives me the below error:
Exception Details: System.ArgumentException: ServiceHost only supports class service types.

Let me see if i can help you.

The WCF REST service can be published from the site itself and directly be hosted.
