See more: WCF
Hi All,
I am a beginner in WCF, So please help me out. There is no IIS installed on my system.
So using Asp.net Web Development server.

This is my MathService.Svc file
<%@ ServiceHost Language="C#" Debug="true" Service="MathService" CodeBehind="~/App_Code/MathService.cs" %>

This is my MathService.cs code
public class Service : IMathService
{

    public int Add(int a, int b)
    {
        return a + b;
    }
}

When i try to add this service to a console application, i get the below error
The type 'MathService', provided as the Service attribute value in the ServiceHost directive could not be found.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: The type 'MathService', provided as the Service attribute value in the ServiceHost directive could not be found.


In the Web.config file I have changed the config file as
<system.serviceModel>
        <services>
            <service name="MathService" behaviorConfiguration="ServiceBehavior">
                <!-- Service Endpoints -->
                <endpoint address="" binding="wsHttpBinding" contract="IMathService">
                    <!--
              Upon deployment, the following identity element should be removed or replaced to reflect the
              identity under which the deployed service runs.  If removed, WCF will infer an appropriate identity
              automatically.
          -->
                    <identity>
                        <dns value="localhost"/>
                    </identity>
                </endpoint>
                <endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange"/>
            </service>
        </services>
        <behaviors>
            <serviceBehaviors>
                <behavior name="ServiceBehavior">
                    <!-- To avoid disclosing metadata information, set the value below to false and remove the metadata endpoint above before deployment -->
                    <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>
                    <!-- To receive exception details in faults for debugging purposes, set the value below to true.  Set to false before deployment to avoid disclosing exception information -->
                    <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/>
                </behavior>
            </serviceBehaviors>
        </behaviors>
    </system.serviceModel>

Please let me know what is this error popping up.
I am using .Net framework 3.5 and VS 2010.

When i try to run the Default service i.e. Service.Svc it works fine.

Check the namespaces for IService and Service.cs . Both should match

also in the contract value, add your namespace. servicecontract

like
<endpoint address="" binding="wsHttpBinding" contract="namespace.IMathService"></endpoint>
