Today I was having a look at one of our WCF Restful projects.To start with the code understanding,I decided to host that in my local host and then take a look.To my surprise,I was unable get a svc url as we usually get, for example: http://wordpress.com/Service1.svc .Digging further I realized, being a wcf restful service it’s not ideal having an extension this way and it has been achieved through System.Web.Routing integration .Routing allows to host a WCF restful service that responds to URIs without an extension .Cool right?It’s a new feature with .Net 4.0.I am avoiding a rewriting of an example code here as msdn has got a beautiful simple explanation over here.Take a look!
