What are end points, contract, address and bindings? (Views: 1953)


1        1


An endpoint is the component of the service that communicates with the client and provides the service operations.


Contracts define certain aspects of the service such as the format and structure of the message, and equally important, the behavior of the service. Service contracts are well-formed XML documents, typically found in the format of WSDL or XSD.


All the endpoints are addressed by their address.


Bindings are what define how an endpoint communicates with the outside world. Each endpoint must have a binding. The binding, which is simply a set of properties, defines things like the transport pattern, the security pattern, and the message pattern.

Endpoint is the combination of Address, Binding and Contract.
Contract defines what the service provides.
Binding defines how to communicate with the service and Address defines where the service resides.
