What to read

Simple RESTful Message based Client

var client = new JsonServiceClient("http://localhost:8080/webhost");

var createRequest = new CreateClientRequest
    {
        Email = "email@email.com"
    };
ClientResponse response = client.Post<ClientResponse>(createRequest);

var updateRequest = new UpdateClientRequest
    {
        Email = "new@email.com",
        Id = response.Id
    };
response = client.Put<ClientResponse>(updateRequest);

var getClientRequest = new GetClientRequest
    {
        Id = response.Id
    };
response = client.Get<ClientResponse>(getClientRequest);

var deleteRequest = new DeleteClientRequest
    {
        Id = response.Id
    };
client.Delete(deleteRequest);

Simple RESTful Message based service on the pure WCF

var service = new WebServiceHost(typeof(JsonServicePerCall));
service.Open();

JsonServicePerCall - is predefined service which implements following interface IJsonService

The IJsonService is flexible, stable and maintainable, we can transfer any data, because the service contract depends only from WCF's Message class. "The Message class is fundamental to Windows Communication Foundation (WCF). All communication between clients and services ultimately results in Message instances being sent and received." (MSDN)

[ServiceContract]
public interface IJsonService
{
    [OperationContract]
    [WebInvoke(Method = OperationType.Delete,
        UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.Delete,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    Message Delete(Message message);

    [OperationContract]
    [WebInvoke(Method = OperationType.Delete,
        UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.DeleteOneWay,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    void DeleteOneWay(Message message);

    [OperationContract]
    [WebGet(UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.Get,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    Message Get(Message message);

    [OperationContract]
    [WebGet(UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.GetOneWay,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    void GetOneWay(Message message);

    [OperationContract]
    [WebInvoke(Method = OperationType.Post,
        UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.Post,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    Message Post(Message message);

    [OperationContract]
    [WebInvoke(Method = OperationType.Post,
        UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.PostOneWay,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    void PostOneWay(Message message);

    [OperationContract]
    [WebInvoke(Method = OperationType.Put,
        UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.Put,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    Message Put(Message message);

    [OperationContract]
    [WebInvoke(Method = OperationType.Put,
        UriTemplate = RestServiceMetadata.Path.PutOneWay,
        RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    void PutOneWay(Message message);
}

WCF's RESTful service

Nelibur already contains JsonServicePerCall service, but you can create your own custom Service, for instance

[ServiceBehavior(InstanceContextMode = InstanceContextMode.PerCall)]
public sealed class SampleWebService : IJsonService
{
    public void DeleteOneWay(Message message)
    {
        NeliburRestService.ProcessOneWay(message);
    }

    public Message Delete(Message message)
    {
        return NeliburRestService.Process(message);
    }

    public void GetOneWay(Message message)
    {
        NeliburRestService.ProcessOneWay(message);
    }

    public Message Get(Message message)
    {
        return NeliburRestService.Process(message);
    }

    public void PostOneWay(Message message)
    {
        NeliburRestService.ProcessOneWay(message);
    }

    public Message Post(Message message)
    {
        return NeliburRestService.Process(message);
    }

    public void PutOneWay(Message message)
    {
        NeliburRestService.ProcessOneWay(message);
    }

    public Message Put(Message message)
    {
        return NeliburRestService.Process(message);
    }
}

Request binding on appropriate Processor

NeliburRestService.Configure(x =>
{
    x.Bind<CreateClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
    x.Bind<UpdateClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
    x.Bind<DeleteClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
    x.Bind<GetClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
});

ClientProcessor example

public sealed class ClientProcessor : IPost<CreateClientRequest>,
									 IGet<GetClientRequest>,
									 IDeleteOneWay<DeleteClientRequest>,
									 IPut<UpdateClientRequest>
{
    private static List<Client> _clients = new List<Client>();

    public void DeleteOneWay(DeleteClientRequest request)
    {
        _clients = _clients.Where(x => x.Id != request.Id).ToList();
    }

    public object Get(GetClientRequest request)
    {
        Client client = _clients.Single(x => x.Id == request.Id);
        return new ClientResponse { Id = client.Id, Email = client.Email };
    }

    public object Post(CreateClientRequest request)
    {
        var client = new Client
        {
            Id = Guid.NewGuid(),
            Email = request.Email
        };
        _clients.Add(client);
        return new ClientResponse { Id = client.Id, Email = client.Email };
    }

    public object Put(UpdateClientRequest request)
    {
        Client client = _clients.Single(x => x.Id == request.Id);
        client.Email = request.Email;
        return new ClientResponse { Id = client.Id, Email = client.Email };
    }
}

Simple SOAP Message based Client

var client = new SoapServiceClient("NeliburSoapService");

var createRequest = new CreateClientRequest
    {
        Email = "email@email.com"
    };
ClientResponse response = client.Post<ClientResponse>(createRequest);

var updateRequest = new UpdateClientRequest
    {
        Email = "new@email.com",
        Id = response.Id
    };
response = client.Put<ClientResponse>(updateRequest);

var getClientRequest = new GetClientRequest
    {
        Id = response.Id
    };
response = client.Get<ClientResponse>(getClientRequest);

var deleteRequest = new DeleteClientRequest
    {
        Id = response.Id
    };
client.Delete(deleteRequest);

Simple SOAP Message based service on the pure WCF

WCF's ServiceContract

[ServiceContract]
public interface ISoapService
{

    [OperationContract(Action = SoapServiceMetadata.Action.Process,
        ReplyAction = SoapServiceMetadata.Action.ProcessResponse)]
    Message Process(Message message);

    [OperationContract(Action = SoapServiceMetadata.Action.ProcessOneWay)]
    void ProcessOneWay(Message message);
}

WCF's SOAP service

[ServiceBehavior(InstanceContextMode = InstanceContextMode.PerCall)]
public sealed class SampleSoapService : ISoapService
{
    public Message Process(Message message)
    {
        return NeliburSoapService.Process(message);
    }

    public void ProcessOneWay(Message message)
    {
        NeliburSoapService.ProcessOneWay(message);
    }
}

Request binding on appropriate Processor

NeliburSoapService.Configure(x =>
{
    x.Bind<CreateClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
    x.Bind<UpdateClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
    x.Bind<DeleteClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
    x.Bind<GetClientRequest, ClientProcessor>();
});

ClientProcessor is the same as for RESTful

public sealed class ClientProcessor : IPost<CreateClientRequest>,
									 IGet<GetClientRequest>,
									 IDeleteOneWay<DeleteClientRequest>,
									 IPut<UpdateClientRequest>
{
    private static List<Client> _clients = new List<Client>();

    public void DeleteOneWay(DeleteClientRequest request)
    {
        _clients = _clients.Where(x => x.Id != request.Id).ToList();
    }

    public object Get(GetClientRequest request)
    {
        Client client = _clients.Single(x => x.Id == request.Id);
        return new ClientResponse { Id = client.Id, Email = client.Email };
    }

    public object Post(CreateClientRequest request)
    {
        var client = new Client
        {
            Id = Guid.NewGuid(),
            Email = request.Email
        };
        _clients.Add(client);
        return new ClientResponse { Id = client.Id, Email = client.Email };
    }

    public object Put(UpdateClientRequest request)
    {
        Client client = _clients.Single(x => x.Id == request.Id);
        client.Email = request.Email;
        return new ClientResponse { Id = client.Id, Email = client.Email };
    }
}
