Advantages of wcf service over web services.

As several people asking me the WCF benefits over web services, I outlined the points here

1.WCF supports more of WS-* standards than web services

2.As I mentioned in the article WCF supports multiple bindings HTTP,TCP,MSMQ,WS-HTTP etc where as web service supports only HTTP.

3.WCF can maintain transactions like COM+

4.It has JSON integration

5.It can be hosted on IIS,WAS, Self hosting and windows services

6.Web services have no instance management ie you can not have a singleton web service or session full webservice
