Transaction Protocols

As a developer we no need to concern about transaction protocols and transaction manager used by WCF. WCF itself will take care of what kind of transaction protocols should be used for different situation. Basically there are three different kinds of transaction protocols used by WCF.


  • Always create the service with Interface->Implementation format, mention the contract in Interface.
  • Define the service in Class library and refer the class library in Host project. Don’t use service class in host project.
  • Change the instance mode to per call as default.
  • Always catch exception using try/catch block and throw exception using FaultException < T >.
  • Logging and Include exception should be enable while compiling the project in debug mode. While in production deployment disable the logging and Include exception details.
