How does WCF resolve which concrete class is used when its service is called?

I began my WCF web service with the standard Service.cs and IService.cs.  I have since made enhancements to the individual methods (OperationContracts) in a new MyService.cs file that also inherits from IService.cs.

I looked through the App.Config and found that the "contract" being referenced is the interface class but see no code, yet, that choses which concrete implementation class should be used when its called.

Does ,NET WCF always call the use the class that is the same name as the interfaces(minus the "I")?

No it is not always just the minus. You can have any name for your concrete class.

You can use a concrete class as service contract but below are the benefits you get when using interfaces. All your .svc file markup has attribute "Service" which points to the class implements the service. So when you use the address to create proxy class using "add reference" or  client channel factory, run time knows which class to invoke.


•Service contract interfaces can extend any number of other service contract interfaces.
• A single class can implement any number of service contracts by implementing those service contract interfaces.
• You can modify the implementation of a service contract by changing the interface implementation, while the service contract remains the same.
• You can version your service by implementing the old interface and the new one. Old clients connect to the original version, while newer clients can connect to the newer version.

In short, It is resolved from the fully qualified service name specified in the configuration that is implementing the service contract specified in the configuration.

You do not need to use the same name but what ever the name you use, your service configuration should be updated accordingly.
