This is one of the great pain relief if you ever wondered how would you debug WCF Service using Visual Studio ;)

Visual Studio 2008 allows you to debug WCF Services by exposing the service in the local ASP.NET development server!

Here is an excellent screencast on Debugging WCF using VS 2008 by Darryl

As I had told in my earlier post, that I would be moving my WCF Service from VS 2005 to VS 2008 and since I use VS 2008 now, am able to debug my service locally as well as hosting it via my local IIS 7. I have moved my debugging to IIS 7 from local ASP.NET development server.

Below is screenshot of everything in place :D
