Make your WCF service’s Operation/Method Fire and Forget

September 10, 2014 Leave a comment

There are cases when an operation has no returned values and the client does not care about the success or failure of the invocation.

To support this sort of fire-and-forget invocation, WCF offers one-way operations.

It’s simple to implement. We just need to add “IsOneWay” property to ‘true’ to the [OperationContract] property.


interface IWCFContract


[OperationContract(IsOneWay = true)]

void HelloWorld()


Note : The Operation Contract must have a “void” return type without any outgoing parameters.
