See the table of contents for more information. In this series we've started with a new loan class, that contains information about a loan, including the total amount due, how much is to be paid per payment, the interest rate, and etcetera. A method is available that will generate information about the number of payments required to pay off the loan. In the second part we created a WCF WebHttp service, or a WCF REST service, to use the class/assembly from that loan object and return XML data for GET requests.

I know I should know them better so I've been looking into WCF Web services, with a heavy lean towards an implementation based on REST principles. After a good deal of research, where it was highly suggested that while ASP.NET MVC may make sense, WCF is still the way to go for Web services, I stumbled upon WCF WebHttp Services, which uses functionality released in .NET 4. After a painless install via Visual Studio 2010's Extension Manager (more information), and troubleshooting a stupid mistake on my end, I was able to quickly create a Web service that uses an assembly I had created to parse one of my iTunes Playlists to Xml files and return a listing of tracks for a particular artist.
