WCF web service definition file.

A .svc file is a text file, which contains the information required to allow a WCF service to run. The contents of the file indicate:

  1. The development language used to create the web service. This is typically C# or VB.
  2. The name of the service.
  3. Where the code for the service resides.

.svc files are widely regarded as the successor to .asmx (web services source) files.
