While search some interesting and innovating technological stuff on the web, I bumped into 2 articles regarding performance comparison between the classic .NET Remoting (published by Microsoft some years ago) and between WCF technology that ships as part of the .NET Framework 3.0.
The first one has being published by Marcin Celej that claims that: "Sending DataSet with .NET Remoting is faster (in any of cases I tested) than sending it with WCF".
On the other hand, MSDN published also a comparison article, and the evidences were other than the above ones: "When migrating distributed applications written with ... .NET Remoting to WCF, the performance is at least comparable to the other existing Microsoft distributed communication technologies ... WCF is ... approximately 25% faster than .NET Remoting".
Graphs and schemes were published to illustrate the great findings by each one of them.
I am a fan of Microsoft technologies - I admit it, but this issue sounds interesting and worth testing not? What do you think about it?
