<1> Section 1.3:  The Windows implementation of this protocol is exercised in Windows Communication Foundation [MSDN-WCF] when ETW tracing [MSDN-ETW] is enabled on the client and the client is communicating with a WCF service over the HTTP transport. In this scenario, common message exchange patterns can include REST [MSDN-WCFREST] and SOAP [SOAP1.1]. For a sample demonstration on how to use the analytic tracing in WCF to emit events in ETW, see [MSDN-WCFETW].
