GZip Encoder Sample

The GZip Encoder sample demonstrates how to create a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) extensibility point. This sample, which is available only in Visual C#, creates an encoder channel that uses the System.IO.Compression.GZipStream class to compress outgoing WCF messages.

For information about using the samples, see the following topics:
