When to use ASP.NET MVC to build out REST-ful services and when to use WCF
A common question that comes up is when to use ASP.NET MVC to build out REST-ful services and when to use WCF?
when the only reason for the service’s existence is to service the one application you’re currently building, it may make more sense would stick with the simple case of using ASP.NET MVC. This is commonly the case when the only client to your JSON service is your web application’s Ajax code.
When your service is intended to serve multiple clients (not just your one application) or hit large scale usage, then moving to a real services layer such as WCF may be more appropriate.
