ASP.NET: Web Service or WCF for simple ajax call?

I just want to simply call a method on my web service via ajax and have it return a value.

Should I use "WCF Service" , "AJAX-Enabled WCF Service" , or "Web Service"

Which is the easiest?


You should use Ajax-Enabled WCF service. I don't remember the name exactly but it should be marked with an attribute to be accessible from JS.

Use a generic HTTP handler instead. They are simpler to code.
