I read several articles, threads that ASMX and WCF both being obsolete.
Can someone confirm? any article/disclaimer by MicroSoft what to use and what not??

WCF effectively replaced the old ASMX approach to building web services. Since then, Web API is the recommended tool for delivering services over HTTP.
Microsoft have not officially deprecated WCF or ASMX, or made either obsolete. You can still add both using the latest version of Visual Studio. WCF and ASMX are still supported because they form part of the .NET framework.
Microsoft don't tend to make frameworks
obsolete. They realise that people have used them to build applications that cannot be updated to a latest version, but might still need new features added to them. There are likely to be a lot of ASP.NET 1.1 applications still
out there - especially in the corporate sector.
However, this doesn't tend to stop bloggers who are looking for attention to declare that something is "dead", because a new improved approach has been released.
