Again as is at the previous post I gonna use the IserializeService Contract. And the same DataTransferObject

:So, define the Contract Service and your DTO

public class InternalData


        public InternalData()



        public string internalValue;



    public class MyData



        public int PublicID { get; set; }


        private int PrivateID = 9999;


        public string Value;


        public InternalData referenceData { get; set; }

        public MyData()




public interface ISerializeService


        bool write(object data, Type type,string path);

        object read(string path,Type t);


Just noticed to the different, we have a special attribute DataContract and DataMember

The rule is simple, the class got DataContract, and any member who need to be serialized using DataMember, using this way we can easily mange the serialize member of the class

.And there is no different between public or private

:So the Implementation is like that

public class DataContractSerializeService : ISerializeService


        public bool write(object data, Type type , string path)


            FileStream writer = new FileStream(path, FileMode.Create);

            DataContractSerializer serializer =  new DataContractSerializer(type);

            serializer.WriteObject(writer, data);


            return true;


        public object read(string path, Type t)


            FileStream stream = new FileStream(path, FileMode.Open);

            XmlDictionaryReader reader =

            XmlDictionaryReader.CreateTextReader(stream, new


 DataContractSerializer serializer = new DataContractSerializer(t);

 object ReturnsData = (object)serializer.ReadObject(reader, true);



   return ReturnsData;


:The usage of this service is simple as we sow at previous post

serializer = new DataContractSerializeService();

serializer.write(dat, typeof(MyData));

yData GenertedData =

  (MyData)serializer.read("C://data2.txt", typeof(MyData));

    is there any other way to use dataContract ??
    what about Iserilizble Interface ?
    and this is the same interface of WCD isnt ??
