serialization in the context of ASP.NET MVC, jquery, (POCOs) NHibernate

I am currently using these technologies:

- front-end jquey (V)
- ASP.NET MVC (to expose restful APIs secured with forms validation) (C)
- NHibernate to persist POCOs (M)

I have played around a bit with serialisation of complicated HTML forms (using JSON.stringify etc.) and some temp objects that use DataContract, DataMember etc., which in turn are used to initialise the POCOs. This all feels all a bit clumsy and I am wondering whether there are any exhaustive articles, blogs, books on this subject (serialization using the above technologies) to 'glue' things together nicely.

Any pointers would be very much appreciated. Many thanks.

Best wishes,

Hi Christian

I develop using a very similar list - ASP.NET MVC/NHibernate/Castle Windsor/JQuery and Yahoo YUI.

I don't tend to use my POCOs directly in my views instead I generally have a view specific model which is designed just for that view - this avoids view design infuluencing domain design. Depending on the scenario I either render my view model server side or I render some of the view server side and then use JQuery to make ajax calls back to the controller to get JSON objects which can then me manipulated client side. For these JQuery calls I use a JsonResult to return a serialised JSON object.

To get from my domain POCOs to my View Models I use AutoMapper
