Hi Experts,

     I have a WCF service hosted in a windows service with http binding using XML format for the messaging.  How do I change it from XML to JSON?

Thanks in advance...

Decorate your wcf method with this

[WebInvoke(Method = "GET",
           RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,
           ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json,
           UriTemplate = "<method name>")]


Also you to have add in your config is "<webHttp/>" if it is not there .This should part of "behaviorConfiguration" value.

Where would I add this exactly?  In the contract on the server side?

Yes thats correct the attribute needs to be above your method, this can be either on the proxy implementation or on the method directly
