The System.Runtime.Serialization namespace contains classes that can be used for serializing objects to JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) and deserializing objects from JSON.

Serialization is the process of converting an object or a graph of objects into a linear sequence of bytes for either storage or transmission to another location. Deserialization is the process of taking in stored information and re-creating objects from it.
