Remarks

Apply the ContractNamespaceAttribute attribute to an assembly that contains types to which the DataContractAttribute has been applied. The ContractNamespaceAttribute enables you to set a namespace that is different than the one generated when the type is serialized.

If you are using a type to conform to an existing data contract, you must match the namespace of the existing contract by using the ContractNamespaceAttribute (or the Namespace property of the DataContractAttribute class).
