Remarks

This attribute is similar to the DataContractFormatAttribute attribute. Both attributes can be applied to either a method or a class.

A method can have either of the two attributes applied, but not both. Any operation that has neither applied uses the attribute applied to the containing class. If the containing class does not have either attribute applied, the DataContractSerializer is used by default.
