add JSON (de)serialization optimized for DataObjects.Net
Never mind... with MVC 4 web api it is possible to return values with the dynamic type which allows you to return anonymous types so you can narrow down your results to the exact format you like.
Actually, since we have DataObjects.Net and since we have jQuery, I prefer not to use ASP.Net controls anymore because a) the rich server-side development is very rich and for that we pay the price by performance. IMHO the main activity of a web-server these days should be providing (JSON) data being parsed clientside with something like jQuery or Mootools or whatever you prefer as a developer. Therefore, if DataObjects.Net would provide ways to provide a JSON facade, DataObjects would become an Ultimate (!) data provider for online applications. Maybe supporting the ODATA (http://www.odata.org/) would be an idea with this... just brain-farting a bit here! ;)
Thanks for reporting that. Are there any possibility to use Key.Format & Key.Parse methods for serializing/deserializing the value of a key?
AFAIK, Newton JSON.NET provides the ability to invoke some custom serialization handlers by marking a method with [OnSerializing], etc. attributes
