Serialization using Json.NET with JsonSerializerSettings

suggest change

This serializer has some nice features that the default .net json serializer doesn’t have, like Null value handling, you just need to create the JsonSerializerSettings :

public static string Serialize(T obj)
{
   string result = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(obj, new JsonSerializerSettings { NullValueHandling = NullValueHandling.Ignore});
   return result;
}

Another serious serializer issue in .net is the self referencing loop. In the case of a student that is enrolled in a course, its instance has a course property and a course has a collection of students that means a List<Student> which will create a reference loop. You can handle this with JsonSerializerSettings :

public static string Serialize(T obj)
{
   string result = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(obj, new JsonSerializerSettings { ReferenceLoopHandling = ReferenceLoopHandling.Ignore});
   return result;
}

You can put various serializations option like this:

public static string Serialize(T obj)
{
   string result = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(obj, new JsonSerializerSettings { NullValueHandling = NullValueHandling.Ignore, ReferenceLoopHandling = ReferenceLoopHandling.Ignore});
   return result;
}
