(Thanks Atsushi.) So I'm going ahead with the SoapFormatter. However, I have found out that a .NET2.0 WebService by default serializes my objects using normal XmlSerializer. Is there any configuration setting for it to use the SoapFormatter when returning a [Serializable] object from my [WebMethod]? BTW, I would also like to call a "SanityCheck()" method for every object that is returned from my webmethods before sending them. Can this be done without AOP?
