See more: C# WCF JSON
I have a WCF service contract defined as follows:

        UriTemplate =
        ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
    HubResults GetHubContent(string language, string appType);

In the implmentation of this contract in the service, I return a List of objects that gets parsed out in JSON. However whenever one of the properties of the objects is a URL or any string that contains forward slashes the JSON that is returned by the service in the browser escapes the forward slashes. So this url:- will look like this


Is there something I need to specify maybe in the contract related to formatting to rectify this ?

I just found out that a JSON parser will read the above URL just fine. Problem solved.
