Alternate Solution for JSON Serialization

You can use Json.NET library to serialize Entity FrameWork object. It is fast and more effective then given solution. JavascriptSerialization but it is taking more time then Json.NET.

You can find source code from :

Simple Example  

 using (FrameworkContainer fc = new FrameworkContainer()) //Entity Framework Object
                var realObject = fc.GetAccountInformation("AmitGajjar"); // Calling Entity Framework Function (SP)

                using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream())
                    var result = from account in realObject
                                 select new
                                     Name = account.Account_Name,
                                     City = account.Address1_City,
                                     Phone = account.Address1_Telephone
// serializedObject will be json object from entity
                    var serializedObject = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(result);

Hope this will help you to implement serialization very quickly.
