This sample demonstrates how to use the HttpClient and DataContractJsonSerializer class to post JSON data to a web service. It's easy to achieve this in WinJS realm. But there is no example that shows how to do this using HttpClient in the .NET applications. So we provide this sample hoping it will be helpful to you.
