JSON

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a lightweight data interchange format. It is based on JavaScripts object literal notation.

 

Although JSON is a subset of JavaScript, it is language independent. It can be used to exchange data between programs written in all modern programming languages. It is a text format, so it is readable by both humans and machines.  It is easy to implement and easy to use.

 

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is an open standard developed by Douglas Crockford, author of , JavaScript : The Good Parts , that specifies a subset of the native JavaScript object-literal syntax for use in data representation, communication, and storage.

 

Prior to the JSON specification, most client-server communications were being delivered in much more verbose XML snippets. JavaScript developers often work with JSON web services and frequently define internal data using JSON syntax.
