What is JSON ?

The full form of JSON is JavaScript Object Notation. JSON is nothing but text, written with JavaScript object notation. It is easy for humans to read and write and also platform independent. JSON widely used for storing and exchanging data. As we know for transferring data between Web Browser and Server, data must be text only format. Previously XML was the only way to receive data from web server. But now JSON is handier( human readable) and so became more popular for data transferring as its text formatted, and we can convert any JavaScript object into JSON, and send JSON to the server.

Advantages Of JSON

JSON is a lightweight component. JSON is faster to read and write i.e (faster parsing). Unlike XML JSON doesn't use tag .i.e Start Tag, End Tag, JSON is smaller than the corresponding XML. JSON provides scalar data types and the ability to express structured data through arrays and objects.

JSON suits best for the Ajax-based Web application. AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. Ajax is a client-side script that communicates to and from a server/database. It allows you to send and receive data asynchronously without reloading the web page. JSON is more compact and can be load quicker in JavaScript.
