JSON example


JSON, otherwise known as JavaScript Object Notation, is a structure used to store and describe multiple objects. Although it was originally used in JavaScript, JSON is language-independent and can be used in nearly any application. JSON is also a lightweight data-interchange format and can be used to send data between computers. Objects are stored using keys and values.


  • In short, JSON is used to transmit data between web applications.
  • For example, sending data from the server to the client.
  • For instance, having the server tell and transmit data to the client to display a picture.
  • In addition, substitutable with XML.
