JSON Training Institute

JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation. JSON objects are used for transferring data between server and client, XML serves the same purpose. However JSON objects have several advantages over XML and we are going to discuss them in this tutorial along with JSON concepts and its usages.

Features of JSON:

  • ✔️It is light-weight
  • ✔️It is language independent
  • ✔️Easy to read and write
  • ✔️Text based, human readable data exchange format

WHY Use Json?

  • ✔️Standard Structure: As we have seen so far that JSON objects are having a standard structure that makes developers job easy to read and write code, because they know what to expect from JSON.

  • ✔️Light weight: When working with AJAX, it is important to load the data quickly and asynchronously without requesting the page re-load. Since JSON is light weighted, it becomes easier to get and load the requested data quickly.

  • ✔️Scalable: JSON is language independent, which means it can work well with most of the modern programming language. Let’s say if we need to change the server side language, in that case it would be easier for us to go ahead with that change as JSON structure is same for all the languages.
