What Is JSON?

JSON is short for JavaScript Object Notation and it is a way to store information in an organized, easy-to-access manner.Json gives us a human readable code of data that human can access in a logical manner.

The following topics are addressed here:

  1. JSON Syntax.
  2. Data Type.

JSON defines two data structures: arrays and objects.
An object is a set of key and value pairs, and array is a list of values. JSON defines seven value types: object,array, string, number, true, false, and null.

The given example for JSON for the object that contains key and value pairs. The value for the name "firstName" is an object with the value "John" and The value for the name "phoneNumbers" is an array whose elements are two objects.

Sample JSON

                  "firstName": "John",
                  "lastName": "Smith",
                  "isAlive": true,
                  "age": 27,
                  "address": {
                    "streetAddress": "21 2nd Street",
                    "city": "New York",
                    "state": "NY",
                    "postalCode": "10021-3100"
                  "phoneNumbers": [
                      "type": "home",
                      "number": "212 555-1234"
                      "type": "office",
                      "number": "646 555-4567"
                  "children": [],
                  "spouse": null


JSON has the following syntax.

  1. Objects are enclosed by braces i.e. {} and their key and value pairs are separated by a comma (,), and the name and values are separated by a colon (:). Names in an object are always the string, and values may be of any of the seven value types, including another array or an object.
  2. Arrays are enclosed in brackets i.e. [], and their values are separated by a comma (,). Each value in an array can be of different type, including array or an object.
  3. When objects and arrays contain other arrays or objects, data Json has a tree-like structure.

Data types

JSON's basic data types are:

A signed decimal number that may contain a fractional part and may use exponential E notation, It cannot include non-numbers such as NaN. The format makes no distinction between floating point and integer. JavaScript uses a double precision / floating point pattern for all its numeric values, but other languages using JSON may use numbers differently.

A pattern of zero or more Unicode characters. Strings are delimited with double quotation marks and support a backslash escaping syntax.

Boolean is one of the values true or false.

An ordered list of zero or more elements, each of which may be of any type. Arrays defined by square brackets [] with comma separated ',' element list.

A collection of key and value pairs where the names (also called keys) are strings. Objects are intended to represent associative arrays,[6] where each key is unique within an object. Objects are defined with curly brackets {} and use commas ',' to separate each key value pair, in each key value pair colon ':' separates the key from its value.

A an empty value, using the word null.

Use of JSON

JSON is often used as common format to serialize and deserialize data in applications that communicates with each other via Internet. These applications are created using different programming languages and can be run in different suitable environments. JSON is suited to this scenario because it is an open standard, Json is easy to read and write and it is more compact than other representations.

RESTful web services use JSON as the format for the data inside requests - responses. The HTTP header is used to indicate that the content of a request or a response is JSON data is:

Content-Type: application/json

JSON representations are usually more compact data than XML representations because JSON does not have closing tags. Unlike XML, JSON does not have a widely accepted schema for defining and validating the structure of JSON data. Thus effectively reduces the length of data.
