JSON (JavaScript Object Notation)


From a programing and systems background I like the compactness of JSON (as opposed to XML), but until recently felt that it didn't have the same weight as XML.  I was pleased to hear potential development partners suggest it as a data interchange.

I first used JSON to exchange website search results (backend PHP and frontend Javascript) in 2007, in 2008 I used it with another developer to exchange data between 2 different PHP applications.

I've consumed JSON'd data on the National Rail website with an Android App.

With PHP I've used:

  • The PEAR Services_JSON package
  • Builtin PHP functions (post 5.2.0)

With JAVA I've used:

  • org.json.JSONArray / org.json.JSONObject
