Manish Agrawal My Experiments with Technology..

For quiet some time, I wanted to understand JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) and its advantages.

Always after hearing about it, I thought, it is some advance form of JavaScript, but after studying it today, I was surprised to know the advantages of JSON.

In the present world, where companies are providing SAAS (Software Applications As Services) over the Web, and applications are mashing-up with other applications... in such scenarios everyone wants to make applications, to be able to exchange data with other applications seamlessly and as fast as it can.

Seamless integration of data was made possible by XML, but it seriously lacked the speed. Over and above it, XML required specific Serialization and De-Serialization  of content. This is were JSON has the real advantage over XML and it doesn't compromise on the other advantages of XML.

More information on JSON can be found at the following links:
