JSON is an acronym for JavaScript Object Notation. Simply put, it is a schema that can be used to transport data over the internet. It it very simple to understand and to use, as it can be read in a very englishy way.


Here are a few examples of JSON objects:


- Defines an object that has a property called "Name".

{

"Name" : "Albert"

}


- Defines and object that two properties. One called "Id", and another called "Numbers".

"Numbers" is an array of int's.

{

"Id" : "123456",

"Numbers" : [1,2,3,4,5,6]

}


- Defines an object that has a property called "data". "data" is an array of objects with two properties.

"FirstName" and "LastName".

{

"data" : [

{

"FirstName" : "Bob",

"LastName" : "Bobson"

},

{

"FirstName" : "Tim",

"LastName" : "Timson"

}

]

}


See simple...

Well I hope that this has helped you to understand what JSON is.
