Data Exchange Format

  • HTTP supports multiple data formats, the need in the world of api’s is some format which is human readable, simple and occupying minimum size
  • JSON is the best fit for this. JSON stands for JavaScript Object Notation.

  • The data can be split into following categories

    • Simple:
      • numbers
      • text
      • boolean
    • Complex:
      • list/array => Plural
      • object/dictionary
  • JSON format is representing the data as name/value pairs
<name>: <value>
  • Some examples are

"place": "hyderabad"
"count": 5
"online": true
