What is JSON?
JSON is a standard data-interchange text format consisting of key-value pairs and arrays. JSON is straightforward to read and write and easy for software solutions to parse and generate. As a result, it is frequently used for serializing structured data when exchanging it over a network, such as between servers and web applications. In addition, Unicode encoding makes this messaging format universally accessible.
JSON is less verbose than, for example, XML, and thanks to its mapped structure, its parsing is fast. It is machine-readable as well as human-readable when pretty printed. JSON can be used with any programming language, as mapping domain objects is very straightforward. Because JSON is platform-independent, it is a common log format.
