JSON

‘JavaScript Object Notation’ (JSON) is an open-standard file format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairsand array data types(or any other serializablevalue).

It is a very common data format used for asynchronous browser–server communication, including as a replacement for XMLin some AJAX-style systems.
