Web apps, give thanks.
Without JSON and XML, cloud computing would be much less practical than it is today. These two languages are much more than just acronyms; they allow us to use web apps in real-time, saving us time and oodles of frustration. JSON and XML help make the cloud a serious contender against traditional software.
Objects (the “O” in JSON) refers to the collection of name value pairs (also called associative array).
The ordered list of values: Array/Vector List/Sequence:
- Number: Single decimal number
- String: Sequence of zero or more Unicode characters
- Boolean: True or false statement
- Array: Ordered list of zero or more values
XML: eXensible Markup Language
Similarly to JSON, XML is designed to store and transfer data inside of a web application, or between two different a web applications (through the use of an Application Program Interface). Whereas a language like HTML is primarily used to display data, XML is mainly designed for the carriage of data.
XML is a Unicode, textual based data format and is the most commonly used tool for the pushing of data between web applications on the internet. In the data carriage process XML can, store the data, structure the data and transport the data. Since XML is a carriage application it is useless without the ability to interface with a web application by which it carries out the transportation process.JSON and XML
