Json is also commonly used for storing data in databases and for configuration files. It is an alternative to XML (Extensible Markup Language), another popular format for transmitting and storing data. Json has become a popular format for data exchange because it is less bulky than XML and easier to read and write.
Some related technologies that are often used together with Json are:
REST (Representational State Transfer): An architectural style for building Web APIs based on the use of Http methods and a set of constraints for building scalable and maintainable Web services. REST is often used in conjunction with JSON to create web APIs that are easy to use and can be accessed from many different programming languages.
Json-LD (JSON for Linked Data): A format for expressing linked data using Json. With Json-LD, data can be expressed in Json format, but links to other resources on the web are added. This enables the creation of rich, interconnected data sets that can be easily integrated with other applications.
BITS experts have used Json in a variety of projects. A selection of case studies and references can be found below.
