json200Many of the large internet corporations such as Yahoo and Google have JSON working with their servers, there is even an website that sends back Cat Facts in JSON format!

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is an open standard to exchange data. It is language independant and is used for data to move between clients and servers. It is an alternative to XML and has name:value pairs.

Examples include parsing, creating, walking through children, arrays, and more. Both Classic and New Framework examples are provided. Many screen grabs have been added to show the results of code with an index to help find topics quickly.
