What Is JSON, Complete Introduction To JSON

Json » On Feb 1, 2012 { 4 Comments } By Sivateja

JSON is JavaScript Object Notation [ it’s the damn default definition :-) ], and was invented by Douglas Crockford. Actually JSON is lightweight alternative to XML, language and platform independent script. Even JSON parsers & libraries are exists for many programming languages.

Converting JSON text to something in JavaScript will takes one line of code by using eval function ;) , to create an object from JSON text, just pass the string to eval function after surrounding the text with parentheses that’s it.

Creating JSON Object From JSON text

  • The variable names will hold the JSON text
  • Whole JSON text must be surrounded by quotes

Convert This Variable (names) Into JavaScript object

Actually we can convert JSON text into JavaScript object with eval function. eval() is the JavaScript function which converts JSON text into an JavaScript object, see this…

How To Access This JSON Object

Now you can print the values…

Note: Index always start from zero

Rather using eval() function It is safer to use a JSON parser to convert a JSON text to a JavaScript object. A JSON parser will recognize only JSON text and will not compile scripts, will see the complete example in the next tutorial.
