What is JSON?

 JSON stands for Javascript Object Notation. It is a special object notational construct and is a subset of JavaScript. It can be used wherever JavaScript can be used and you do not need to download anything. There is no need to worry about the version of JavaScript, It works with all JavaScript versions.

RFC 4627 describes all aspects of JSON. JSON was designed to be brief (small), textual, and portable. The MIME Media Type is now registered as application/json. JSON can handle exchanging data in applications written in different programming languages such as C, C#, ColdFusion, Perl, Python, Ruby, and so forth.

On getting JSON data from SQL Server read this interesting artilce by William Brewer.
