JSON - Comparison with XML

Advertisements


JSON and XML are human readable formats and are language independent. They both have support for creation, reading and decoding in real world situations. We can compare JSON with XML based on the following factors:

Verbose

XML is more verbose than JSON, so it's faster to write JSON for humans.

Arrays Usage

XML is used to describe structured data which doesn't include arrays whereas JSON include arrays.

Parsing

JavaScript's eval method parses JSON. When applied to JSON, eval returns the described object.

Example

This shows individual examples of XML and JSON:

JSON

{
   "company": Volkswagen,
   "name": "Vento",
   "price": 800000
}

XML

<car>
   <company>Volkswagen</company>
   <name>Vento</name>
   <price>800000</price>
</car>
