What is json sample data?

Asked 7 months ago

Does it matter if the dummy data I've generated is in json format? What are other format types I should consider using?

Json data, known as JavaScript Object Notation is a lightweight data-interchange format that is used to store and exchange structured data.

In other words, Json data is like a container that holds and stores data.

Although Json is one of the more popular format structure types, alternatives such as the following can be used:

  • XML (eXtensible Markup Language)
  • YAML (YAML Ain't Markup Language)
  • CSV (Comma-Separated Values)
  • Protocol Buffers (protobuf)
  • MessagePack

Each of the above has its own pros and cons. Which one you use will depend on the complexity of your data, what you want to use the data for, the system's compatibility with the data format, and of course your own preference.
