What does JSON mean?

JSON, or JavaScript Object Notation, is an open standard format that uses human-readable text to transmit data objects consisting of attribute–value pairs. It is used primarily to transmit data between a server and web application, as an alternative to XML. Although originally derived from the JavaScript scripting language, JSON is a language-independent data format, and code for parsing and generating JSON data is readily available in a large variety of programming languages. The JSON format was originally specified by Douglas Crockford, and is described in RFC 4627 and ECMA-404. The official Internet media type for JSON is application/json. The JSON filename extension is .json.
