JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a prominent data interchange format used by various applications to transfer data over the network. JSON(JavaScript Object Notation) [1-2] is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. JSON has characteristics of being small in size and faster transmission speed as compared to the other popular data interchange format i.e. XML[3]. In one of the papers author did a quantitative and qualitative comparison of around twelve libraries including JSON wherein it was shown that JSON performs better than XML [4]. There have been studies wherein translation of XML to JSON has been discussed to improve transmission speed [5]. JSON is based on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition – December 1999. The JSON format is such that it requires use of delimiters to separate out the keys from the values as well as multiple key-value pairs from each other. Additionally the JSON format requires use of escape characters to be used along with special characters which are part of the data string.
