JSON (JavaScript Object Notation)-  A lightweight data-interchange format which is completely language independent. It is based on the JavaScript programming language and easy to generate.

A JSON file will look something like this:-


    { "firstName":"Priyaj", "lastName":"Kumar" },
    { "firstName":"Omkar", "lastName":"Hiremath" },
    { "firstName":"Kalgi", "lastName":"Shah" },


XML(Extensible Markup Language)- It is used to carry data and not display data. XML is a markup language that is used to define a set of rules for encoding the document in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable.

The XML file will look something like this:-

        <firstName>Priyaj</firstName> <lastName>Kumar</lastName> 
        <firstName>Omkar</firstName> <lastName>Hiremath</lastName> 
        <firstName>Kalgi</firstName> <lastName>Shah</lastName>
