JSON format and data types

JSON Syntax:

JSON syntax is a subset of the JavaScript object notation syntax. JSON syntax has following rules:
1. Data is represented in name/value pairs.
2. Data is separated by commas.
3. Curly braces hold objects and each object name is followed by colon.
4. Square brackets hold arrays.

JSON example:

    {"firstName":"Sandy", "lastName":"Sethi"},
    {"firstName":"Roxy", "lastName":"Malik"},
    {"firstName":"Sunil", "lastName":"Antil"}

JSON datatypes:
