Introduction to JSON

  • Joe Lennon


Documents in a CouchDB database are, put simply, data structures defined using JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). In this chapter, you will learn all about JSON. Starting with the basics, you will learn what exactly JSON is and how it works. You will see the different data types that a JSON object can work with, and then you’ll get your hands dirty by creating JSON structures and testing them using JavaScript and a web browser. You will then investigate how CouchDB uses JSON, providing you with the knowledge you need to leverage the simplicity and power of this format in your CouchDB applications.
