Abstract

RFC 7159 describes the JSON data interchange format, which is widely used in Internet protocols. For historical reasons, that specification allows the use of language idioms and text encoding patterns that are likely to lead to interoperability problems and software breakage, particularly when a program receiving JSON data uses automated software to map it into native programming-language structures or database records. RFC 7159 describes practices that may be used to avoid these interoperability problems.

Abstract

   I-JSON (short for "Internet JSON") is a restricted profile of JSON    designed to maximize interoperability and increase confidence that    software can process it successfully with predictable results.
