What is XML, and why is XML used?


XML is a traditional way to transfer data on the internet. XML stands for Extensible Markup Language (XML). It stores the data in a format that is easily readable for humans and machines.

It is case-sensitive and designed to carry the data, not to display the data. It provides a set of rules for encoding the documents in a readable format for humans and machines.

In XML, the tags are not predefined, like in the HTML. You define the tags, and these tags carry the data and make data transfer possible.

XML simplifies the data storing and transporting by storing the data in plain-text format and facilitates its availability. The XML format makes the data available to all machines and humans.


What is JSON, and why is JSON used?


JSON stands for "JavaScript Object Notation." It is the text written in JS object notation that provides a lightweight data-interchange format.

When we have to communicate between the browser and the server, the data can only be text. The JSON is a text format, and we can convert the Javascript data into JSON format and send it to the server. Whatever the response that we receive from the server, we can alter that JSON data response to Javascript format.

JavaScript has a built-in function JSON.parse() to convert a JSON format string into JavaScript objects.

That is why most web services and APIs rely on JSON to provide public data. JSON uses the standards of the JS language only. It does not depend upon the Javascript language because it does not require Javascript as a dependency for processing. That is why it is an independent language.
