An example of where this is used is web services responses. In the ‘old’ days, web services used XML as their primary data format for transmitting back data, but since JSON appeared (The JSON format is specified in RFC 4627 by Douglas Crockford), it has been the preferred format because it is much more lightweight
json is built on two structures:
A collection of name/value pairs. In various languages, this is realized as an object, record, struct, dictionary, hash table, keyed list, or associative array.
An ordered list of values. In most languages, this is realized as an array, vector, list, or sequence.
“streetAddress”: “21 2nd Street”,
“city”: “New York”,
Short for Comma-separated values, CSV is tabular data that has been saved as plaintext data separated by commas.
For example, if you had a table similar to the below example, that data would be converted to the data shown below the table.
Why are CSV files used?
There are two primary reasons CSV files are used online.
CSV files are plain-text files, which makes them easy for the website developer to create.
Because the CSV is plain-text it makes the data easy to import into any Spreadsheet program or database regardless of what type of computer or software program you are using.
