json value

The json value type represents a JSON value. This can be any of the following:

  • String (double-quoted Unicode, with backslack escaping)
  • Number (double precision floating-point format in JavaScript)
  • Object (an unordered collection of key:value pairs with the ':' character separating the key and the value, comma separated and enclosed in curly braces. The keys must be strings and should be distinct from each other.)
  • Array (an ordered sequence of values, comma-separated and enclosed in square brackets; the values do not need to be of the same type)
  • Boolean (true or false)
  • null (empty)
