Hi Jeff,

Are you finding JSON to be the preferred format for transmitting data in the industry over XML?

Thanks.

Hi Carl,

I agree with the author of "JSON vs. XML: The battle for format supremacy may be wasted energy" (https://sdtimes.com/communication-protocols/json-vs-xml-battle-format-supremacy-may-wasted-energy/) that JSON is preferred for data interchange, whereas XML is preferred for data modelling, and that they nicely complement each other. You might want to read this article if you haven't already.

Jeff
