JSON Object

JSON object holds key/value pair. Each key is represented as a string in JSON and value can be of any type. The keys and values are separated by colon. Each key/value pair is separated by comma.

The curly brace { represents JSON object.

Let’s see an example of JSON object.

In the above example, employee is an object in which “name”, “salary” and “married” are the key. In this example, there are string, number and boolean value for the keys.
