Deserializing a JSON into a JavaScript object

To Deserialize a JSON into a JavaScript object, here we will use a common method JSON.parse() method.

JavaScript Object Notation is used to exchange data to or from a web server or RESTFull API. The data received from a web server is always a string. In order to use that data you need to parse the data with JSON.parse() which will returns a JavaScript Object or Array of Objeccts.

Syntax:



JSON.parse( string, function )
