You would use JSON in FoxWeb applications for the exact same reasons and in the same situations as you would use it in any other web-based applications. JSON is primarily used as a lightweight format for exchanging data between the browser and the server in Ajax applications.
I don't want to go into depth explaining Ajax, because there are hundreds of sites devoted to this subject. Just look it up on the web, or get a good Ajax book. FoxWeb can be used to create Ajax applications, just as easily as any of the other more generalized server-side web application frameworks.

I read little bit about JSON, maybe 5 min
However, how do you use it in your fwx apps?
what purpose is it good for?
can someone that is using it give me a 60,000 feet level of how json is useful with fwx?
thanks in advance.
