I’ve been using XML for quite a while now but I’ve noticed XML gets quite a lot slower when a huge array is included (for example the REST API: users/lookup with 90+ usernames).
Is it wiser to use json instead? If so, why should I do this?
A better question is: Is json really that much faster or did I just experience a small delay with XML?
My final question is about the time between a user update and xml/json file update.
Which one is updated faster, json or XML? With this I mean: when a user posts a new tweet, which file (json or XML) shows the new tweet sooner?
I’ve combined json and XML in my application at this moment but soon I want to change to the best/fastest type.
I’m more familiar with XML because I understand it’s structure better.
Any help is appreciated!
