JSON has been introduced as a lighter alternative to the XML for storing and exchanging structured information in the web domain. It is typically used with Ajax and REST web service technologies, providing less overhead and a lighter structure than the traditional XML. However, the problem with both JSON and XML is the usage of the binary content embedded in the wire formatted structures. This paper introduces a JUNC encoding method that tackles the excessive overhead as well as the slow encoding and decoding of more traditional binary-to-text encoding methods like Base64. JUNC takes into account the properties of the serialised JSON and is able to achieve better results faster than any other of the encoding methods tested.
