The data in the RESTful web service is mainly represented in XML or JSON form.

XML (Extensible Markup Language) is used to store and transfer data.

JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is used to serialize and transfer data. It is lighter than XML and can transfer the same amount of data as the XML with less bandwidth.
