Can someone please let me know whether it is possible to comment on a JSON file? If so please let me know how to do it.

    Technically JSON should contain ALL DATA. Your comment will also be considered as data.

    Following is an extracted example from This page.

       "_comment" : "comment text goes here...",
       "glossary": {
          "title": "example glossary",
          "GlossDiv": {
             "title": "S",
             "GlossList": {
                "GlossEntry": {
                   "ID": "SGML",
                   "SortAs": "SGML",
                   "GlossTerm": "Standard Generalized Markup Language",
                   "Acronym": "SGML",
                   "Abbrev": "ISO 8879:1986",
                   "GlossDef": {
                      "para": "A meta-markup language, used to create markup languages such as DocBook.",
                      "GlossSeeAlso": ["GML", "XML"]
                   "GlossSee": "markup"
