If you want to try the JSON Validation Tool at jsonlint.com, you can follow this tutorial:

1. Go to the The JSON Validator page at jsonlint.com.

2. Enter the following JSON text string in the text area:

{
  "firstName": "John",
  "lastName": "Smith",
  "isAlive": true,
  "age": 25,
  "address": {
    "streetAddress": "21 2nd Street",
    "city": "New York",
    "state": "NY",
    "postalCode": "10021-3100",
  },
  "phoneNumbers": [
    {
      "type": 'home',
      "number": "212 555-1234"
    },
    {
      "type": "office",
      "number": "646 555-4567"
    },
  ],
  "children": [],
  "spouse": null
}

3. Click the "Validate JSON" button. You see the following output near the bottom:

Error: Parse error on line 10:
...de": "10021-3100",	},	"phoneNumbers": 
----------------------^
Expecting 'STRING', got '}'

Note that this tool correctly detected the first error in the JSON text string. An extra comma is at the end of the property list.
