The best way to deal with JSON values in MySQL is to store them in a JSON data type column. This allows you to efficiently store, query, and manipulate JSON data directly in the database.


When working with JSON values in MySQL, you can use functions such as JSON_INSERT, JSON_REMOVE, JSON_REPLACE, and JSON_EXTRACT to manipulate the JSON data. You can also use JSON path expressions to query specific elements within the JSON data.


It is important to ensure that the JSON data is properly formatted and validated before storing it in the database to avoid errors or unexpected behavior. Additionally, consider adding indexes to the JSON columns if you frequently query or filter on specific JSON keys or values.


Overall, leveraging the built-in JSON support in MySQL and using the appropriate functions and techniques will help you effectively manage JSON values in your database.
