+1 for JSON as a first choice, XML as a second if a small enough parser can be found/written to fit into the core.
-1 for YAML and other significant-whitespace formats; I agree with the comments about fragility.
-1000 for module-info.class and other binary formats. The seems like a no-brainer to me. The only reason to use it appears to be that the parser is already present in the core, though as David points out that parser is ordinarily not accessible to applications.
