jquery.getJSON calls error BUT 200 OK is returned by service

Hi all,

I'm developping plugins for Jira 5.1. Actually, I need to use json data returned from a rest service.

I have the following code:

jQuery.getJSON("http://myhost.xx/myservice")
	    	.success(function(data){
	    		alert("success!!!!!!");	    		
	    	})
	    	.error(function(jqXhr, textStatus, error) {
	    		alert("ERROR: " + textStatus + ", " + error);
	    	});

The funny thing is that, even I can see a correct response (200 accept, correct content type (text/json), correct body) with my http debugger (Fiddler), I only enter the "error" handler and I see "OK" for both textStatus and error parameters, ending in displaying the alert "ERROR: OK, OK" in my browser...

Any idea? Is there any known bug with the javascript shipped with Jira 5.1?

Thanks a lot !

Fixed, using a JSONP query type, and after transforming the backend, it works better

Exact same behavior using AJS.$() instead of jQuery()

Works perfectly fine with jQuery v1.4.4

Have seen something very similar before. Can't remember the solution - but try using jQuery.ajax instead of getJSON, with "dataType:'json'"

same behavior...

although its an old post but it might help others.I was having the same problem and i found out the data i am getting from server was not in correct json format so it was giving me error.i fixed that and the thing got fixed
