Subject Re: JQuery based client: Help needed
Date Wed, 17 Mar 2010 14:55:47 GMT
Hi Dick,

Would love to help. API2 is my favorite topic :-)

Are you trying to do this from within the web interface? Within a
browser? If so, then I think your requests will already have a session
attached. If not, then you should take the contents of the response
from your post to api2/session and include the value in the header of
your subsequent requests. I don't think this is native JQuery
functionality, but we can work through it.

Also, the API2 returns XML, not JSON, so you should probably use the
generic get/post methods and specify the content type as "xml".

Did the code you have below work for you or were you having an issue with it?
