JSON name collision when using jQuery.ajax()

Reported by: jhill9693@… Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.next
Component: ajax Version: 1.4.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


Version: jQuery 1.4.2 Browser: Firefox 3.6.13 with Firebug 1.6.1 OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, x64

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Set up a server-side handler to send the following JSON data:
  1. Perform a jQuery.ajax() call:
    cache: false,
    type:  'POST',
    url:   'http://url-to-your-application',
    data:  {},
    dataType: 'json',
    error: function(e, xhr) {
    success: function(data, textStatus, XMLHttpRequest) {

Expected result:

An alert box with the word 'success'

Actual result:

An alert box with the word 'error'


The "result" property in the JSON object seems to be the problem. Changing it to "r" allows jQuery to parse the JSON correctly.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug report. As you didn't provide a live test case on  http://jsfiddle.net I made one my self.  live test case but I couldn't reproduce your problem.

Please report back if you can provide a reproducible test case and request the reopening of this ticket and we will happily investigate this issue further.
