Just a snippet i use often so thought i would post it for easy access. It basically just grabs a JSON from the same server (remember AJAX only works on the same server, unless you use JSONP or have a Proxy pass in place).

Read more about Ajax and JSON.

(function($) {
	$.ajax({
		type: 'GET',
		url: 'data/data.json',
		async: false,
		datatype: 'JSON',
		success: function(data)
		{
			if (data) 
			{
				console.log(data);
			}
		}
	});
})(jQuery);
