Writing JSON data back to client

I am following the steps given here to create an AJAX application using Dojo.

I have a java object : PaneLayout which I convert to JSONObject


In my JSP:


In CreateForm servlet:

I am sending back the string form of JSONObject (created by converting a PaneLayout object, as shown above)



The 'getPaneInfo(id)' function is called and it sends the request to servlet alright but no data is coming in showProperty function. I checked the value of 'data' and that is 'false'. So each time 'Damn' is getting printed.

I don't understand what can be wrong in this. Am I doing anything wrong while sending the data? What else can be wrong?

Please help me with this. Any pointers will help.

Thanks.

Have you used a tool like Firebug to see what is being returned as the response of the Ajax request?

Thanks for that suggestion Bear. I used Firebug to monitor the entire call.

And I could solve the error also.
In my servlet I was doing "response.sendRedirect(sSendTo);" to the JSP. Removing it worked!
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
