- error recovery in case of network failure or ill-formed JSON responses,
- precise control over callback naming and how it is transmitted in the URL,
- multiple requests with the same callback name running concurrently,
- two caching mechanisms (browser-based and page based),
- the possibility to manually abort the request just like any other AJAX request,
- a timeout mechanism.
jQuery-JSONP publishes a $.ajax()-like function called $.jsonp(): similarity ensures programmers get up-to-speed easily.
For instance, as of version 2.3.0, $.jsonp() returns a promise when used in conjunction with jQuery 1.5+.
jQuery-JSONP has been tested and runs within all major browsers, namely:
- Internet Explorer 6+
- Firefox 2+
- Chrome 1+
- Safari 3+
- Opera 9+
jQuery-JSONP has also been tested with jQuery 1.3.x up to 1.7.x
