Ajax Question

How to send parameters with jquery $.get()

I'm trying to do a jquery GET and i want to send a parameter.

here's my function:

$(function() {
var availableProductNames;
$.get("manageproducts.do?option=1", function(data){
availableProductNames = data.split(",");;
alert(availableProductNames);
$("#nameInput").autocomplete({
source: availableProductNames
});
});
});


This doesn't seem to work; i get a null in my servlet when i use
request.getParameter("option")
;

If i type the link into the browser http://www.myite.com/manageproducts.do?option=1 it works perfectly.

I also tried:

$.get(
"manageproducts.do?",
{option: "1"},
function(data){}


which doesn't work either.

Can you please help me?

EDIT:

also tried

$.ajax({
type: "GET",
url: "manageproducts.do",
data: "option=1",
success: function(msg){
availableProductNames = msg.split(",");
alert(availableProductNames);
$("#nameInput").autocomplete({
source: availableProductNames
});
}
});


Still getting the same result.

Answer

If you say that it works with accessing directly manageproducts.do?option=1 in the browser then it should work with:

$.get('manageproducts.do', { option: '1' }, function(data) {
    ...
});

as it would send the same GET request.
