AngularJS Question

Is there a method in angularJS thats equal to getJSON. [Newbie alert]

I'm newbie at javascript, angularJS and JQuery, but I have just started programming a angularJS app where i use JQuery to get a JSON from a webserver like this:

var obj = $.getJSON( "http://something.com/lol?query="+ $scope.searchString, function() {
$scope.items = obj.responseJSON.entries;
}


Is there a method equal to $.getJSON in angularJS? So that I don't have to import the JQuery library.

Thanks in advance, newbie.

This is my solution so far:

function InstantSearchController($scope, $http){
$scope.search = function() {
$http.jsonp("http://something.com/lol?query="+ $scope.searchString + "?json_callback=JSON_CALLBACK").success(
function(data, status) {
console.log(data);
}
);
}


but I'm getting the error msg:


Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token :


why is this? what am I doing wrong?
}

Answer

Because of the help i got from people answering my question I finally managed to fix it, and i did it like this:

app.controller('myController', function($scope, $http){
    $scope.items = [];  
     $scope.search = function() {        
            $http({method: 'JSONP', url: "http://something.com/lol?callback=JSON_CALLBACK&query="+ $scope.searchString}).
              success(function(data, status) {
                $scope.items = data.entries;
              }).
              error(function(data, status) {
                console.log(data || "Request failed");
            });     
     };

Hope this helps anyone who has the same problem in the future :D
