Answers:

Answer

http://applica.luminoustec.net/file.xml is XML.

dataType: "jsonp", tells jQuery to parse it as JSONP.

XML is not JSONP. Thus, it errors.

Either:

  1. Change the URL to one which returns JSONP or
  2. Remove the dataType line and let jQuery detect it as XML (NB: This will probably require that you set up CORS support on the server).
