I wrote a very simple WCF service with one operation contract that returns a list of points. I then wanted to use JQuery to consume the service and get the list of points on to a web page.  I was following Rick Strahl's blog: http://www.west-wind.com/weblog/posts/324917.aspx.

I keep geeting the error: 415 unsupported media type

Please could you let me know where I'm going wrong. Thanks!

Figured it out. I had the incorrect web config it should have looked as follows:
	<system.serviceModel>
		<behaviors>
			<endpointBehaviors>
				<behavior name="WebBehavior">
					<webHttp />
				</behavior>
			</endpointBehaviors>			
			<serviceBehaviors>
				<behavior name="Portal.Services.TestServiceBehavior">
					<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpGetUrl="" />
					<serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />
				</behavior>
			</serviceBehaviors>
		</behaviors>
		<services>
			<service behaviorConfiguration="Portal.Services.TestServiceBehavior"
			 name="Portal.Services.TestService">
				<endpoint address="" binding="webHttpBinding" behaviorConfiguration="WebBehavior" contract="Contracts.ITestService">
					<identity>
						<dns value="localhost" />
					</identity>
				</endpoint>
				<endpoint address="mex" binding="mexHttpBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange" />
			</service>
		</services>
	</system.serviceModel>
