If you want to send the JSON data to the server and aspecting the same from there ,then you have to do this.
in the $.ajax method, in the last argument you can specify  "json" ,which causes the jquery to fetch the result and deserilize automatically for you before it handles the data in the OnSuccess function of the ajax call.
