Rest service Parameters

I need to construct and concatenate a dynamic parameter string for a json restservice if I have one value in the parameter it looks like:
var A = localStorage.getItem('account');
return '{"account":"' + A + '"}'
This works and produces the value:      {"account":"systems"}
I need to pass another parameter in the same string but am struggling with how to achieve this, the string should end up looking like:
{"account":"systems" , “password”:”abc123”}
I have
var A = localStorage.getItem('account');
var P = localStorage.getItem('password');

What is the correct syntax to construct the string?

Shouldn't it be:

var A = localStorage.getItem('account');
var P = localStorage.getItem('password');

return '{"account":"' + A + '", "password":"' + P + '"}';

Perhaps it would be easier if you used some sort of templating. For example:

return '{"account":"#account#", "password":"#password#"}'.replace("#account#", A).replace("#password#", P);

Hi  Kaufmed,

I am fairly new to jquery and could not quite work out the correct syntax your example is exactly what I needed.

Thanks,
Joe
