CMAL Query - Jsom

Hi All,

I am using JSOM to try and retrieve values from SharePoint and filtering by using caml.
Unfortunately, all results are returned ignoring the caml query.  I did use u2u query builder to generate the caml query code and it works in the u2u environment so not sure why it's not working in my code.

var clientContext = new SP.ClientContext();
		var oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('ParkFundingForm');
		
		var camlQuery = new SP.CamlQuery();
			camlQuery.set_viewXml(
					   '<Query>'+
					   '<Where>'+
					      '<Eq>'+
					         '<FieldRef Name=\'Title\' />'+
					         '<Value Type=\'Text\'>another test</Value>'+
					      '</Eq>'+
					   '</Where>'+
					'</Query>'+
					'<ViewFields>'+
					   '<FieldRef Name=\'Title\' />'+
					   '<FieldRef Name=\'ProjectName\' />'+
					   '<FieldRef Name=\'PriorityNumber\' />'+
					   '<FieldRef Name=\'ID\' />'+
					   '<FieldRef Name=\'ParkID\' />'+
					   '<FieldRef Name=\'ProjectNumber\' />'+
					'</ViewFields>'
			   );
	  
		this.collListItem = oList.getItems(camlQuery);
		
		clientContext.load(collListItem);

I figured it out and I won't delete just in case someone else has the same issue.  I surrounded the query with "<View></View>".

<View><Query>"+
					   "<Where>"+
					      "<Eq>"+
					         "<FieldRef Name='Title' />"+
					         "<Value Type='Text'>another test</Value>"+
					      "</Eq>"+
					   "</Where>"+
					"</Query>"+
					"<ViewFields>"+
					   "<FieldRef Name='Title' />"+
					   "<FieldRef Name='ProjectName' />"+
					   "<FieldRef Name='PriorityNumber' />"+
					   "<FieldRef Name='ID' />"+
					   "<FieldRef Name='ParkID' />"+
					   "<FieldRef Name='ProjectNumber' />"+
					"</ViewFields></View>
