Rails and JQuery and Ajax/Json question


I am using JQuery in my rails app. I've taken the approach outlined in Ryan Bates's Railscast on jquery to do the following:

jQuery.ajaxSetup({     'beforeSend' : function(xhr) {xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept", "text/javascript")} });

to set my ajax call request Headers to text/javascript so that my respond to block for javascript is invoked.

This works great up until I get to wanting to call jQuery.getJSON

It appears that my ajaxSetup call causes the getJSON call to send the text/javascript header instead of application/json.

Now there are a number of ways I can work around this (using jQuery.ajax, not using ajaxSetup ...)

But I was wondering if there is a convention that folks have adopted in cases like this?

Thanks! Jay
