How to use jQuery.getJSON to load JSON file in jQuery?

The jQuery.getJSON( url, [data], [callback] ) method loads JSON data from the server using a GET HTTP request.

Assuming we have the following JSON content in result.json file −

"name": "Amy",
"age" : "24",
"sex": "female"


The following is the code snippet showing the usage of this method −

      <script src = ""></script>
         $(document).ready(function() {
               $.getJSON('result.json', function(jd) {
                  $('#stage').html('<p> Name: ' + + '</p>');
                  $('#stage').append('<p>Age : ' + jd.age+ '</p>');
                  $('#stage').append('<p> Sex: ' + '</p>');
      <p>Click on the button to load result.html file:</p>
      <div id = "stage" style = "background-color:#cc0;">
      <input type = "button" id = "driver" value = "Load Data" />
