[Dancer-users] cross domain ajax to dancer app

I am trying to send an ajax GET request from one dancer app (powered by Starman on one port) to another dancer app (powered by Starman on another port). I am using jQuery like so

	        "url": url,
	        "data": data,
	        "type": "GET",
	        "dataType": "jsonp",
	        "jsonpCallback": function(res) {
			.. do something with res ..

I can see the result come back from the second dancer app in Safari web inspector. It looks like a JSON stream, but it doesn't trigger the jsonpCallback. The web inspector complains that "Resource interpreted as script but transferred with MIME type application/json." I am wondering if there is something in the second dancer app (the one that returns the result) which is setting a wrong header that is causing the callback to not be tripped. The code in the second dancer app looks like so

	use Dancer::Plugin::REST;

	use DBI;

	get '/poly.:format' => sub {
		my $poly = params->{'BBOX'};

    		my $res = recs_within_poly($poly);
    		return $res;

By the way, seems like if I use Dancer::Plugin::REST, I can't use Dancer::Plugin::Ajax, or can I? Changing the above route to `ajax '../ => sub {};` gives an error that the route was not found.
