Default Autosuggest Exception thrown

I'm getting the following error running the Autosuggest code from the book:

Line: 104
Error: Exception thrown and not caught

I am using the code exactly as it is in the book except for replacing suggestions.php with some code appropriate to my environment (which is Oracle).

This is IE 6.0

What am I doing wrong? Thanks -

Hi,

You need to realize that as soon as you change the code that's in the book, it's nearly impossible for us to know what a generic error message such as this means. The example in the book works perfectly, so the error must be in the changes you made.

That being said, the most likely culprit is that the code you added/changed is not producing valid JSON code. The JSON parser will throw an error whenever an unexpected piece of syntax is encountered. Double check your JSON output and you'll probably find the error.

but ... but ... but ...

I don't think I'm ever getting to my code - the first thing (after writing the header) I do is write to the error_log to validate that I did, indeed, get to that code. Nothing is being written there, so ...

That being said, I did have this function working a couple of weeks ago, had to drop it to install PHP 5 and work on something that was hot, then came back to this and was really disappointed.

I believe my "suggestions.php" will work just fine if it ever gets there - is there any other way I should test whether it is receiving control?

And ... apparently PHP 5 is pickier about how you access Oracle. (i.e. the error is in the suggestions.php code) AND I'm now getting error log messages (still don't know why I wasn't getting those before). The javascript is receiving some warning messages from PHP in addition to the jsonified data from the db so I understand why it doesn't know what to do with it.
