AFJSONPRequestOperation is a subclass of AFHTTPRequestOperation for downloading and parsing JSON responses in a JSONP with an Objective-C block syntax.


  • Easy integration with AFNetworking.
  • Support for JSONP responses.
  • Efficient JSON parsing using NSJSONSerialization.
  • Support for success and failure callbacks using blocks.
  • Automatic response serialization into NSArray or NSDictionary objects.
  • Customizable request timeout and cache policies.
  • Progressive download support.



To use AFJSONPRequestOperation, you will need to install AFNetworking first. You can install AFNetworking using CocoaPods by adding the following line to your Podfile:

pod 'AFNetworking'

Include Framework

Import AFNetworking and AFJSONPRequestOperation in your code:

// Objective-C

#import <AFNetworking/AFNetworking.h>

#import <AFNetworking/AFJSONPRequestOperation.h>

Creating an AFJSONPRequestOperation

Create an instance of AFJSONPRequestOperation and provide the URL for the JSONP resource:

NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@""];

AFJSONPRequestOperation *operation = [AFJSONPRequestOperation JSONPRequestOperationWithRequest:request success:^(NSURLRequest *request, NSHTTPURLResponse *response, id JSON) {
   // JSON parsing and handling here
} failure:^(NSURLRequest *request, NSHTTPURLResponse *response, NSError *error, id JSON) {
   // Error handling here

Configuring the Request

You can customize the request timeout, cache policy, and other properties:

operation.timeoutInterval = 60;

operation.cachePolicy = NSURLRequestReloadIgnoringLocalCacheData;

Enqueuing the Operation

Add the operation to an instance of AFHTTPClient or AFHTTPRequestOperationManager and enqueue it:

// Using AFHTTPRequestOperationManager

AFHTTPRequestOperationManager *manager = [AFHTTPRequestOperationManager manager];

[manager.operationQueue addOperation:operation];

Handling the Response

You can handle the success and failure cases using blocks:

operation.successCallbackQueue = dispatch_get_main_queue();

operation.failureCallbackQueue = dispatch_get_main_queue();


You can cancel an AFJSONPRequestOperation at any time:

[operation cancel];


AFJSONPRequestOperation is a convenient subclass of AFHTTPRequestOperation that allows you to easily work with JSONP responses in your Objective-C projects. By integrating AFNetworking and using the provided block syntax, you can efficiently download, parse, and handle JSONP data.
