I have created the following code in JavaScript on a .cshtml page. This is an asynchronous call to the server to post new seat assignments.

$.ajax({url: '/tickets/update',
        data: { id: id, seat: seat },
        type: "POST",
        success: function(result) {
           // do something here           
        error: function(result) {
           // do something here           

I believe this code is correct. But now I need confirmation from the server that the new seat assignment worked or not.

Our developer is asking me what I am expecting as a response. What do I tell him? And how do I process this in the JavaScript code?

And how does he have to program that. Do we use JSON for that?
