 The jquery1.4.1.min.js and json2.js files can be found in the most recent MS CRM SDK. 
sdk\samplecode\js\restendpoint\jqueryrestdataoperations\jqueryrestdataoperations\scripts. 

var odataSelect = "Your OData Query";

$.ajax({
       type: "GET",
       contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
       datatype: "json",
       url: odataSelect,
       beforeSend: function (XMLHttpRequest) { XMLHttpRequest.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json"); },
       success: function (data, textStatus, XmlHttpRequest) 
           { 
               // Use only one of these two methods

               // Use for a selection that may return multiple entities
               ProcessReturnedEntities(data.d.results); 

               // Use for a single selected entity
               ProcessReturnedEntity(data.d);
           
           },
       error: function (XmlHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown) { alert('OData Select Failed: ' + odataSelect); }
   });
   

function ProcessReturnedEntities(ManyEntities)
{
  for( i=0; i< ManyEntities.length; i++)
  {
     var oneEntity = ManyEntities[i];
     var accountNumberAttribute = oneEntity.AccountNumber;    
     
     var accountNumberValue = eval(oneEntity.AccountNumber);
  }
}

function ProcessReturnedEntity(OneEntity)
{  
     var oneEntity = OneEntity;
     var accountNumber = oneEntity.AccountNumber;
     
     var accountNumberValue = eval(oneEntity.AccountNumber);     
}   

You can find out the type of a form control as follows:
var attrType = Xrm.Page.getAttribute("accountnumber").getAttributeType();

string, memo fields:
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("accountnumber").setValue(eval(oneEntity.AccountNumber));

decimal, double fields:
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_float").setValue(parseFloat(eval(oneEntity.new_Float)));

integer fields
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_integer").setValue(parseInt(eval(oneEntity.new_Integer)));

money fields
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_moneyattribute").setValue(parseFloat(eval(oneEntity.new_MoneyAttribute.Value)));

optionset fields
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_optionset").setValue(eval(oneEntity.new_OptionSet.Value));

date fields
var fieldValue = eval(oneEntity.new_DateTime);                       
var dateValue = new Date(parseInt(fieldValue.replace("/Date(", "").replace(")/", ""), 10));
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("new_datetime").setValue(dateValue);

Lookup 
var olookup = new Object();
olookup.id = ManyEntities[0].Id;
olookup.entityType = "account";
olookup.name = ManyEntities[0].Name;
var olookupValue = new Array();
olookupValue[0] = olookup;
Xrm.Page.getAttribute("account").setValue(olookupValue);

Hello Mak!

I am not too familiar with CRM.
Can you please elaborate on this post with a few lines describing the requirement and where to put the code in?

Manu.

var url ="//XRMServices/2011/OrganizationData.svc/ContactSet()?$select=ContactId,FirstName,LastName&orderby=fullname&$filter=employeeid eq '" + eid+ "'";
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function() {
if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200) {
var jsonDoc = JSON.parse(xmlhttp.responseText).d;
var contatid;
for (var i = 0; i < jsonDoc.results.length; i++) {
contatid = jsonDoc.results[i].ContactId; //can get this node
}
var erURL = "//main.aspx?etn=contact&pagetype=entityrecord&id=%7B"+ contatid + "%7D";
window.open(erURL,'erURL','directories=0,location=0,menubar=0,status=0,toolbar=0');
}
}

put the above code in your form onload evenet, response will be json format (xmlhttp.responseText), that was i mentioned on the top of the blog.
