I'm currently using the com_ajax component in order to make an internal ajax call/response in my custom module, but upon the ajax call I immediately get a 500 error.

This is the code in my default.php file:

function getApi(bdcApi) {
    Http.open("GET", bdcApi);
    Http.onreadystatechange = function () {
        if (this.readyState == 4 && this.status == 200) {
            //result.innerHTML = this.responseText;
            var data = JSON.parse(this.responseText);
            var zip = data.postcode;
            result.value = zip


                type: 'GET',
                url: "<?php echo JURI::base() . "index.php?option=com_ajax&module=hunter_maps_dev&method=getStoresByZip&anyparams="?>"  + encodeURIComponent(zip) + "&format=json",
                error: function(xhr, status, error) {

My module is called mod_hunter_maps_dev and I have a method in there called getStoresByZipAjax where I'm only trying to return a test string right now. Does everything look correct based on that? I've seen where some people had to load the Joomla API in the helper.php file but I'm not sure how to do that or if it would even work.

Any help is appreciated
