Umm what server technology are you using? PHP, .NET? Generally you would serialize your data using JSON (or XML) and then follow the examples (http://demos.kendoui.com/web/grid/local-data.html
) to bind the data to your grid or other controls.
As for jQuery goes, all you need to do is make an $.ajax() or $.getJSON() request to your server. More here: http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.getJSON/
