RSS parser not working on device but working fine on simulator?

Hi everyone,


I am working on an app for blackberry and it has a RSS reader. It reads fine on the simulator but when I installed it on the actual device, it fails to read anything from reader. Any help ppppplease?


here is a snapshot of my code:


DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();

DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();

String url=link;




      DocumentBuilderFactory docBuilderFactory

              = DocumentBuilderFactory. newInstance();

      DocumentBuilder docBuilder

              = docBuilderFactory.newDocumentBuilder();


      doc = docBuilder.parse(conn.openInputStream());

 Element docEle =  doc.getDocumentElement();

 NodeList feedList =  docEle.getElementsByTagName("item");

 if (feedList != null && feedList.getLength() > 0) {


            for (int i = 0; i < feedList.getLength(); i++) {


             Node node = feedList.item(i);


             if (node.getNodeType() == Node.ELEMENT_NODE) {







         Element e = (Element) node;


         NodeList nodeList = e.getElementsByTagName("title");



.......... and I get the rest of the rss field .....


Many thanks in advance
