openDatabase() returns DOMException #18 (SECURITY_ERR)

I am trying to open a database using the blackberry smartphone simulator 9700 (tried all versions). Works fine in the ripple but in the simulator the following line of code returns the error message: DOMException #18 (SECURITY_ERR):


db = openDatabase('EPBcache', '1.0', 'User Phonebook DB', 2 * 1024 * 1024);


Others have been having the same problem from what i've seen in other forums but cant find any solutions. From what i understand, i cant use the method openDatabase().


Is there a way round this problem? Let me know if more information is needed.
