I have followed the tutorial provided for developing basic web application. When I run it, the simulator says that it is unable to connect to selected Mobile Data Service.
What does this mean? Do I need to ensure something to make it work.

Are you using one of the BlackBerry web development plug-ins for Visual Studio or Eclipse?
Or are you using the simulators standalone to test your website?

I am using Eclipse plug-in to develop and test my application ( OS:Vista 32-bits). On debugging it, the simulator browser keeps on loading and after sometime generates the mentioned error. Then I tried one thing, I replaced http://localhost:8080/ app_name/index.html on BB browser with htt://my_ip_address:8080/app_name/index.html and this worked and opened my application index.html page. I do not understand why localhost does not work though simulator and my server (Tomcat) are running on the same machine.
Your insight on this quesion will be very helpful.

The MDS Simulator sometimes can have some issues with localhost. We are looking to address this with the final release of the Eclipse Web Plug-in v2.0.
It is best to use the IP address of your machine or the fully qualified domain name of the machine.
