Getting around COR in Webworks

Hi there,


Having a small nightmare trying to work out the best way to send SOAP data using jQuery. The code I'm using builds the request and then uses jQuery's ajax function to POST the data.



url: url,
type: "POST",
async: true,
beforeSend: function (xhr) {
xhr.setRequestHeader("SOAPAction", soapAction);
data: xml

For testing (using the Ripple Emulator) I'm posting from localhost, to a local IP ( in case you need to know). However it isn't working because of Access-Control-Allow-Origin. 

Here are the sent headers

OPTIONS /MediaRenderer/RenderingControl/Control HTTP/1.1 Host: Connection: keep-alive Access-Control-Request-Method: POST Origin: http://localhost User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/21.0.1180.89 Safari/537.1 Access-Control-Request-Headers: origin, soapaction, content-type, accept Accept: */* Referer: http://localhost/webapp/ Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate,sdch Accept-Language: en-GB,en-US;q=0.8,en;q=0.6 Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.3

And the response headers:

HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error
CONTENT-TYPE: text/xml; charset="utf-8"
SERVER: Linux UPnP/1.0 Sonos/19.3-53220b (ZP120)
Connection: close

Normally this would be easy, as I'd just use a PHP proxy however obviously in Webworks this isn't possible. So the question is - is it possible to use an extension or custom API as a proxy to do such request, or is Webworks setup so as to allow CORS? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

How funny, just read the topic about 3 down which suggests adding this to Chrome:
However, when the application is packaged and installed, will it actually work on the Playbook? Basically can't seem to find out if like Internet Explorer the Playbook supports data access from different domains.

You'll need to make sure the target domain is whitelisted in your config.xml
