Re: Problem with web service calling

Your config.xml needs to have the ip address or url "whitelisted".  Use the access tag for that.  eg:


<access uri="*" subdomains="true"></access>

 The above piece is not secure because it whitelists ALL \ * domains.  You can put your url in the uri.

Re: Problem with web service calling

If you're writing for BB10 you can't use the * wildcard for ajax/xhr requests anymore.  You'd have to do something like this instead:


    <access uri="*" subdomains="true" />
    <access uri="https://twitter.com" subdomains="true" />
    <access uri="http://twitter.com" subdomains="true" />
