Should a call to  a web service through XMLHttpRequest(); work in the emulator?

I have code that worked in Eclypse, but doesn't seem to work in the Icenium emulator.

Hi J.D.,

Ajax calls should work fine in the simulator. However there is small catch if you are using Mist's simulator. More info here.

Ok, thank you for your quick reply. Maybe it's an issue then with my router that I cannot access my own websites/web services within network.

For my PC's I can modify the hosts file, but not for the simulator.

Will check from the office later today.

It worked from PC's outside the network where I have the web services hosted, so the reason that it didn't work is that my router can't handle requests to local addresses correctly.

Unfortunately, we can't edit the hosts file in the emulators.

Here is an example of what I use:
var serverBaseURL = "http://webservices.yourdomain.com/";
var useURL = "webservice.asmx";
$.ajax({
    url: serverBaseURL + useUrl,
    dataType: 'jsonp',
    jsonp: 'jsoncallback',
    timeout: 15000,
    success: function(data){
        var recordCount = data.length;
        
        if(recordCount >0) {
            $.each(data, function(index, row) {    
                // do something
            });
        
        }
    },
    error: function(){
        notify('Connection problem, please try again.', null, 'Server Connection', 'OK');
    }
});

Hope it helps!

It's hard to give a good example because many different results can be returned by a  web service. Do you have an example of the web service you are going to use?

This may sound harsh, but it is not my intention to sound like that:

I think that if you don't know where to put the code I posted earlier, then it is to early to ask how to use a webservice...

The code I posted should be recognized by you as JavaScript and in general we put that in a javascript file (.js).

Hello, just wanted to see if I could provide you with some examples:

This is a very simple get request that gets some JSON that I save to the local storage.

$.get('http://....com/api/apiProject', function(data) {

            localStorage.setItem("nameOfValue", JSON.stringify(data));
    });

Or using the same example you can populate a listview 

$.get('http://....com/api/apiProject', function(data) {
var tmp = '<li><a href=\'ProjectDetails.html?pid=' + project.ProjectID + '\'>' + project.ProjectName + '</a></li>';
                    
$("#listViewProjects").append(tmp);    
    });

Here I just add some <li> to an existing listview
