I Have a parent window with URL"https://abc/def" and i have a child window with URL "http://abc/xyz" .i want child window to access the parent window's elements but when i use window.opener property to set the values in parent window.i get an exception "Permission Denied".
i have done some R & D on this part and concluded that https cannot communicate with http as protocol are different .
Can anyone please provide me with solution to resolve this issue

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure what this has to do with JDBC (which is what this forum is about), but I don't think there is a solution. Definitely IE (not sure about other browsers) has considered a domain accessed over HTTP and HTTPS as two different domains. Could you access/xyz via HTTPS as well? Unless this is a very heavily used application the overhead of SSL should be manageable.

Moving to our HTML and JavaScript since this is about opening windows.
