I have closed the old post as i now know more, and feel that was a dead end
this is my html page. I am using the xmlHttpRequest method as it gives me most control to see what is actually happening, as my method was going into the success callback and not the error callback when using jquery.
I am testing inside eclipse and have breakpoints inside my servlet.
I am getting an alert saying "Error: status code is 0"
before I even get to my breakpoint. I get this alert twice and that is it.
I have looked up the status codes and they should all be 3 digits long. I saw one post that suggested this maybe a firewall but as this is all on my localhost, i thought it couldn't be that.
So any other ideas?
Ok this is a firefox issue (3.6.12)
i just tried it on explorer and it worked after giving me this popup "this page is accessing information that is not under its control. This poses a security Risk. Do you want to continue? Y/N".
Or without the prompt if i take the full path out.
