Hello guys,
I'm new to GWT. I am trying to integrate Box.net in my GWT application but I am not able to send http request to Box.net. Please can any one tell me how do you send an http request and get a http response in GWT.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Check out RequestBuilder. More info here http://code.google.com/p/google-web-toolkit-doc-1-5/wiki/DevGuideHttpRequests

Thanks for the reply. I tried that but it gives me an error Access-Control-Allow-Origin. So how do I resolve it?

The link I posted has information on the Same Origin Policy restrictions and possible workarounds. Did you refer to that?

Yes, I saw the link and I did accordingly. I did sent the HttpRequest but now the problem is it does not get a response and I have no idea why is it so.
I can show you the code if you want and here is the link for my test

The Box-net Button is the one I am trying to implement.
See if you could help me for this.

200 indicates a successful call.
How are you checking the response?
What kind of response are you expecting from the server?

yaah 200 does indicate a successful execution but I still get an empty response.

I am using FireBug to check the response and I am expecting an XML response.

I am calling a rest service of Box.net and I am expecting an XML response from the api. But I am not getting it.

Please post the code where you build the request, make the call and process the response.
