View Full Version : JavaScript - Access is Denied error

12-13-2011, 12:46 PM
I have two servers jboss and ejabbered and i have deployed two html files, one on each as follows:

testdirver.html deployed on ejabbered
function viewmembers()
{var w=window.open("");}
<body><form name="sub" >
<input type="text" id="to" name="to">
<button onClick= "viewmembers();">

test.html on jboss
function abc()
<body onload=abc();></body></html>

Problem: window.opener.document gives the js error "Access is Denied" which i am not able to understand.

Exchanging the two files on the servers(i.e. testdriver.html on jboss and test.html on ejabbered works fine and i get the output [object]). So i am guessing there is something that has to do with the ejabbered server

No, nothing about the server but rather about the client. Browser policy prevents a page coming from one domain/subdomain/protocol from accessing information from another page coming from a different domain/subdomain/protocol

Possible solution: Server side proxy (on your server) that opens a remote URL and outputs to your script. Then the script "thinks" that the information is coming from the same server
