    JavaScript - Access is Denied error

    I have two servers jboss and ejabbered and i have deployed two html files, one on each as follows:

    testdirver.html deployed on ejabbered
    <html><head>
    <script>
    function viewmembers()
    {var w=window.open("http://192.168.56.134:8080/nkms1/kms/test.html");}
    </script>
    </head>
    <body><form name="sub" >
    <input type="text" id="to" name="to">
    <button onClick= "viewmembers();">
    </form></body></html>

    test.html on jboss
    <html>
    <script>
    function abc()
    {alert(window.opener.document.forms[0].to);}
    </script>
    <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
