Default Prompting to be allowed to use http

Please Login to Remove!

Good evening one and all. What a wonderful resource this site is -- took a little bit of finding before I hit it. Well done.

I have a Java app that posts data to the server. Everytime I start the application up, it always prompts the user if they permit the connection. After that it works fine from there on in.

However when i shut the app down, and restart it, it asks for permission on startup.

How can i "cache/store" the users permission between app restarts?

thanks

The user needs to set those permissions prior to running your application. Application Permissions can be found under Options / Security Options/ Applications Permissions.

thanks for that.

however, other applications manage to do it with out having to reprompt.

is this one of the advantages of having the application signed?

Yes, if you are using classes that are marked as "requires signature". Look at your build window and see if you are gettign any of these warnings.

You might also take a look at ApplicationPermissions and ApplicationPermissionsManager if you are developing for 4.2.1 or above.

Hmmm...I just did a test of ApplicationPermissions and ApplicationPermissionsManager to programmatically make a change to phone access, which prompts the user to verify my request and save. Everything goes just fine and dandy, except that the after the user "saves" my settings, my application still throws the access exception. I then go back to Security Settings (manually, via the menus) and the phone setting is back to "Deny" again.

Anybody get this "ApplicationPermissions" thing working as documented?

Submitted this issue to RIM - response was "we were able to duplicate the issue and we're looking into it".

Just so you know you're not alone, I also experienced this issue on some older apps builds with ApplicationManager. I believe it is a known issue at RIM as you said
