can you check if "INTERNET" Android permissions is selected in your project settings? (or check it manually in your app.xml):
it does not return data - but does it reach server? (are you able to log that?)
Do you get ay errors or something?
Theres def no errors.
Im using Flash Builder 4.5 and when im debugging it, the target data is just empty.
Its like its sending back nothing.
Ive got internet permissions on and it seems to be reaching the server.
Whats strange is that if i dont give it a "method" such as POST, it actually does return the XML.
The problem i now have is, i need to use POST/PUT as i have to invoke something on the server.
So it appears that when i send a POST request msg, thats when it doesnt return anything, when it should.
Ive gotten a bit further and it seems that the POST request actually does work, its invoking an action on the server.
Its just that it returns no data on a mobile device, but returns xml when running on a PC.
I have the same problem, did anybody fix it?
I know this is probably 2 years too late for you, but figured I'd post as someone appears to have figured out what the solution may be.
When I was debugging this, I was pinging https://parse.com. When I tried google, everything seemed to work, so initially I thought it was Parse's servers doing something strange. I then tried https://www.facebook.com to check if it was something to do with the ssl. So when I did this, I got the same issue as with Parse. Finally able to narrow down what I was googling for I came across a post over at stackoverflow.
So apparently the issue is with the captive runtime. I have yet to try using the updated 3.8 AIR SDK (going to try that soon), but using the captive runtime compiled with the 3.8 SDK may be a solution to this problem. If that doesn't work, just try to package your Android apps without the captive runtime and get the end user to install the AIR package separately (not an optimal solution, but may work for most).
