the url http://demo.places.nlp.nokia.com/pla...cover/explore? doesnt work. What is happening?
It is reachable for me. What do you experience? HTTP 404?
Is very unstable. Anytime OK and anytime Http 404! My connection is good and works well with another URLs.
I have tried accessing the Places REST API endpoints in a lot of the ways found in the documentation both with demo keys and real API keys. I always get a 404 error on all requests like:
See test for JSONP request: http://jsbin.com/igutev/2
Any pointers would be helpful! Thanks!
Just came here to say I'm seeing the same thing. So, if there's some Nokia representatives monitoring the forum, please be aware that your demo.places.nlp.nokia.com test site doesn't seem to be responding.
Now it does not work for me either.
This thread seems to mix up two different topics:
Initially it was about unstable behavior of our service. Neither our service monitoring nor our log files inidicate any instability of the demo-servers. We are still investigating, but so far could not find anything.
The second topic relates to bugs in the published documentation, which misses a critical URL path segment: Every Places API call URL starts with a path segment "/places/v1". So instead of
you must use: http://demo.places.nlp.nokia.com/pla...scover/explore...
(and similarly http://demo.places.nlp.nokia.com/pla...iscover/search )
We've reached out to the documentation team to get those bugs fixed asap.
Until then, the simplest way to get started with the Places API is to use the playground
in a regular browser.
There you can simply choose one of the API features and then copy/paste the URL from your browser into your app.
Hope that helps,
