    REST API call inside python script

    is it or how is it possible to use the REST API inside a python script, which is running on the MWS?
    for example i want to call https://domain_name.mymobilesite.net...sence/location and process the returned XML data in the python script.
    import urlib
    content = urllib.urlopen("https://domain_name.mymobilesite.net/rest/presence/availability").read()
    this code leads to the point where the phone (n95 8gb) asks for accesspoints, so it doesn´t use the already established internet connection of the MWS! an unusable behavior! any hints or other approaches to access the REST API?
    THX for help!

    Re: REST API call inside python script


    I stumbled to that one too once. My ugly solution was to define the access point manually in the script (works then only on that phone if IAPs are not changed, not good as I said).

    iap = socket.access_point(7)                    # WARNING: Hard coded IAP!!
    response = urllib.urlopen("http://web.address.net").read()
    The IAP number 7 in the example must be replaced to suite your needs. Use PyS60 socket module function access_points (lists access points id's and names that are available) to determine which one to use.

    If someone knows more, please suggest a better way! ;-)

    Re: REST API call inside python script

    I tried a simple sample but i have an error with import xml.sax, the error is "no module name xml.sax" i think its because i need pyexpat from pyxml but i don´t find it on the web.

    Is there another way to do this sample whitout the module xml.sax?
    my sample code:

    import appuifw
    import e32
    import urllib
    import xml.sax
    import xml.sax.handler
    class DeviceStateHandler(xml.sax.handler.ContentHandler):
    	def __init__(self, device):
    		self.device = device
    	def startElement(self, name, attributes):
    		if name == "devicestate":
    			self.device = DeviceState(attributes["battery_level"],attributes["localtime"], attributes["connection_type"])
    class DeviceState:
    	def __init__(self, battery_level, localtime, connection_type):
    		self.battery_level = battery_level
    		self.localtime = localtime
    		self.connection_type = connection_type
    	def getAttributes(self):
    		return u'Battery Level: ' + self.battery_level + u'\nLocalTime: ' + self.localtime + u'\nConnection Type: ' + self.connection_type
    def quit():
    appuifw.app.exit_key_handler = quit
    def print(text):
    		appuifw.note(text, 'info')
    def stateDevice():
    	url = ""
    	content = urllib.urlopen(url).read()
    	handler = DeviceStateHandler()
    	xml.sax.parseString(content, handler)
    appuifw.app.menu = [(u'State', stateDevice)]
    appuifw.app.title = u'Sample REST Services'
    app_lock = e32.Ao_lock() 
    Thanks for help!!
