After testing my widget to the devices mentioned at the bottom of the message I concluded that,
-WRT widgets do not support http HEAD requests.
-when using http basic authentication (ajax) the s60 platform prompts for authentication even
when I pass the correct credentials via http headers.This happens on Nokia N97, Nokia 5800 XpressMusic,
Nokia 5230 but not in Nokia E52.
Authentication header example:
xmlHttp.setRequestHeader("Authorization", 'Basic '+(Base64.encode(USERNAME+':'+PASSWORD))+'');
-also on basic authentication (ajax) when the user enters wrong credentials the platform prompts authentication
on all devices.
1) Nokia N97
2) Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
3) Nokia 5230
4) Nokia E52
(All devices are firmware updated the via the Nokia Device Update feature in the Phone Management screen)
There are two more threads mentioning this issue, and there was no progress to sort this out.
Your help is much appreciated,
