    Re: worklight server url problem

    If your application does not require an internet connection, then check your initOptions.js file and make sure the "connectOnStartup" is set to false:

    var wlInitOptions = {

    // # Should application automatically attempt to connect to Worklight Server on application start up
    // # The default value is true, we are overriding it to false here.
    connectOnStartup : false,
    However, if the above is set to true and you have http://${local.IPAddress}:8080 for the worklightServerRootURL value, then you can try connecting your device to the internet and it should work as well.

    Re: worklight server url problem

    Why are you trying to change the development server's URL? Just leave it set to "http://${local.IPAddress}:8080" , which is the default for the Jetty instance your WL Dev server is running on. Although, "http://localhost:8080" should work...

    For WL to function properly, you should have the appropriate server side app running.

    Again, don't mess with the worklightServerRootURL until you are going to deploy it to a remote server for testing or deployment. Leave it as "http://${local.IPAddress}:8080". If you can run it in the emulator, you should be able to plug in an Android device and install it by "Run As > Build And Deploy" in the WL app, and "Run As > Android Application" in the Android app that WL spits out in your Eclipse environment.

    If you have a question about deploying the app to a remote server, then please open a new thread. But, I would advice you to leave that setting be when you are testing in Eclipse.
