Sparkweb error message

I am using the pre-built SparkWeb 0.9.0 downloaded from the website.

My XMPP server is eJabberd 2.0.3 running on Ubuntu Linux at

In my ejabberd.cfg file, I have:

SERVED HOSTNAME = “localhost”

and eJabberd web server setup to accept BOSH connections on /http-bind/

It works with iJab and JWchat.

This is a test/development environment with no DNS or fancy hostnames.

The login JID for eJabberd is king@localhost


function jive_sparkweb_getConfig()
     return {
          server: "",
          connectionType: "http",
          port: "5280",
             bindPath: "/http-bind/",
             autoLogin: "true",
             username: "king",
             password: "xxxxx",
             policyFileURL: ""

Error message from Adobe Flash 9 (Debug version on Mac OS X):

I believe it has something to do with login. Any suggestions?


I have enabled “flashlog.txt” thanks to

http://elromdesign.com/blog/2009/01/27/tips-debugging-flex-applications-with-fla shlogtxt-on-a-mac/

and I noticed that before I get the error message above, I get this in my flashlog.txt:


I re-installed webspark-0.9.0 from the web site and configured it with eJabberd (as described above) and I still get the error message during login.

Has anyone else experienced this or have any advice for trying to debug this?
