Hello,

We are creating an RSS reader to display feeds. We have built this the feeds can be read from any site. In HD DVD this was easy because text reading didn't require AACS or any other permissions. If my understanding is correct we need to add the Host to the RPF file. What if we do not know all the hosts?

Is there a way around this? For example can our permissions file look like this:

This would allow access to java.net.*?

Is there any other way to allow this? We have have spent a lot of time writing this and need to find a solution.

Thank you for your help!

Scott

While not ideal from a security standpoint, you can wildcard the entry.
