Target host must not be null, or set in parameters
I get this error “Target host must not be null, or set in parameters”. My manifest file has internet permission set, and I have put ‘http://’ before my Url. It still gives the same error. My URL does not have a ‘www.’ attached to it.
Part of my Code:
HttpPost post = new HttpPost("http://infocreation.something_something1.xml");
Part of my manifest is like below:
What do I do now?

It should be
HttpPost post = new HttpPost("http://www.infocreation.something.xml");
So I replaced the URL, with almost the same URL, except without the underscore and that worked. I realized from further searches (for example here) that URLs with _(underscore) are not valid, although that particular URL may work. Thanks for all your help.
Are you putting a real and working url inot the HttpPost constructor?
Anyway this is your solution:
If you have the following code failing:
HttpGet httpget = new HttpGet("www.host.com");
Then the error is pretty easy to solve:
The problem is that you have not added a protocol to the URL, so change it to:
HttpGet httpget = new HttpGet("http://www.host.com");
And then it will work as wanted.
