android – Cordova / Phonegap All External Ajax Requests Returns 404

Questions:

I did have a Cordova 3.3 app, but yesterday i update the cordova and all my app plugins to v5.0 of apache cordova.

Since i did it, i put a splash screen plugin and build my app without problems, but when i tried to test, i saw that all external ajax requests returns a 404 error, including a simple ajax request to google.


Everything works fine on any browser.


My config.xml:

<preference name="SplashScreen" value="screen" />
<preference name="SplashScreenDelay" value="6000" />
<preference name="SplashMaintainAspectRatio" value="true" />

<platform name="android">
    <splash src="screen/android/ldpi.9.png" density="ldpi"/>
    <splash src="screen/android/mdpi.9.png" density="mdpi"/>
    <splash src="screen/android/hdpi.9.png" density="hdpi"/>
    <splash src="screen/android/xhdpi.9.png" density="xhdpi"/>
</platform>

<preference name="loglevel" value="DEBUG"/>
<preference name="AndroidLaunchMode" value="singleTop"/>
<preference name="ErrorUrl" value=""/>
<preference name="monaca:DisableCookie" value="false"/>
<feature name="App">
    <param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.App"/>
</feature>
<preference name="monaca:androidVersionCode" value="1"/>
<preference name="KeyboardShrinksView" value="true"/>
<preference name="monaca:MonacaBackendUrl" value="https://cloud.monaca.mobi/json-rpc/"/>
<preference name="monaca:MonacaBackendId" value="5462a7b9fd1734575d0f0317"/>
<preference name="monaca:MonacaBackendApiKey" value="e839514dc867719689001fa1c32a17136adeb1ba631c5885b2f996b1375f9cb4"/>
<preference name="KeepRunning" value="true"/>
<preference name="monaca:AndroidIsPackageNameSeparate" value="false"/>
<preference name="DisallowOverscroll" value="true"/>
<preference name="monaca:WebViewEngine" value="default"/>
<preference name="Orientation" value="portrait"/>
<preference name="Fullscreen" value="false"/>
<preference name="BackgroundColor" value="0xff1b3c81"/>

<access origin="*"/>

A example of ajax request that doesn’t work:

$.ajax( "http://www.google.com.br" )
        .done(function() {
            alert( "success" );
        })
        .fail(function() {
            alert( "error" );
        })
        .always(function() {
            alert( "complete" );
        });
How to&Answers:

Cordova 5.0 blocks external http requests by default.

Try adding cordova-plugin-whitelist to your project.
