Http Requests

Hi,

I am in the early stages of creating an App to display additional information on users who have submitted tickets.  To do this I have created a REST web service using WCF which serves up data from our local customer database.

I've made my app as close as possible to the example Bookmarks app but I cannot get the HTTP requests to work.  Here is my app.js code:

 

function() {
return {
requests: {
fetchUserData: function() {
return {
url: 'http://testing.policyworks.com/MaxDataService/APIs/MaxDataRetriever.svc/UserData/chad.pickerell@policyworks.com';,
type: 'GET'
};
}
},
events: {
'app.activated' : 'requestUserData',
'fetchUserData.always': function(e, data) {
this.renderUserData((data || {}).userInfo);
},
},
requestUserData: function() {
this.ajax('fetchUserData');
},
renderUserData: function(userInfo) {
this.userInfo = userInfo;
this.switchTo('list', { userInfo: this.userInfo});
}
};
}());

I am pretty sure all of my method calls are working as my 'list' template is showing up properly but my web service is not getting hit.  I feel like I am missing something small but significant.  Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
