Retrieving a list of your google docs using an ATOM feed

Hi,
We are trying to Retrieve using an ATOM 1.0 feed the list of Google docs from the Google servers,
And parse them in XML.
We don't succeed taking the "http://docs.google.com/feeds/documents/private/full" link and Retrieve from it the information about the documents.

Can any one write the correct code for solving this problem?
Thanks,
Nadav

You need to have an active and authorized session token for that link to work. I don't believe you can access it via javascript due to the domain restrictions of javascript.

I think you are gonna have to find another language to act as a proxy and then access that script.

Can you please elaborate. what is a "active and authorized session token" ?
I need to write my gadget in XML and JS only (it is a course assignment).
Are you saying it isn't possible?  can you give an example ?
Thanks again,
Nadav

I'm Sorry but I neglected to say that this is an iGoogle Gadget intented to be placed on www.google.com/ig.
I'm writing it on their site using the GGE (Google Gadget Editor).
I don't think I need authentication.

Does this information help ?
And yes, that was a vital piece of information that was omitted.
