Javascript to pull data from external file

I have a sample code of Javascript that will pull data from an embedded text file.  How hard would it be to make the attached sample pull the data from an external source rather than an embedded file preferably a network location if possible.  Thanks

Is this in adobe?

Yes it is.

I am not an adobe expert sorry,  but you might look at this:


they are using SOAP to call a web URL to read data.

I suspect adobe might be in a "sandbox".

I did some references to app.open but it looked like it applied to opening PDF files not data objects.

maybe someone more knowledgeable can help.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
