Date Fri, 30 Mar 2012 23:13:25 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-363:

Can you please provide some code we can use to reproduce this error, otherwise I'm going to
have to close this as "Won't Fix"

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 1.3.0, 1.4.0, 1.5.0
>         Environment: Android Simulator, 
> Android 2.2+
> PhoneGap (any version)

> Description
> ------------------
> If I create a database with the PhoneGap API (1.3.0 or higher) I can set an initial size.
If I insert data, the size of the database file should grow if there is not enough space for
all the inserted data. This is not working properly on Android, and I will get the following
> error.code: 4
> error.message: there was not enough remaining storage space, or the storage quota was
reached and the user declined to allow more space
> When I close the app (kill the process) and reopen it, the database file is grown by
~1MB and I can insert data up to that size.
> I tried inserting all of the data in one single transaction, or with every single insert
being one transaction, the result is the same. Changing the database size after creation has
no effect.
> Steps to Reproduce
> ------------------
> Create a Database with the phonegap API using
> var db = window.openDatabase("test", "1.0", "Test DB", 200000); 
> 200000 being the size of the database, as used in the (former) API examples. 
> Expected Results
> ------------------
> The database is created and I can read from and write to.
> The size of the database file should grow, so all the data can get inserted.
> Actual Results
> ------------------
> The database is created and I can read from and write to.
> When I insert data, the initial size seems to be the upper limit for the size of the
db (filesize of the .db file)
> When this size is reached and I try to insert data, phonegap aborts with the error described
> This only happens on Android, device or simulator
> For iOS the database seems to grow "on the fly"
