Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1741) Our geolocation plugin is missing timeout and maximumAge attributes
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2012 23:56:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1741?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13483743#comment-13483743
] 

Filip Maj commented on CB-1741:
-------------------------------

Our geolocation common module in JS caches all positions returned by the native framework:

- [{{getCurrentPosition}} does this|https://github.com/apache/incubator-cordova-js/blob/master/lib/common/plugin/geolocation.js#L108].
- [so does {{watchPosition}}|https://github.com/apache/incubator-cordova-js/blob/master/lib/common/plugin/geolocation.js#L192].

Finally, {{getCurrentPosition}} [checks whether we have a cached position and compares the
timestamp to the maximumAge parameters|https://github.com/apache/incubator-cordova-js/blob/master/lib/common/plugin/geolocation.js#L122].

> After this discussion on the Google Group (https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/phonegap/Ivoj7oiVwfU),
I realized that we don't implement a timeout or a maximum age for cached locations in our
geolocation plugin.  We need to implement this on Android at the very least.  Other platforms
should also check against the Geolocation Spec.
