Subject Re: File upload API issue for android
Date Tue, 13 May 2014 15:52:15 GMT
I’m assuming you are using the FileTransfer.upload method.

If the method is not working (no progress, no callbacks, etc) then try the latest Cordova
version (currently 3.4, but 3.5 is days away from being released). If that doesn’t work,
then open a Jira issue as described on . If you are looking for
a fix, fixes are provided only on the head of the trunk stream, which means that fixes are
released only on subsequent versions, not as patches to older versions. Also be aware that
the transition from 2.9 to 3.0 has a significant change in the tooling and and structure.

The upload API of PhoneGap Android 2.9 is a bit unstable inside the app and it is unable to
fire any sort of events - success, error, progress even though the files are getting uploaded
on the server. The same API is stable and working fine with iOS and Windows.

from PhoneGap 2.5 to PhoneGap 2.7 and then to PhoneGap 2.9 to check if the known issue is
fixed but the events are still not fired even in PhoneGap 2.9. Also the Java APIs cannot be
debugged as they are JAR files.

Files are still uploaded successfully on the server as checked by us and drupal team.

acknowledge the user whether the file is not uploaded.
