Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-2901) [BlackBerry10] File API does not handle files outside of sandbox
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 15:35:16 GMT


Bryan Higgins commented on CB-2901:

This issue also applies to the new BB10 implementation, across the entire file API.

In the WebWorks SDK, there is an API call "" which determines if local
storage will be used or file system API.

Ideally this will be transparent to the user in cordova. If a file:/// path is requested,
an un-sandbox operation will occur. The call will error out if the app does not have permission.
