Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-4760) Android Quirks should be documented for WebSQL
Date Sun, 08 Sep 2013 23:28:51 GMT
Peter created CB-4760:

             Summary: Android Quirks should be documented for WebSQL
                 Key: CB-4760
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Android, Docs
    Affects Versions: 2.9.0
            Reporter: Peter
            Assignee: Joe Bowser

Apparently the WebSQL implementation is known broken on some Android devices.

But the Cordova provided implementation also has some behaviours which cause mobile-spec storage.spec.18
to fail
See CB-4742, CB-3047

Furthermore, the advice from Cordova dev is to just avoid using the WebSQL API


The problem is that the Storage Guide documentation (
currently doesn't mention any *Android Quirks* at all, so as far as user knows it should all
work OK as per the API guide.

Since (from above) there are known problems with the WebSQL API, and Cordova devs recommend
to avoid using the WebSQL API, and the Cordova impl of WebSQL sometimes has unexpected behaviour,
then all these should be documented as Android Quirks so the user is more aware of potential
issues they will face.
