> Android Quirks should be documented for WebSQL
> ----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-4760
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android, Docs
>    Affects Versions: 2.9.0
>            Reporter: Peter
>            Assignee: Andrew Grieve
>             Fix For: 3.2.0
> Apparently the WebSQL implementation is known broken on some Android devices.
> See
> 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
> See
> --
> 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.
