Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5650) make visible the version of the Cordova native lib
Date Thu, 16 Jan 2014 00:43:21 GMT


Andrew Grieve commented on CB-5650:

I think the motivation here was that at runtime there is no way to tell what version of cordova
the native side is running. Having the native side use whatever logging exists to it to log
the message on start-up is the ask.

> We recently had a situation where a consumer had mismatched the runtime: one version
of cordova.js and another version of the Cordova native code. The consumer gave us their compiled
app, so we didn't have access to the native's source in the project. We had an idea that it
would be nice if the native code compiled in some marker so we could tell what version it
was without the source. Perhaps issue a log on startup saying "Greetings from Cordova native
code 3.2.0", or have something compiled in that would appear in "strings cordova.jar | grep
