Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6299) Ajax of local files not working when requested via absolute URL
Date Wed, 19 Mar 2014 14:42:43 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-6299:

Github user gabrielschulhof commented on the pull request:
    So, there are (probably more than) three cases when retrieving a local file via Ajax:
    <dt><code>other-file.html</code></dt><dd>works, because
the URL is correctly assembled by Cordova</dd>
because the Uri class used <a href="">here</a>
seems to understand this kind of URL</dd>
work, because the <a href="">code</a>
I mention in my previous comment is not having an effect due to the fact that the URL starts
with the protocol</dd>
    Now, granted, the form ```x-wmapp0:/www/other.html``` may not occur much in the wild,
but performing URL calculations such as creating an absolute URL from a relative URL are impossible
when the URL scheme does not have a slash at the root, because you cannot distinguish an absolute
URL from a relative URL.

> The code does not properly strip slashes from the path name when the URL is absolute,
because in that case the path name is prefixed with the protocol, so the protocol must be
stripped off first.
