Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-7111) [Android] Allow webview to be used as a Fragment
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2014 19:13:04 GMT
Marcel Kinard created CB-7111:

             Summary: [Android] Allow webview to be used as a Fragment
                 Key: CB-7111
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Android
            Reporter: Marcel Kinard
            Priority: Minor

Today the CordovaActivity is a subclass of Activity. For an app developer who would like to
use the webview as a fragment inside another activity, this should work automatically if they
are targeting API11 or above. But if they  want to do this on Android versions earlier than
API11, they need to include the Android Support Library, which requires the webview to be
a subclass of FragmentActivity instead of Activity. So it's currently not possible to use
a webview as an Android fragment below API11 without making changes to the Cordova source.
And there is no documentation to this effect.

Ideally, we could provide both CordovaActivity and CordovaFragment and apps can use whichever
they prefer. If that goes well, we could have CordovaActivity use a CordovaFragment, all without
breaking the API of CordovaActivity.
