Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8002) Creating a new div for every Js -> Native exec() call
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2014 00:03:34 GMT


Hirbod commented on CB-8002:

I can confirm this bug. I had a setInterval() with an console.log inside and wondered myself...
More then 1000 created iframes in few minutes. But it seems not the effect memory that badly
(because of display: none I guess)

But I guess this should be fixed quickly.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 3.7.0
>         Environment: Tested on multiple iOS 8.1 devices, simulators
>            Reporter: Serdar Onal
>            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah
>            Priority: Critical
> Since the 3.7.0 update, when cordova does a Js to Native call using exec(), somehow the
underlying cordova.js is creating a "gap://ready" iframe on every call. This means that if
you made 1000 native calls you'll have 1000 divs on the DOM.
> I believe this issue is of critical priority as it incurs a huge memory leak.
