Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9060) [Android] CordovaWebViewImpl.showWebPage loads in WebView AND launches intent
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:06:04 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-9060:

Right now we can't whitelist anything for navigation.  I think the plugin's shouldAllowNavigation
is broken, and this is a plugin problem.

> With cordova-android@4.0.0 and the new whitelist functionality, it seems that calls to
CordovaWebView.showWebPage (via CordovaWebViewImpl implementation) are getting launched both
in the app WebView AND via Intent in the system browser.
> This happens when, for example, the Cordova app is hosted remotely, so the actual URL
is a, and the developer has included the following in config.xml:
>     <!-- Allow links to web pages to open in a browser -->
>     <allow-intent href="http://*/*" />
>     <allow-intent href="https://*/*" />
> Then, if in the app, there is a call to showWebPage with a URL at,
it will launch in both places.
> Should there be a return statement at Line 216 to prevent any attempt to load the URL
externally, if we actually load it internally?
