Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8917) Add api/way to get plugins results even when Cordova activity restarts
Date Thu, 19 Nov 2015 22:47:11 GMT

Github user riknoll commented on the pull request:
    @Bnaya That is correct and it was intentional. Is there a need for extending this to all
plugin callbacks currently pending? The way I see it, the burden is on the app developer for
being careful about what plugins are launching external Activities and maintaining their state
accordingly (for example, not launching the camera activity while waiting on a file transfer).
Plugins have access to the Activity lifecycle on the native side, so they should be able to
handle whatever is happening. I guess plugins lose the ability to notify the javascript side
about what's going on, (like a file transfer failing) but hopefully the app developer is being
careful so that those situations don't occur.

> In android when you have a plugin that opens new activity the CordovaActivity will be
killed and you won't get the result from the plugin.
> The new activity will get the results but because the plugin objects are dead and the
webview reloaded you can get the data to the js callback.
> The most noticeable example is the camera plugin. (And maybe its the same with even more
> possible solution for this is to add metadata to the device ready event with incoming
data from plugins.
