Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-10657) [wkWebView] wkWebView disables JS execution when app is backgrounded
Date Sun, 21 Feb 2016 07:13:18 GMT
John Robert  Cobbold created CB-10657:

             Summary: [wkWebView] wkWebView disables JS execution when app is backgrounded
                 Key: CB-10657
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin WKWebViewEngine
         Environment: iOS
            Reporter: John Robert  Cobbold

When using wkWebView, Javascript execution is totally stopped after the app is backgrounded
by the user. This is a major problem for apps using background modes as no javascript callback
will be executed unless the app is either in the foreground or was already terminated by the
user / OS.

example: cordova-plugin-geofence's javascript callbacks will not trigger after the app was
foregrounded but will however trigger if the app is in the foregrounded or was killed by the
user / OS.

UIView does not have this problem.
