Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-3071) App cache is invalidated after complete restart of an app
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2016 20:42:20 GMT


David Azevedo commented on CB-3071:

I now changed in my config.xml 
<preference name="OverrideUserAgent" value="Mozilla/5.0 My Browser" />
<preference name="AppendUserAgent" value="2taps" />

And undone changes to CDVViewController.m and is working now.

If we look at the if in CDVViewController.m

    if (appendUserAgent) {
        _userAgent = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@ %@", localBaseUserAgent, appendUserAgent];
  <<=== Now I Am Hiting Here
    } else {
        // Use our address as a unique number to append to the User-Agent.
        _userAgent = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@ (%lld)", localBaseUserAgent, (long long)self];
 <<=== Before i was Hiting Here

So if there is a reason to include the unique thing, at least it is not being included when
we set to append user agent

Ill try some tests on my side to see if something breaks on my app, while i wait for your

If i see something break because of this ill report

Thank you!

> I have this report from a developer:
> We've recently upgraded from 2.2 to 2.5 on IOS.
> In 2.2, our application leveraged cached assets after a complete restart of the application.
 In 2.5 the same scenario always requests new assets from the web server.  The web server
has not changed, and it returns caching instructions with the content.  Once the application
is running, the cached assets are utilized as we expect.
> Is this by design?
