Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-11592) Crashes due to android 7.0 "file://" Handling "android.os.FileUriExposedException"
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2016 18:01:20 GMT


Joe Bowser resolved CB-11592.
    Resolution: Incomplete

I'm going to keep the more precise ticket open, but the file:// limitation is caused by sharing
file URIs across Intents, which is Cross-Process communication.  Since the File API and InAppBrowser
both don't do this (InAppBrowser uses a WebView inside a dialog box, which is odd, but not
a separate process), I'm going to close this because we don't have a repro case for both of
those, and keep the issue that it's related to open, because I still need to merge the API24
branches back into master for a 6.0.0 release of Cordova-Android.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android, Plugin Camera, Plugin File, Plugin InAppBrowser
>         Environment: all Environemnts with android 7.0
>            Reporter: Christoph Brosdau
>            Assignee: Joe Bowser
>            Priority: Blocker
> Android 7.0 removes the "file://" Protocol or to be more precise, removes the possibility
to share URIs with "file://" Protocol outside the Scope of the own App. If some Code tries
this, the result is "android.os.FileUriExposedException".
> This affects a variety of Plugins:
> - inAppBrowser: opening a file:// URI (e.g. to show a downloaded PDF) crasehs the app,

> - Camera crashes immediately: opening a cached File by "ClipData.Item.getUri()"
> - possible a couple of the File Plugin Methods
