Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11833) versionCode is no longer altered by build.gradle, breaking version continuity
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2016 21:33:20 GMT


Stephen Warren commented on CB-11833:

You could have at least provided some warning when implementing this change.  I'm looking
for documentation for this androidVersionCode feature now.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>      Security Level: Public(Anyone can view this level - this is the default.) 
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 5.2.1
>         Environment: Android 6.0/Mac OS X

> Previous versions of the build.gradle file contained this line in the defaultConfig:
> versionCode cdvVersionCode ?: Integer.parseInt("" + privateHelpers.extractIntFromManifest("versionCode")
+ "0")
> The new Cordova version leaves out the '+ "0" ', which is breaking the continuity of
version numbers in our application. When we attempt to install a new version without the edited
versionCode,we receive this error:
> 09-09 12:20:39.795 1248-1274/? W/PackageManager: Downgrade detected: Update version code
30400 is older than current 303010
> 09-09 12:20:39.919 21984-21984/? D/InstallAppProgress: Installation error code: -25
> New builds will inevitably be "older" than the previously built version numbers with
the '0' appended to the end.  Why this has not been reported until now, I don't understand.
 For now I fix this by editing the build.gradle file back to the way it was before this Cordova
> Note: this is actually affecting version 5.2.2 on Android, but I was unable to choose
5.2.2 from the pulldown menu.
