Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-209) Improve ios upgrade procedure to take burden off of end developer
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2012 05:45:10 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-209:

The upgrade procedure has been improved for 1.4:

Your existing project will work, but the classes it depends on have been deprecated and may
be removed in a future version.
Sorry - things will break sometimes but we try to minimize it, and hopefully an upgrade guide

For upgrades, in 1.4 the significant change is to AppDelegate.* only.

Feedback on the guide welcome!

>          Issue Type: Improvement

>    Affects Versions: 1.3.0

>            Priority: Critical
> Currently to upgrade phone gap to a new version it is recommended that you create a completely
new phone gap project and then migrate your settings across to the new project.
> This is problematic for a number of reasons:
> 1. There are many settings that have to be transfered, including splash images and icons,
external hosts, code signing setup, orientations and more.  It is onerous to have to manually
set these up every time you want to use a new version of phone gap.
> 2. It breaks your source control since the new project is not under source control, it
also breaks your archives within XCode.
> Compare this with upgrading to a new phone gap version for Android where all you need
to do is change the .jar and .js file.
> Having to manually re-create your project for a new version in ios is a significant barrier
and can be a huge time sync.
> What is needed is an upgrade mechanism that is similar to Android, the end developer
should not be re-creating a project for new versions.
