Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-250) [android] app crashes when DNS lookup fails
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2012 11:20:59 GMT


Maciej Jaros commented on CB-250:

The issue also occurs when you don't have a WiFi (or other connection) active - not sure if
Android throws the same error then (I'm guessing it might be ERROR_CONNECT or ERROR_TIMEOUT).

As for the behavior - I would expect nothing to be loaded or reload - maybe just an alert
could be displayed. If reloading is easier (e.g. WebView already loads the new page when the
error occurs), then that would be acceptable if you ask me.
