Subject File API error inconsistency
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2012 14:54:02 GMT
I've been working through the File API mobile-spec failures on
BlackBerry and have encountered some inconsistency in how error codes
in the JS are handled.  Some of the JS API
(DirectoryEntry.removeRecursively, DirectoryReader.readEntries,
Entry,getMetadata, Entry.getParent, window.requestFileSystem) expect
the native side to return a FileError object in the error result,
while the rest expect the native side to just return an integer error
code (which is used on JS side to create FileError object).

Should the native code return a FileError object or just the integer
error code?  We need to choose one because it is too error
prone/frustrating right now to try to get the native side to properly
handle the error for each individual API.
