> plugins.xml on Android and PhoneGap.plist are used to define a new plugin. They both
use a short name (e.g. MyPlugin) and a fully qualified name (e.g. com.MyCompany.MyPlugin)
to describe a plugin, however the meaning of the parameter #3 in PhoneGap.exec function is
different. In Android case you need to write:
> PhoneGap.exec(success, error, "MyPlugin", "method", [params]);
> while in iOS case id should be:
> PhoneGap.exec(success, error, "com.MyCompany.MyPlugin", "method", [params]);
> It results in necessity of having two different JS files with custom plugin definitions,
which could be avoided if we use the same convention on both platforms. I think, using FQN
is a better option and that's why it should be fixed on Android.
> A work around to avoid deploying two different JS files is to use something like this
in plugins.xml on Android:
> <plugin name="com.MyCompany.MyPlugin" value="com.MyCompany.MyPlugin"/>
> It works, but it looks really ugly.
