Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-298) DEPRECATE and then remove "plugins" and "PhoneGap" global objects from JavaScript implementation
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 19:42:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-298?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13238727#comment-13238727

Filip Maj commented on CB-298:
------------------------------

{{addConstructor}} was added to the cordova module in cordova-js for backwards compatibility.

{{hasResource}} and {{addResource}} do not exist in cordova-js.

As far some guidance on how to move over, I would recommend employing cordova's {{define}}
and {{require}} in cordova-js. For a {{hasResource}} equivalent, I would check if {{cordova.require('mymoduleid')}}
throws an exception. If so, then go ahead and use {{cordova.define}}. If not, it's already
defined, as the user does in your above example, simply {{return}} out. In the same vein,
{{cordova.define}} can be used as a replacement for {{addResource}}.

The only other change would be to the call to {{exec}}. Users can go with either calling {{cordova.exec}}
directly, or if they want to use the same {{require}} syntax they can roll with {{cordova.require('cordova/exec')}}.
