Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-330) localStorage / SQLDatabase no longer persistent after iOS 5.01 Update
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2012 13:17:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-330?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13236572#comment-13236572

Siep de Vries commented on CB-330:
----------------------------------

I tested the (previous) plugin and it seems to work nice, taking above comments in consideration.
I however have a question. In the code, I see quite some calls like (IsiOSVersion(@"5.1"))
? @"Library/Caches" : @"Library/WebKit" to determine which path should be used. I must say,
I'm not familiar with the call IsiOSVersion, but what happens if Apple plans to rollout iOS5.2
or iOS6.0? Will these checks then return the old paths instead of the new paths?

> Dear Dev
> WebKit data (localstorage or local SQLite) are now stored in Library/ Caches folder (instead
of Library/WebKit folder). This is a big problem for all apps using UIWebView and storing
user data, because they will no longer be backed up and may be deleted. There are a lot of
apps using localstorage or SQLite as a critical feature. 
> The SQLite database gets deleted because the database is saved in a location on the filesystem
which Apple does not consider to contain persistent data.
> *Steps to Reproduce:* 
> In a UIWebView, create a new DB or use localStorage with JavaScript. 
> You can see that the WebKit data is now stored in Library/Caches :  
> *Expected Results:*
> We should at least specify the directory of WebKit data (and to set it 
> to Documents/ for critical data) 
> *Actual Results:* 
> The WebKit data are stored in Library/Caches folder, and can be 
> deleted 
> *Regression:*
> To migrate database location from Library/Caches to some other location such as Documents.
