Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-291) PhonGap.exec Plugin Parameter is Different on iOS and Android
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 00:02:56 GMT
PhonGap.exec Plugin Parameter is Different on iOS and Android

                 Key: CB-291
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Android
    Affects Versions: 1.4.0
         Environment: iOS, Android, Mac OSX 10.7
            Reporter: Oleg Gryb
            Assignee: Joe Bowser

plugins.xml on Android and PhoneGap.phlist 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.
