Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-560) Cordova breaking iOS plugins
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 05:26:45 GMT
Chris Brody created CB-560:

             Summary: Cordova breaking iOS plugins
                 Key: CB-560
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: iOS
    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
         Environment: From!topic/phonegap/2G5OPKV_FdQ
someone apparently tried upgrading from PhoneGap 1.1 to 1.6.
            Reporter: Chris Brody
            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah
             Fix For: 1.7.0

>From 1.4 to 1.5, the namespace was changed from PhoneGap to Cordova which was breaking
all of the existing plugins. I eventually provided a shim class but it was too late to stop
the pain. Then in Javascript only Cordova was changed to cordova, breaking the iOS plugins
yet again. I noticed in cordova (1.6.0) JS:

if (!window.PhoneGap) {
    window.PhoneGap = cordova;

This should have been done for Cordova like:
if (!Cordova) {
 Cordova = cordova;

Yes we should be deprecating the old namespaces for removal in another major release. Any
API changes made before a major release should be made with a workaround, to be deprecated,
and tested with some plugins before shipping.
