Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-347) localStorage / SQLDatabase Error after App update
Date Tue, 24 Apr 2012 22:10:05 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-347:

Looking at the code, the fix is applied here:

But the page is loaded here:

There shouldn't be security errors before the page is loaded since there would be no calls
to localStorage/WebSQL.

So the sequence of events appears to be correct, and they should occur synchronously. The
only thing is, the UIWebView is created first before either of the code blocks, and perhaps
during the UIWebView initialization, it picks up the .plist values. 

In my testing, and probably in other users' testing when they tested the patch, this UIWebView
initialization of .plist values happens *after* the patch is applied (a fluke of timing),
so everything appears ok - while in your case, it is the opposite.

The evidence points to the UIWebView picking up the .plist locations after it is instantiated
(which makes sense if one was to design the class), but before a request is handled.

The fix for this would be to apply the patch before the UIWebView is instantiated.
