Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-506) images taken via Camera.getPicture do not get deleted
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 15:54:51 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-506:

Since Camera.getPicture is a PhoneGap API not based on any W3C spec, we can make whatever
changes we deem necessary.

That said, there were plans to deprecate this API and suggest to users to roll with the Capture
API, which, as far as I understand, does not take into account any of the issues brought up

> images taken with camera.getPicture are stored in the temporary directory. There is code
in applicationWillTerminate to delete the temporary directory.  However, in a multitasking
app this method is never called.   The contents of this directory do not get backed up, but
it is also not getting deleted.  Seems like the only solution is to require the developer
to clean out the temp directory since they know when it is appropriate to do so.  We can leave
the code in applicationWillTerminate for apps which set UIApplicationExistsOnSuspend in the
plist since it IS called.  
> Could discuss adding a method to Camera to do clean up rather than requiring devs. to
use the File api's.  Will need to negotiate with other platforms to see if this makes sense.
 Will add a dependency in Camera to File Plugin.
