Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-675) Allow multiple versions of PhoneGap to be installed in Xcode
Date Wed, 09 May 2012 20:27:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-675?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13271768#comment-13271768

Andrew Trice commented on CB-675:
---------------------------------

Brian asked me to enter this as a bug.  It should be more intuitive by default.  If a developer
is working on project A using PhoneGap 1.4, starts project B using PhoneGap 1.7, then project
A now has bugs b/c PhoneGap 1.7 was installed.   PhoneGap/Cordova developers mostly do not
know much about native development, and we should not make them jump through hoops.  There
needs to be atomicity in a PhoneGap.Cordova project.

> There is one thing that is driving me crazy with PhoneGap.  Currently in OSX, the Xcode
project always references the machine's PhoneGap library.  For a single project, this is fine.
 If you have multiple projects on your machine, and they use different versions of the PhoneGap
SDK, then there is no way to easily manage the correct version of the SDK.  Whether your project
is PhoneGap 1.5 or 1.7, it will reference the last installed SDK.   If you try and run a PhoneGap
1.5 app on a machine where you last installed the 1.7 RC, then the 1.5 app is likely to have
errors (compiler errors from changes in the SDK, as well as JS errors).   It would be great
to have either versioned SDK libraries so that you can have multiple PhoneGap versions installed
at the same time, or have a reference to the PhoneGap library in each project, so that installing
a new SDK doesn't break older projects.
