Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-298) DEPRECATE "plugins" and "PhoneGap" global objects in JavaScript implementation
Date Tue, 01 May 2012 20:38:54 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-298:

Did you see my comment:

Found the problem, it's a timing issue:
Before this function is called:

... cordova.exec is not defined yet.

I understand how deprecateFunctions works - in this case however, it can't "add" a deprecation
notice to .exec because the function doesn't exist in the cordova object at this point.

In any case, adding the PhoneGap and Cordova globals in common/common.js would suffice without
adding the (if (!window.PhoneGap)) in lib/cordova.js since deprecateFunctions does not work
(because of the reason I mentioned in the previous paragraph).
