Subject [jira] [Updated] (CB-481) Patch Android cordova.js to call exec() instead of directly calling prompt()
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2012 15:57:33 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-481?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Filip Maj updated CB-481:
-------------------------

    Description: 
The final call in Android's cordova-js after everything is ready is to tell native to unhide
the webview. This is done via a {{prompt}} call with string "gap_init" or something along
those lines.

While this is fine, we already have the {{exec}} module in place to handle webview -> native
communication. We should use that instead. It's kind of foolish to go one level below {{exec}}
when we have the {{exec}} abstraction available and in place already.

This would also help the testing tool Ripple: Android Cordova apps being emulated in Ripple
would no longer see an annoying prompt following app startup!

Bottom line: {{exec}} is our go-to for calling into native. Circumventing an abstraction we
put into place does not make any sense, and unifies how our bridge works.

        Summary: Patch Android cordova.js to call exec() instead of directly calling prompt()
 (was: Android initialize() method calls prompt('gap:init') to tell native to unhide webview)
