Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1152) Document AndroidManifest.xml Update to Avoid Orientation Crashes
Date Sat, 28 Jul 2012 17:04:33 GMT


Michael Brooks commented on CB-1152:

[~dantart] After moving to Apache, the documentation lost it's Github service hook to auto-generate
the documentation. I'll deploy the docs soon. You can find [~bowserj]'s docs commit [here|;a=commit;h=b4f5ca277bdd9bb532f8c0a49a19218556c10885].

[~mgcrea] apparently this issue is only present when the user creates a project with Eclipse.
For the CLI, we provide the default {{AndroidManifest.xml}}, which is already patched. On
the note about CLI Guide v.s. IDE Guides, you're right. We need should be encompassing both
under Getting Started and sectioning them as Using the Command-Line and Using the IDE - with
heavy emphasis on the Command-Line. Once the command-line is solid, we'll probably move the
IDE guides to the plugin development section.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: Android, Docs
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>         Environment: /docs/en/2.0.0/guide/getting-started/android/
>            Reporter: Michael Brooks
>            Assignee: Joe Bowser
>             Fix For: 2.0.0
> Recently, a bug was discovered in Android that causes Ice Cream Sandwich apps to crash
when the orientation changes. This is not a bug with Apache Cordova, but instead an issue
with Android's SDK.
> Regardless, [~bowserj] has solved this problem with an update to the {{AndroidManifest.xml}}.
The update will be included in the Apache Cordova 2.1.0 distribution, but that does not help
2.0.0 users.
> Please add a documentation note to the Android Getting Started Guide on how to update
the {{AndroidManifest.xml}} to avoid this issue.
> Details about this issue can be found at #CB-1147
