Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-1403) camera.getPicture crashes moto Droid X with large images using DATA_URL
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2012 02:24:07 GMT


Simon MacDonald resolved CB-1403.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Sadly there is nothing we can do about this one. When your Base64 encode an image that big
the string data gets too big causing an out of memory exception in the JVM. OOM exceptions
should never be caught since the JVM is in an unusable state once it is thrown so we are toast.

>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.0, 2.0.0
>         Environment: Moto Droid X, Android 2.3.4, Kernel
>            Reporter: Phil T.
>            Assignee: Joe Bowser
> When using on Moto Droid X and the DATA_URL option, large
return buffers will crash the app at the point of getPicture (generating a toast with force
close).  Here's a sample of the code:
>, onFail,
>         { quality: 100,
>             destinationType: Camera.DestinationType.DATA_URL
>         }
>     );
> This code appears to function correctly on other devices we have tested that are running
Android 2.3.4.  The issue is only seen on our Droid X devices (we have tried two different
Droid X's).
> Reducing the image size by lowering the quality to 20 or below will allow the program
to process correctly.  This can also be accomplished by shrinking the image size using the
targetHeight/targetWidth options.
