Subject Re: [Android] Can we get rid of the Callback Server/Hanging GET now?
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2012 00:25:38 GMT
ONLINE_EVENTS and JS_OBJECT are the fastest and have no bugs that I've
found. As soon as 2.1 ships, let's make the switch. I don't think devs
should need to know about the bridge modes unless there becomes a reason to
expose this to them.

With several other options other than callback server, I think we should
get rid of it since it's a fair amount of code and complexity.
