APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When using the WLClient API, a native page opened from within a
    hybrid application does not  have the cookies that were present
    in the rest of the application.  This is an issue, for example,
    if there a a strong dependency, such as session sharing, between
    the hybrid and native portions of the application.
    

Local fix

  • Use the method -(void) wlConnectWithDelegate:(id
    <WLDelegate>)delegate cookieExtractor:(WLCookieExtractor *)
    cookieExtractor to get the cookies.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Developers building hybrid iOS applications which open       *
    * native pages and expect cookies to have been shared with the *
    * native pages.                                                *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * A native page will not be able to participate in the same    *
    * session as the hybrid application was participating in.      *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * -                                                            *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was modified so that the native API will use the
    cookies from the shared web view.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpack 5.0.6.1.
