When creating an Android environment for a Worklight application, Worklight will automatically set the minimum supported Android API level for your application (via the android:minSdkVersion attribute in AndroidManifest.xml) to the lowest Android API level installed on your system. In the event that you wish to target a higher Android API Level (via the android:targetSdkVersion attribute in AndroidManifest.xml), special care must be taken. When the target Android API level is greater than or equal to 13, a new configuration change named "screenSize" will be sent to your application upon a screen rotation. Unless you specifically handle that event (via the android:configChanges attribute in AndroidManifest.xml), your application will crash when a screen rotation occurs when running on an Android device that supports an Android API level greater than or equal to 13.
Resolving the problem
Any Android application that targets an Android API level greater than or equal to 13 must include the "screenSize" configuration change in the android:configChanges attribute of AndroidManifest.xml.
