Apache Cordova 3.3 and Remote Debugging for Android

· Java Zone

Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

A few weeks ago, Apache Cordova 3.3.0 was released (you can read the details here) and one of the things that caught my eye was this:

     CB-5487 Enable Remote Debugging when your Android app is debuggable. 

Chrome Remote Debugging is a cool feature, but so far it had not been available with PhoneGap apps. I can confirm that with a Cordova 3.3.0 project, this works great. I made a virgin project, launched it (in the emulator), and it showed up right away as a debuggable device. (Note that your emulator has to be using Android 4.4 or higher.)

And just to prove it works, I went into the DOM, modified it, and it showed up live in the app itself.
