The attached (private) sample project will load correctly on Android 4.4, but on Android 4.1.2 an exception is thrown:
"I/mono-stdout( 1758): Unhandled error: Uncaught Error: SECURITY_ERR: DOM Exception 18"
## Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the sample project on an Android 4.1.2 (API 16) emulator.
2. Run logcat to see the exception once the app finishes launching.
## Actual Results:
The apps WebView is blank and the exception is thrown.
## Expected Results:
WebView should display the same content as when running on Android 4.4
## Build Date & Platform:
Tested on XA 4.14 and XA 4.12.4
## Additional Information:
This looks similar to the bug reported here: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=16175
This workaround did not work: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8390985/android-4-0-1-breaks-webview-html-5-local-storage
It is theorized that the WebView might be ignoring the AllowFileAccessFromFileURLs and/or AllowUniversalAccessFromFileURLs settings (which are set to 'true' in the sample project) on API 16. The WebView may be treating the files it's loading as a cross-site resource.
I have checked this issue and with the help of bug description and "Comment 1" I am able to reproduce this issue.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached sample from "Commnet 1" on XS
2. Deploy the sample application on API 16 emulator.
When I deploy the attached sample on API 16 emulator I observed that emulator shows a blank screen and the adb logs contains the unhandled "DOM Exception 18" exception i.e.
"Unhandled error: Uncaught Error: SECURITY_ERR: DOM Exception 18: url : file:///data/data/RavenHybridAndroid.RavenHybridAndroid/files/lib/Lawnchair-dom-adapter.js : at : 13".
I also observed that when I deploy the same application on device (4.4.2) application is working fine.
