Questions of the Week 34

While I find these posts useful I think it’s time to re-think this post which is overly mechanical and only post interesting news from the week rather than "everything". So this week we’ll try something new, I’ll discuss the news in general and the questions/answers I find valuable only. I’ll ignore the other questions and this should make the post more "digestible".

peopletookallthegoodnames asked about Storage to FileSystemStorage mapping here. This is a problematic subject. Storage is an abstraction, the fact that the implementation can be seen sometimes within the FileSystemStorage is a "leak" within the abstraction.

We considered hardening the abstraction by making this impractical in the simulator but that would break running apps and we don’t want to get into that at this time.

HelloWorld showed why it’s important to ask on stackoverflow…​ We don’t currently support Java 8 operations in native Android code but following his question we added an experimental feature that might allow this.

Stefan literally took the sample code from our javascript JavaDocs and tried to run it and it seems it didn’t work apparently this code should be executed after the page loads which makes it a bit harder to bind properly.
