Config.xml line: xmlns:gap = ""

One might think that the config.xml line
xmlns:gap = “
is not needed any more when one builds with VoltBuilder instead of with PhoneGap.
This line is even included in latest VoltBuilder sample config.xml.
Using the URL directly one would get error 404 (not found).
Because I got a symtax error message after having commented solely this line I uncommented the line and there - as before - was no error message.
Is there a reason why the line
xmlns:gap = “
still could be needed?

Do you have any lines in your config which start with <gap: ?

The CordovaCamera sample e.g. does have several lines with <gap:
My current config solely has:

   <gap:platform name="android" />

I think I was aware that PG some time ago said gap: was obsolete. Leaving gap: seemed not to hurt.

With these changes (xmlns and gap:) in config I could get a new build:

id = "de.bsommer.fristen"
versionCode = "1"
version = "{version}">


<icon src='{icon}' />

<preference name="SplashScreenDelay" value="2000" />
<preference name="AutoHideSplashScreen" value="true" />
<plugin name='cordova-plugin-splashscreen' source='npm' />

<preference name="permissions" value="none"/>

<!-- Platforms: Customize as needed. -->
   <platform name="android" />

<plugin name="cordova-plugin-statusbar" source="npm" />
  <preference name="StatusBarOverlaysWebView" value="{phoneGapStatusBarOverlay}" />
  <preference name="StatusBarBackgroundColor" value="{phoneGapStatusBarColor}" />
  <preference name="StatusBarStyle" value="{phoneGapStatusBarStyle}" />

<plugin name="cordova-plugin-whitelist" source="npm" />
  <allow-navigation href="*" />
  <access origin="*" />
  <allow-intent href="*" />

Could config.xml in samples be updated? Might be a bit confusing when samples,, cordova and AppStudio docs tell slightly different things and it is not explained why this or that.

Good suggestion!

The VoltBuilder Camera sample has a line:
android-versionCode = “{phoneGapBuildCounter}”
while there is no property phoneGapBuildCounter.
There is a new property BuildCounter.
Testing if one could replace “{phoneGapBuildCounter}”
with “{BuildCounter}” I would get

Makes me assume that the android-versionCode line is redundant or obsolete?

The BuildCounter property is called phoneGapBuildCounter internally - so keep it as is.

android-versionCode = “{phoneGapBuildCounter}”

Thanks. OK.
