Greetings, I have an application that depends on WebSQL on Chrome iOS.
The openDatabase method intermittently throws SecurityError: DOM Exception 18.
I am using Chrome version 39.0.2171.50 and iOS 8.1 running on an iPhone 5s. My team has also seen this error appear on iPhone 5 and the PouchDB team has seen it appear in their automated tests for iPhone .
Here is a test case that exposes the bug:
Here is the specific code segments from the above test case that trigger the bug:
var db = openDatabase('mydatabase', 1, 'mydatabase', 50000000);
var db = openDatabase('mydatabase', '1', 'mydatabase', 50000000);
The bug is _intermittent_, so it doesn't always appear. Sometimes it appears right away, sometimes it takes refreshing the page, clearing all browser data, and force-quitting and restarting the browser in some combination. I am not sure what specific situations result in triggering this bug. I do know that refreshing the page does not make the exception go away once it has been expressed. However, force-quitting the browser *does* make the exception go away.
Thank you for your help with this issue.
I have a similar demo that causes a DOM Exception 11 in Chrome for iOS. Not sure if it's related to the DOM Exception 18 issue, but it might be: http://bl.ocks.org/nolanlawson/2cf0c9839ea8b64439ba
For some context, we are tracking this issue in PouchDB as well: https://github.com/pouchdb/pouchdb/issues/3382
I can no longer repro. I'm using Chrome 40.0.2214.69 in iOS 8.1.3 on an iPhone 6 Plus.
I also can no longer reproduce on my iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1.3 and Chrome 40.X.
