Sprint:2015 Sprint 12 SDK
I have created a native module that has some code in an onStart() method - when importing this module in my alloy controller using require(), the onStart() method is called when the root activity is started when using Titanium SDK 3.2.3.GA, but when using 3.3.0, it is never called.
I have properly declared the module in my tiapp.xml and my onStart() method is pretty simple:
In 3.2.3.GA I see the debug message in the logcat output - but using 3.3.0.GA I never see it (however I do see the onPause and onStop lifecycle methods are properly called.
My native module depends on some initialization code in onStart that cannot be moved to onAppCreate, so it's currently failing as onStart is never called (nor is onPause which is a bit suspect).
Also, for a non-Alloy app, this does not happen – all of the lifecycle methods, including onStart are called as expected.
1. Download the module from this link
2. Create a titanium classic project
3. Paste this code:
1. Create a new alloy project
2. Paste this to index.js:
3. Run it in a device.
