Cordova 2.9.0: “[ERROR] Error initializing Cordova: Class not found”


When I preview a page of my Android app with cordova.js (2.9.0) in Google Chrome, the page appears with an alert message saying,

The page at file://localhost/ says:
[ ]
gap:["Device","getDeviceInfo","Device1830682625"]
Cancel, OK

If I click on OK another alert appears, saying:

The page at file://localhost/ says:
[ ]
gap:["Device","getDeviceInfo","Device889844386"]
Cancel, OK

When I click on OK, the alert stops with no issues. These alerts pop up only on pages where cordova.js (2.9.0) are called, such as when the page contains external links and invokes the InAppBrowser. No other pages are affected.

I get these alerts on the Mac and PC. I’ve never received these alerts before 2.9.0. Continue reading
