Description Nikunj Mehta 2009-09-21 17:08:23 UTC
The spec lists only four states of an application cache - idle, checking, downloading, and obsolete. However, an ApplicationCache object has more states.
  const unsigned short UNCACHED = 0;
  const unsigned short IDLE = 1;
  const unsigned short CHECKING = 2;
  const unsigned short DOWNLOADING = 3;
  const unsigned short UPDATEREADY = 4;
  const unsigned short OBSOLETE = 5;
  readonly attribute unsigned short status;

There are two states here that are not referenced in the spec text - uncached and updateready. uncached is never mentioned in the text except in the IDL. updateready is mentioned as an event but appears nowhere as a status.

I don't understand where you would want them to appear... they are defined, and used for the value of the "status" attribute:

What more is needed?
Comment 2 Nikunj Mehta 2009-09-29 16:16:52 UTC
A result of application cache being distinct from ApplicationCache
