In the case of iOS, this means developers need a Mac OS X system with both Xcode and the iOS SDK installed, as well as the Cordova libraries from Android local build requirements are similar, but requiring Eclipse and the Android SDK instead. In both cases, developers must manually manage wm.xhrPath for final deployment.

The setup of the build environment can be time consuming. However, once successfully configured, the build/test cycles with the local build are much faster, providing a more productive development environment. The emulators in the development kits provide...
