    Hi Olivier Bloch, this is a fantastic news for all Cordova developers. However, how to take advantages of this  Cordova integration e.g. debugging the running app on the existing Cordova or even Sencha Touch generated or direct projects? Like I use Sencha Touch to generate cordova project and after it how can I hook the Sencha Touch Project to the Cordova integration feature so I can use its amazing stuff on the Sencha Touch generated Cordova project. I am pretty sure this is a question for all other Sencha Touch and Cordova developers. I am looking forward to your reply. Cheers(please ignore the previous comment as I forgot to subscribe its follow-up comments via email, thank you)
