I would like to build and android project from command line on Linux. In the root directory of the project there are the following files and directories: AndroidManifest.xml build.xml default.properties res/ src/. Can you provide a sample Makefile how to build this project?
Somethings I'll have an? .xml file selected when I compile a project, only to have a? .out.xml generated. Deleting the file doesn't clear the error, and Eclipse won't compile the project. It just reports that your project contains errors. The solution is to go to Project/Clean. This will clear the error in the project and allow it to compile.
I'm updating my application to take advantage of Android library projects. While I can get everything to build fine within Eclipse, I'm stuck trying to update my build.sh script to support library projects. At the moment, I can't figure out what options to pass to appt to tell it to look at my library projects when building my main project. Checking aapt--help has not been illuminating so far. Any suggestions?
Probably a simple question but I've developed an app that has always been using a build target of 1.5 without issue. However, now I'm adding TextToSpeech which was introduced in 1.6. I've created a TextToSpeech wrapper that encapsulates the TextToSpeech code and I have checks in the activity so that when it does run, it should only work for 1.6 devices and above. But the trick is to get the code to run in Eclipse with a build target of 1.5. When I try to do that, of course, I get the following errors tied to my TextToSpeech wrapper class: TextToSpeech cannot be resolved." I've played around with exporting as jar, creating a library project, etc. but I cannot seem to get those to work. For a library project, it says that dependent projects must have the same or higher API level so it won't work. Some relevant code excerpts: Code...
I am a beginner in Android programming. I was going through the official tutorial on Android developer site. When I copied the codes for the Grid View tutorial to Eclipse, many red wave underlines appeared which are not allowing me to compile. Every time I click the run button, it says "Your project contains error(s), please fix them before running your application." I am using a WIN7 and followed every single step that is necessary for setting up the envrionment. I had no problem at with previous tutorials such as Hello Android, Linear Layout, Relative Layout, and Table View.
So i am wanting to fiddle around with the new sdk but I never learned how to use command line in any IDE. Anyways I need to create an AVD with the command line can someone please tell me the steps or tell me somewhere I can read up on this. I have tried google searching command line eclipse, but the only results I get are nifty commands I can use once I actually find out how to get a command line. I am using windows.
I'm still pretty new to Android and programming in general, and I can't seem to get the command line tools packaged with the Android SDK to work. I'm running Mac OSX and each time I try to run layoutopt, for example, the terminal returns, *-bash: cmd: command not found. Also, is it okay to have my SDK located in the Developer directory and my android project in some unrelated directory when using these tools?
Read through Couple of articles , Most of them point to the DDMS through that we could take the Screenshot. However i am trying to capture the Emulator screen from the Command Line. Not Sure how to tweak the framebuffer /Surface flinger to do the job. or is there any app that we could run in the background and get the job done.
Code: make: /home/dm47021/Android/toolchains/arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-linaro_4.8.2-2013.08/bin/arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-gcc: Command not found /bin/bash: /scripts/gcc-version.sh: No such file or directory
I can't figure out how to get the platform files for development, without running 'android' and starting the GUI. I want to avoid running GUI applications on my dev server, since it's headless and I don't want to forward X particularly. I can't imagine that it does anything more than figure out your platform, pull down a tarball and unpack it, surely this doesn't necessitate a gui, does anyone know how I can get the platform files without it?
Does anyone know if there is an application that will send command lines to a PC? I would like to use this to either both launch programs and send other commands (such as changing the audio output on my PC). I am able to do this by creating shortcuts to the commands, then using a remote program (like premotedroid) to control the mouse and click the shortcuts, but it would be really cool if the phone could just send the command directly to the PC.
I am trying to test how my activity responds to an intent. I can write a test activity and send my intent. I am wondering if there is a command line tool to just send an intent. I looked at "am" tool. When I use "am -D INTENT", I get "your application is waiting for debugger connection" popup. Is there any way to skip this popup?
I want to build the .apk file from java binary file (.class) or .dex file. I have copied the bin+res folder and Manifest.xml file to a specified folder. and run the command :[apkbuilder.bat %FILE_NAME% -rf "./src_folderr"]. This command build the new .APK file with default keystore. But I want to build the APK with me generated keystore, with command line as this :[apkbuilder.bat %FILE_NAME% -rf "./src_folder" -storetype path_to_my_release_keystore.keystore] but it can not find my keystore with "java.security.KeyStoreException : release.keystore not found". How can I build APK file with my keystore file?
I am going mad trying obfuscating my projects on Netbeans and it's not reasonable at the moment for me to switch to Eclipse I need a command line script that let me build and obfuscate my APK. Is there some example script, or some tutorial that could help me in this "intent"?
I'm configuring emacs to debug android apps. My problem is since I'm attaching jdb to DDMS I cannot set proper classpath (jdb just won't start when I try to set -classpath and -attach together). So jdb is practically blind - no entry point for class, no interactive debugging. How can I specify classpath when attaching debugger to ddms?
I have an interesting problem: My boss/the-marketing-team want to be able to distribute a separate version of our application to a number of 'partners'. The application itself would be *exactly* the same app, except that they'd like a partner-specific property to be passed to our web-service when the app runs (for tracking). The last thing I want to do is have 'n' builds of the product, each with a single constant changed (or a difference in the Manifest). This would be a maintenance nightmare, as well as the obvious issues you have when you have multiple mostly-identical versions of a product floating around.
I also suspect the Android Market would have a problem with "MyProduct for X users", "MyProduct for Y users", etc. Showing up for download. In a perfect world everyone would download the same app, and there would be some cool undiscovered Android feature where the Market URL could include "&vendorcode=X" that would be passed into the app on install. My question is this: Since the install process would be initiated by the user clicking on a link in their browser of choice (on the Android device), is there *any* way that the web server could be sent some 'device specific identifier' by the browser that would also be available to my APK? (In this way the web server would be able to match up the original install request and the first run of the app after install).
I am new to the development, i have created a database and i have inserted values using eclipse code and i have successes on that But i want to see where this database exists, i have checked on tools directory from command prompt and if i query the table using select , it is saying that no table exists, Can anyone please tell me that how to access database from command line?
An emulator is running. adb server is running. "adb devices" lists correctly and I can see my instance on an avd in the output.
However when I manually start DDMS from the command line it just keeps trying to connect. I can find no connection config issues. (yes, it works from within eclipse and ddms shows threads etc)
System : Debian Squeeze
I ran update-java-alternatives to be sure java was set up properly for "Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_20-b02)" . Not too much of a surprise to seasoned Debian users my Java is now worse ... When I run ddms from the command line I get :--
How can i create avd from command line with keyboard support? (I was able to create avd from commandline using: android create avd. but I don't know how to enable keyboard support into this). even android documentaion/help doesn't any thing about this.
How can I build and signed (keystore) the .apk file using 'apkbuilder.bat' via windows command-line? I try to run the following line: apkbuilder.bat %APK_File_Name% -u -z %Project_Path%in esources.ap_ -f %Project_Path%inclasses.dex -rf %Project_Path%. But I'm getting the following exception: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 1 at com.android.sdklib.build.ApkBuilderMain.main<ApkBuilderMain.java:61>.
We are able to run instrumentation tests of Android from the command line on Windows by launching: adb shell am instrument -w <package.test>/android.test.InstrumentationTestRunner. This gives us good results. Using the same architecture, we are unable to run the same in Kubuntu. We have the same setup in Kubuntu. Can someone let us know, if there are packages with same name.. Then what package will the adb shell point? How will the emulator connect with adb shell from cmd line? DO we need to do any changes to do so in Kubuntu?
So far Ive managed to download and install the SDK and its in my PATH. Problem now is that I can't run "android update sdk" since it expects to be connected to a display and Im connected to a remote headless server through ssh (its a build server so there's no desktop env). Is there a command-line option for the android tool that tells it to run without X ?
I've installed Ant. From an existing Eclipse project I am able to generate the build.xml file from the command line using ant -update project. When I now try ant release I get this error: build.xml:65: java.lang.NullPointerException. This project builds fine under Eclipse. I have no idea where to even begin to figure this out. I wouldn't bother with this except that I need to use ProGuard later on (which I have not done yet).
I'm trying to run unit tests on the android platform in accordance with tutorial. Say, for example, I want to run tests for Email application. I open /apps/Email/tests/AndroidManifest.xml file, look for the <manifest> element, and look at the package attribute, which is com.android.email.tests, and in the <instrumentation> element I look at the android:name attribute, which is android.test.InstrumentationTestRunner.
