Android package contents in Flash Builder 4.5 : file list doesn't update

Oct 28, 2011 10:58 AM

Tags: #flash_builder #export #apk

I keep hitting what looks like a bug in Flash Builder 4.5, and I'm wondering if anyone else has seen it or can help me find a workaround.

 

The problem occurs when I choose Export Release Build... and try to build an APK for Android. In the second screen of the wizard, under the Package Contents tab, there's a file list and you're supposed to select the files you want in the package. Simple enough. The problem is that this file list does not consistently reflect updates to the project file structure. So I usually see an outdated file list, which might or might not have all the files I actually need to put into the package.

 

There doesn't seem to be a way to force the wizard to rescan the project and rebuild this list. I've tried restarting Flash Builder, deleting bin-release-temp, cleaning all projects, and a few other things besides. So far nothing works. (The Flash view always picks up my changes within a few seconds.)

 

It seems like my only option is to use the command-line compiler. Not the end of the world, but I'd rather that the wizard just do what it's supposed to do.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

    I ran into this recently - I realized that I was trying to add files that existed in the output folder, but FB is looking at your source folders to scan for available files.

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for bringing this up.

    The bug is Export release build  page does not list the files correctly that it is packaging.

     

    We have filled this bug.

     

    Regards,

    Brijesh

    I had the same problem. I don't know if it is relevant or not but I'm using tortise SVN. I noticed I had an un-versioned directory named "bin-release-temp" that didn't have my missing assets/images direcories in it. I did an SVN export of the missing files to the bin-release-temp directory an viola, the missing directories showed in the package list and were compiled into the APK I was building. HTH.

    Ex Malterra's work around was the only thing that would work for me on Flash Builder 4.6.  I had to go through the Export Release Build process, but stop when it came time to selecting the Package Contents.  I then clicked cancel, and found the "bin-release-temp" directory (a sibling of the src and bin-debug directories).  I then copied the missing assets to their correct places in the bin-release-temp directory.  This bug really needs to be fixed.  I looked through JIRA but could not find the bug that BrijeshP stated was filed.

    Also if you notice folders listed in this list that are no longer in your project, I found that deleting the bin-debug folder fixed this. You would think that a project clean would do this automatically, but it does not.

    I'd just like to say that almost nearly 2 years later this bug continues to happen even with Flash Builder 4.7

    Still same problem also with building for Apple iOS! As a workaround I have to manually copy the files from the bin-debug folder to the bin-release-temp folder. Then select Keep bin-release-temp folder within Export Release Build window and select the resources I want to export. Can anyone confirm this issue?

    Are we able to view this bug report anywhere? Perhaps we could at least vote for it?
