I'm suddenly having a problem with JDK/JRE 7 that is preventing me from exporting a release build of our mobile application for iOS.
Running on Windows XP, Flash Builder 4.7 installed as a plug-in to SpringSource Tool Suite 3.1.0 (Eclipse Juno).
During the export of release build I'm hitting the following error:
Error occurred while packaging the application: Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Comparison method violates its general contract! at java.util.TimSort.mergeLo(Unknown Source) at java.util.TimSort.mergeAt(Unknown Source) at java.util.TimSort.mergeCollapse(Unknown Source) at java.util.TimSort.sort(Unknown Source) at java.util.TimSort.sort(Unknown Source) at java.util.Arrays.sort(Unknown Source) at adobe.abc.Algorithms$Pool.sort(Algorithms.java:377) at adobe.abc.GlobalOptimizer$Abc.sort(GlobalOptimizer.java:2667) at adobe.abc.GlobalOptimizer.emit(GlobalOptimizer.java:2787) at adobe.abc.LLVMEmitter.optimizeABCs(LLVMEmitter.java:527) at adobe.abc.LLVMEmitter.generateBitcode(LLVMEmitter.java:336) at com.adobe.air.ipa.AOTCompiler.convertAbcToLlvmBitcodeImpl(AOTCompiler.java:472) at com.adobe.air.ipa.BitcodeGenerator.main(BitcodeGenerator.java:82) Compilation failed while executing : ADT
This appears to be a known issue with some code when migrating from Java 6 to Java 7. Seemingly you can work around this by applying the following parameter:
Unfortunately I can't find where the java parameters that are used to launch the ADT are specified:
I've found the following files and updated them to include this parameter, but changes don't seem to be picked up by Flash Builder:
<install-dir>\Adobe\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7\sdks\4.6.0\bin\adt.bat <install-dir>\Adobe Flash Builder 4.7\eclipse\plugins\com.adobe.flash.compiler_22.214.171.1249722\AIRSDK\bin\adt.bat
Can anybody here help? Frustrating as this used to work. No idea what's changed.
PS - I've also tried rolling back to JDK/JRE 6. Same export release build process is giving a different errors about an uncaught C exception.
Strangely, if I run the generated Java/ADT command from a command line in the 'bin-release-temp' folder it will compile the IPA successfully (no additional parameters added). Not sure why this is running differently from w/in Flash Builder.
