Need help with compiling


Recommended Posts


I need some help with eclipse and ant. I`ve managed to configure everything according to instructions (I`ve changed everything what was needed in AndroidManifesxml, Strings.xml and local.properties). But when compiling error appears. Something about --version code being not specified: ERROR: No argument supplied for '--version-code' option. In which file I have to set this --version-code parameter? Please help.

Console log:

[exec] Package the android resources. It will read assets and resources that are
[exec] supplied with the -M -A -S or raw-files-dir arguments. The -J -P -F and -R
[exec] options control which files are output.
[exec] aapt r[emove] [-v] file.{zip,jar,apk} file1 [file2 ...]
[exec] Delete specified files from Zip-compatible archive.
[exec] aapt a[dd] [-v] file.{zip,jar,apk} file1 [file2 ...]
[exec] Add specified files to Zip-compatible archive.
[exec] aapt c[runch] [-v] -S resource-sources ... -C output-folder ...
[exec] Do PNG preprocessing and store the results in output folder.
[exec] aapt v[ersion]
[exec] Print program version.
[exec] Modifiers:
[exec] -a print Android-specific data (resources, manifest) when listing
[exec] -c specify which configurations to include. The default is all
[exec] configurations. The value of the parameter should be a comma
[exec] separated list of configuration values. Locales should be specified
[exec] as either a language or language-region pair. Some examples:
[exec] en
[exec] port,en
[exec] port,land,en_US
[exec] If you put the special locale, zz_ZZ on the list, it will perform
[exec] pseudolocalization on the default locale, modifying all of the
[exec] strings so you can look for strings that missed the
[exec] internationalization process. For example:
[exec] port,land,zz_ZZ
[exec] -d one or more device assets to include, separated by commas
[exec] -f force overwrite of existing files
[exec] -g specify a pixel tolerance to force images to grayscale, default 0
[exec] -j specify a jar or zip file containing classes to include
[exec] -k junk path of file(s) added
[exec] -m make package directories under location specified by -J
[exec] -u update existing packages (add new, replace older, remove deleted files)
[exec] -v verbose output
[exec] -x create extending (non-application) resource IDs
[exec] -z require localization of resource attributes marked with
[exec] localization="suggested"
[exec] -A additional directory in which to find raw asset files
[exec] -G A file to output proguard options into.
[exec] -F specify the apk file to output
[exec] -I add an existing package to base include set
[exec] -J specify where to output R.java resource constant definitions
[exec] -M specify full path to AndroidManifest.xml to include in zip
[exec] -P specify where to output public resource definitions
[exec] -S directory in which to find resources. Multiple directories will be scanned
[exec] and the first match found (left to right) will take precedence.
[exec] -0 specifies an additional extension for which such files will not
[exec] be stored compressed in the .apk. An empty string means to not
[exec] compress any files at all.
[exec] --debug-mode
[exec] inserts android:debuggable="true" in to the application node of the
[exec] manifest, making the application debuggable even on production devices.
[exec] --min-sdk-version
[exec] inserts android:minSdkVersion in to manifest. If the version is 7 or
[exec] higher, the default encoding for resources will be in UTF-8.
[exec] --target-sdk-version
[exec] inserts android:targetSdkVersion in to manifest.
[exec] --max-res-version
[exec] ignores versioned resource directories above the given value.
[exec] --values
[exec] when used with "dump resources" also includes resource values.
[exec] --version-code
[exec] inserts android:versionCode in to manifest.
[exec] --version-name
[exec] inserts android:versionName in to manifest.
[exec] --custom-package
[exec] generates R.java into a different package.
[exec] --extra-packages
[exec] generate R.java for libraries. Separate libraries with ':'.
[exec] --generate-dependencies
[exec] generate dependency files in the same directories for R.java and resource package
[exec] --auto-add-overlay
[exec] Automatically add resources that are only in overlays.
[exec] --preferred-configurations
[exec] Like the -c option for filtering out unneeded configurations, but
[exec] only expresses a preference. If there is no resource available with
[exec] the preferred configuration then it will not be stripped.
[exec] --rename-manifest-package
[exec] Rewrite the manifest so that its package name is the package name
[exec] given here. Relative class names (for example .Foo) will be
[exec] changed to absolute names with the old package so that the code
[exec] does not need to change.
[exec] --rename-instrumentation-target-package
[exec] Rewrite the manifest so that all of its instrumentation
[exec] components target the given package. Useful when used in
[exec] conjunction with --rename-manifest-package to fix tests against
[exec] a package that has been renamed.
[exec] --product
[exec] Specifies which variant to choose for strings that have
[exec] product variants
[exec] --utf16
[exec] changes default encoding for resources to UTF-16. Only useful when API
[exec] level is set to 7 or higher where the default encoding is UTF-8.
[exec] --non-constant-id
[exec] Make the resources ID non constant. This is required to make an R java class
[exec] that does not contain the final value but is used to make reusable compiled
[exec] libraries that need to access resources.
[exec] --error-on-failed-insert
[exec] Forces aapt to return an error if it fails to insert values into the manifest
[exec] with --debug-mode, --min-sdk-version, --target-sdk-version --version-code
[exec] and --version-name.
[exec] Insertion typically fails if the manifest already defines the attribute.
[exec] --output-text-symbols
[exec] Generates a text file containing the resource symbols of the R class in the
[exec] specified folder.
[exec] --ignore-assets
[exec] Assets to be ignored. Default pattern is:
[exec] !.svn:!.git:!.ds_store:!*.scc:.*:<dir>_*:!CVS:!thumbs.db:!picasa.ini:!*~
F:\android\eclipse_worskpace\InfoActivity\build.xml:57: exec returned: 2
Total time: 3 seconds

Strange thing, but when I delete two lines about "--version code" in build.xml everything is compiling ok!

Yes, version.code ant variable should be defined, it's defined by <android-sdk>/tools/ant/build.xml. For some reason it somehow is missing from your sdk tools, by default it's empty value so it's pretty safe to delete it or put <property name="version.code" value="" /> on the top of skin build.xml.
