Subject Re: Cordova-Android jar generation problem
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 01:13:49 GMT
When you generate the jar successfully after running ant jar, it should
exist directly under the /framework directory (cordova.1.5.0rc1.jar).

Next step is to take this jar and replace the cordova.jar that already
exists in your specific phonegap/cordova application. So from a fresh
start, the process would be:

1. Generate a new Cordova Android application by running ./bin/create
<directory where new cordova app should reside> <package name>
<application name> (I.e. ./bin/create ~/src/myApp com.phonegap.myApp MyApp)
2. Make some changes to the native code under the /framework dir.
3. Cd into the /framework dir and run "ant jar".
4. Copy cordova-1.5.0rc1.jar into the libs directory of your generated
project (I.e. cp cordova-1.5.0rc1.jar ~/src/myApp/libs/)
