Generate an application with non-english alphabetic characters

Hi,

 

I have tried to generate an application with non-english alphabetic characters like french and spanish but builds fail to be created. We are getting I/O Error: Invalide UTF-8 encoding.

 

Is it possible to do so?

 

Regards,

Krmlkr.

Hello Krmlkr,


This error message is likely the result of the rapc command displaying a compilation error when the BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml file contains characters that fall outside of the UTF-8 character set.This issue typically occurs for developers who wish to display a localized name under the application icon on the home screen.


Ensure that all content saved within the BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml file falls under the UTF-8 character set.

 

Localizing the name of application can be accomplished via the Locale Resources section of the BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml file and standard localization techniques. Please feel free to reference the LocalizationDemo sample application as well.
