[Ripple Build Failed] Resource Name is invalid

[ Edited ]

Hello Guys,

 

I'm having problems with packaging my app using Ripple. It keeps on producing the [Oh Snap! Build request failed with message: [ERROR] Invalid application archive - resource name is not valid(img/about-tabbar@2x.png)] error.

 

I'm guessing a recurrence of an old bug as tneil told so in this post so I used the latest SDK (BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 2.2.0.15) but the error still persists.

 

Please note that I've used Ripple a lot of times before with the "-" on filenames removed on my mind which is probably the reason why I haven't encountered this earlier but it's just that I'm importing pre-made images with strict naming conventions (having a "-") so I can't go and rename them.

 

Here's a screenshot of ripple.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: [Ripple Build Failed] Resource Name is invalid

Unfortunately I think you'll have to find a way to rename it, unless there's a way to override this constraint. The "@" is also probably causing a problem. tneil or jeff from RIM probably have a definitive answer.

Re: [Ripple Build Failed] Resource Name is invalid

Thanks for the reply shnuffy but I really couldn't change the file names from my images. Hopefully tneil or jeff could shed light on the issue.

Re: [Ripple Build Failed] Resource Name is invalid

There are special characters that are not supported in names of embedded resources for an application running on the BlackBerry Smartphone platform.

 

I believe @ is one of those unsupported characters

Re: [Ripple Build Failed] Resource Name is invalid

Thanks tneil. Okay I give up, renaming the convention it is then . Hopefully the limitations on the supported characters be fixed on the next SDK release. As for the mean time, could you provide the list of invalid characters for file names embedded within the app?

 

Again, thanks for the support. Smiley Happy
