I've had a search through the forums, and although I've seen posts about an application ID, I've not seen anything that covers this.
I have a WebWorks app I'm trying to port to the Dev Alpha device I have. It all works fine within the Ripple Simulator within Chrome, but when I come to Package & Sign, I get the following error:
Oh Snap! Build request failed with message: [ERROR] Error: Please enter an author for the application
I'm tearing my hair out over this, because in config. xml I have this set:
<author href="http://www.gaeltd.com" rim:copyright="Copyright 2012 GAE Ltd">GAE Ltd</author>
I'm using the Blackberry 10 WebWorks SDK 188.8.131.52 and Ripple Emulator 0.9.10, in Chrome Version 23.0.1271.95 m on Windows 7 64 bit.
All of the paths and passwords etc. within Build/Settings screen within Ripple are all correct, I just can't see why it's choking on this.
Anyone any ideas? It's driving me up the wall, as this is the final round of testing :-(
Solved! Go to Solution.

I've also tried trying to sign the app from the command line, with the same results:

Please excuse the appalling path ;-)

OK, one too many martinis while finishing off this app.
For anyone else who sees this error, I made a typo in the settings screen for Ripple - the Project Root was pointing to a directory for a different mobile app I've developed for the Playbook (bad cut and paste action going on).
So naturally when I tried to build a BB10 app, the SDK choked and died, because it was told to pull the config.xml from a completely different application.
Lesson learned: double check all the paths in Ripple's Build/Settings screen.
Clearly can't be down to the martinis .......
