packaging via ripple works ok, but no launch

Hi there,

 

Just started playing around with WebWorks today (PB OS). Tried to run my first own HelloWorld app.

 

Packaging via Ripple works fine, I'm seeing the .bar file. But when trying to launch to my (physical) PlayBook, the package & launch batch stops. No error message is displayed, but when looking at the command window, it looks like it messes up the name of the path where the .bar file is located. Have a look at this screenshot:

 

 

For some reason, Ripple seems to add the word "undefined" between the path and the .bar filename in the deploy batch call. I have double checked in the Ripple package settings that there are no weird characters at the end of the output path I indicated. Also, the very same path does work in the call when the ZIP file is automatically created (7th line from the top in above screenshot).

 

Any ideas?

 

(I am aware that I could go ahead and run the install/launch process manually from the command line prompt, but that will probably become tiresome during actual app development. Being able to use Ripple would be so much more convenient...)

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Some problem to me, firstly delete old bar file from output directory and re-packing & singing. After,

You install CommandLine-tools for Android Runtime SDK and run blackberry-deploy command with installApp parameter.

blackberry-deploy -installApp -device %your_device_ip% -password %your_device_pass% %your_output_dir%\%your_app_bar_file%

Ripple didn't seem to work for me, ever. So, I use command line tools.

You can 

1. Create a zip using Ripple

2. Sign and deploy it manually.

Or, you can use the Blackberry Graphical Aid to sign and deploy. It's proved very useful.
