Ant error when building

Postby jrop » Sat May 15, 2010 5:19 am

Hello all,

I know I could develop android apps in eclipse, but I wanted to try my hand at doing all of the grunt work (i.e., command line) before I try that. So I created an android project with a command like:

Code: Select all
android create project --package com.android.helloandroid --activity HelloAndroid --target 2 --path <path-to-your-project>/HelloAndroid

(with necessary tweeks)

The problem is, when I run "ant debug", I get this:

Code: Select all
C:Users---DocumentsAndroid ProjectsSandbox>ant debug
Buildfile: C:Users---DocumentsAndroid ProjectsSandboxbuild.xml
    [setup] Project Target: Android 2.1
    [setup] API level: 7
    [setup] WARNING: No minSdkVersion value set. Application will install on all
Android versions.

Does anybody know the cause of this error?

Thanks in advance.

Don't allow spaces in file names

Got it. Don't allow *ANY* spaces in the file paths when dealing with ant...anyway, it works now! 8)
