Can't export signed app with Eclipse ADT wizard -- Error

Postby calebrogers » Wed Nov 18, 2009 4:10 am

Hi,

I'm trying to export a signed release of my app so I can test it on my device. I get an error. Specifically, here is the error I get:

keytool error: java.io.IOException: Incorrect AVA format


I searched the board for this error, but didn't find anything. I am using Eclipse 3.5 with the ADT plugin. Here's what I do to get the error:

1) Right click on project in project explorer
2) Click Android Tools > Export Signed Application Package...
3) Go through the wizard screens, creating keystore password and such
4) Hit Finish, and get the error above.

The error doesn't tell me anything useful, so I don't even know what I did wrong. Has anyone else come across this issue? Anyone know how to fix it?

Thanks,

Caleb

Has anyone got any idea what's going on here? This is the first issue I've come across when developing with Eclipse, so I'm not sure what to do here. I tried several times, all with the same result.

Thanks!

UPDATE! After searching for the "incorrect ava format" error, and finding little useful information, I stumbled upon the answer. I had a comma in my organization name (", Inc."). That was killing it. It would have been nice if the error said something about an illegal character in XX field or something. Oh well.

So I now have a signed application I can put on my device for testing.

Remember: No comma in organization name when using Eclipse export wizard.
