Fixing launch action

There is some delay in general progress these days because I'm busy with other projects. But I still plan to create at least basic testing support and make it available soon. If everything goes well I'll be able to create a new update in a week or two. Stay tuned.

In the meantime I did some experiments and worked with nbandroid as a user. The result is couple of bugs discovered and a few ideas what to do next. And example is a fix for launch action that asked for target device even if the build failed. This is integrated now and more small fixes like this one can follow.


  1. Just wondering. Is there a way to sign app you make with nbandroid so it can be uploaded directly to android market like with eclipse?
    Cuz right now I must port my app back to eclipse just to sign it.

  2. Gašper: You dont need Eclipse for that.

    Just edit (you have to go to the 'Files' tab, its not showing in Important Files).

    I have this:

    And then from command line you type:
    ant release

    and types in your keystore passwords

  3. I have run into another launch related bug. If I try to debug a project while I have DDMS open, the debugger can never connect and the debugging session never starts (this is expected btw, it also happens with Eclipse since only one client can connect at a time).

    The problem is, if I just force close the app waiting for the debugger on the phone and close DDMS, my app will never launch again through Netbeans/NBAndroid. When I try to run or debug, it goes through the build process, and then nothing happens. I have to restart Netbeans before anything works again. AFAICT this is 100% reproducible, at least in my environment.

    Thanks for all the hard work, the plugin is great!

  4. Hi Guys,

    Trying to load old project in to new installation of netBeans and I get this:

    "Upgrading old nbandroid project <> FAILED"

    What am I doing wrong?
