Default How do I automate the creation of the ALX file?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking for a way to automate the creation of the ALX, instead of going to the menu and clicking the "Generate ALX file" button. Hopefully a command line driven solution. So far I've found nothing that gets the job done.


I'm using the Black Berrry JDE 4.5.0 from Research in Motion.

Hi!

The ALX file is pretty simplistic; it doesn't contain anything really interesting except for a version number field that needs to match what the JDE codes into the COD file. And that comes out of the JDP file. While I agree that RIM should make this stuff "automatable" such that Ant or some other Make-like utility can do this without human intervention, you may have to wait for it (the signing portion was non-scriptable until JDE 4.3, I think).

You could write a simple J2SE app (or C++, if you want the practice) that reads the JDP file and creates an ALX file, and include that as a build step.

Cheers,

karl
