Re: [Linphone-developers] I tried to generate an apk with different pack

Subject: Re: [Linphone-developers] I tried to generate an apk with different package name, as seen in README, but without effect. How to do?

Hi Sylvain.
Thank you for your attention.
However, I'm still confused.

The command list Linphone-debug.apk  still shows me:

org/linphone/mediastream/MediastreamerActivity.wnin in the list.

So, I still have a folder structure org.linphone inside my apk. Is it fine?

I also have read the appt man and it explains that (according to our custom_rules.xml file) :

a) the manifest is rewritten. But I just see a new manifest in the the new package (on ADT), after running make, not a rewritten one. So, should I  manually override the old manifest with the new one?

b)  is generated into a different package. I is ok. I saw it. But, how to be sure that the new was used when the apk was built?

Is there any way to certify that my apk has the correct package, as suggested by the custom_rules.xml file?

Thank you again.

Hi Rodrigo,

Changing the package name in the custom_rules file has for effect to
call aapt with the --rename-manifest-package. Here's the documentation
from aapt:
       Rewrite the manifest so that its package name is the package name
       given here.  Relative class names (for example .Foo) will be
       changed to absolute names with the old package so that the code
       does not need to change.

Basically it doesn't change anything in the code, it only change the
package name used to identify the application (and so it changes the
install path on the device), and it's also used when the app log
messages in logcat.

I have followed the README file, changing the custom_rules.xml
accordingly (to generate a new apk with different package name), and
run the make clean + make.
The apk was generated. So I investigated it inside and I didn't see my
new package name in any file there. So, the changed custom_rules .xml
file did not take effect over the apk.

However, in folder gen, seen  via ADT, I see a new package and it has
exactly the new wanted name. So, I suspect that I still have to do
something with it. But, what?

Any hint will be very helpful!

Thanks a lot.
