cordova-android release

Cordova Android ===

Cordova Android is an Android application library that allows for Cordova-based projects to be built for the Android Platform. Cordova based applications are, at the core, applications written with web technology: HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Apache Cordova is a project of The Apache Software Foundation (ASF).

The Cordova developer tooling is split between general tooling and project level tooling.

General Commands

./bin/create [path package activity] ... creates the ./example app or a cordova android project
./bin/check_reqs ....................... checks that your environment is set up for cordova-android development
./bin/update [path] .................... updates an existing cordova-android project to the version of the framework

Project Commands

These commands live in a generated Cordova Android project. Any interactions with the emulator require you to have an AVD defined.

./cordova/clean ........................ cleans the project
./cordova/build ........................ calls `clean` then compiles the project
./cordova/log   ........................ streams device or emulator logs to STDOUT
./cordova/run   ........................ calls `build` then deploys to a connected Android device. If no Android device is detected, will launch an emulator and deploy to it.
./cordova/version ...................... returns the cordova-android version of the current project
  1. File > New > Project...
  2. Android > Android Project
  3. Create project from existing source (point to the generated app found in tmp/android)
  4. Right click on libs/cordova.jar and add to build path
  5. Right click on the project root: Run as > Run Configurations
  6. Click on the Target tab and select Manual (this way you can choose the emulator or device to build to)

Note: The Developer Tools handle this. This is only to be done if the tooling fails, or if you are developing directly against the framework.

To create your cordova.jar file, run in the framework directory:

android update project -p . -t android-19
ant jar

Please see details under test/README.md.
