Packaging AIR application inside IntelliJ vs ant build configurations

Hi all,

I am using the IntelliJIDEA 12 to develop an Adobe AIR iOS app.
I find that using the Build -> Package AIR Application for ad hoc distribution, the ipa that I get works on my iPod
However, when I use my ant build, the ipa gets stuck on the splash screen.

I am using Flex SDK 4.6 with Adobe Air 3.5 and I'm testing on iOS 6.

Any ideas on how or where to dig deeper on this issue?
Don't know where to start :(

Thanks!

Try the following hint: make some error in app descriptor template (I assume you are not using the generated one), e.g. set root namespace to some incorrect and try to create package in IntelliJ IDEA. You'll get an error and a link to see ADT command line. Compare this command line with what you have in ant.

Hi Alexander,

I had a look and apart from rearranging some of the values in my build.xml, there wasn't that much difference. I retried but still with no success.
Some other info that might be useful perhaps: when I build via my ant build script for the ipa-debug-interpreter, it does NOT get stuck at the splash screen.

Any ideas?

Well, the question looks like "what's wrong with my ant script" and seems to be not related to IntelliJ IDEA. May be I'll be able to sort it out if I have a sample project including ant script.

Hi Alexander.

Yes you are correct. I guess I was trying to figure out if there was something happening in IntelliJ that I was missing in my ant configuration.
Anyway, I don't see why I can't use IntelliJ features to package my AIR application :)

Thanks!
