Is it possible to get a copy of the .apk file for JasperSoft Mobile for Android? I would like to experiment and see if it is compatible on the BlackBerry PlayBook. Many Android applications will work on the PlayBook (there are BlackBerry tools for repackaging the .apk file) but they can not be obtained through Google Play.
I will be happy to report my findings.
Hi Veronica - Thanks for your reply. I hadn't looked deeply enough to find that link.
Unfortunately, the application does not pass BlackBerry's compatibility test for the PlayBook:
Your application uses a feature which is incompatible with the current version of the BlackBerry® Runtime for Android™ Apps.
I will be delighted to try again, if you choose to modify the app to be more compatible with BlackBerry's Android app player.
JasperMobile for Android wasn't using the maps package. But it turns out that, because we were using RoboGuice, which has a MapActivity, the BlackBerry packager was picking that up, even though we weren't using it.
As a workaround, you could unpack the roboguice jar, delete the MapActivity class, then repackage it. Thenthe BlackBerry packager should be happy! (i hope)
P.S. If so, I can try to repackage this APK for you next week.
Hi - thanks for that really helpful reply!
I understand conceptually what needs to be done, but I think it would take me a long time to do this with my very basic Java skills. I imagine that you could do this very easily - so I appreciate your offer, when you can get to it.
When the new .apk passes the compatibility check, I can build the .bar file needed by the PlayBook and will report back on results.
Sorry for the delay, just i've been a little busy lately.
We plan to release version 1.1 this week. We integrated ProGuard to shrink unused classes like RoboMapActivity, etc., so new version should be compatible with BlackBerry packager out of the box.
Just try to repackage new APK after its release.
in the android source code package these packages are missing..........please send that packages ASAP.......
