MAF Examples Wizard may fail when OEPE is installed into a directory with spaces. To workaround this issue, install OEPE into a directory path without spaces. (bug id - 19072080)
MAF Runtime Configuration cannot detect Android Emulator due to "daemon not running". Even if the Android emulator is running, it is possible that the Android SDK daemon may not have started properly. The IDE will show the following error message "Either the target device is not set of the selected device is invalid". To fix this issue, run the "adb devices" utility from the Android SDK platform tools directory. If the daemon is not started, the "adb devices" utility will restart it. (bug id - 19050969)
When using the Web Service Data Control Wizard, choosing to copy a remote Web Service can result in the local wsdl copy to have port operation declarations in the wrong order. The result will be a 500 error when trying to execute the Data Control. Compare the local wsdl copy to the remote wsdl to confirm that the port operations are in the correct order. (bug id - 19049333)
Applying fix for SDK Tools 23 problems
If you have upgraded to OEPE 184.108.40.206.1 in order to fix problems (zipalign is missing error) with your OEPE MAF build on Android SDK Tools 23, make sure that you update your deploy targets. OEPE deploy targets do not automatically update with 220.127.116.11.1.
To update you have to one of two options:
Android SDK API 4.4x (API 20)
The supported versions of the Android runtime API for MAF 2.0 are API versions 4.0.3 (API 15) through 4.4.2 (API 19).
OEPE MAF 18.104.22.168.1 is not compatible with any version of the Android API later than 4.2.2 (API 19). The tooling will stop the user from using these later versions and MAF applications may even successfully deploy based on this version, however, they may fail at runtime.
If you have API 20 installed in the SDK you have registered with OEPE, be aware that OEPE will automatically pick this version (even though it is not supported) when you created new deployment targets. This is because the current default is to select the latest version. To workaround, simply remove the API 20 targets and create new API 19 (or earlier) targets.
Android SDK Tools 23
Version 23 of the SDK tools will work with OEPE 22.214.171.124.1, however the "Android SDK Build Tools" component must be upgraded to at least 19.1, otherwise there will be a failure an MAF application build time. This is due to version enforcement in the Android SDK itself (getbuildtools task) and cannot be otherwise worked around.
Google Cloud Messaging and Android SDK Tools 23
In some upgrade scenarios (principally after upgrading from Android SDK Tools 22.x to 23), the option to install the "Google Cloud Messaging for Android Library" disappears from SDK Manager. This component must be installed in your SDK for correct build and operation of MAF applications.
If this happens try the following:
Problem: Application deployment fails with the following error: The SDK Build Tools revision (19.0.3) is too low for project 'oepe-android-build'. Minimum required is 19.1.0
Solution: Open SDK Manager and upgrade your SDK Build Tools component to at least 19.1.0.
Problem: Deployment succeeds on my Android device or emulator, but the application hangs on the starting splash screen.
Solution: Check if the version of the platform API you used is newer than Android 4.2.2 (Platform 19). This will appear in the dialog when you right-click on the assembly project and select Properties->Mobile Application Framework under "Platform Version". If the value is greater than 19, then Remove the target and click Add.. to create one using a supported version. If a supported version does not appear, open SDK Manager and install one first.
Note: This problem may be caused by other issues. If this doesn't solve your problem, capture the logcat output for your application and post the information to MAF support forums for help.
Problem: Application deployment fails with the following error: .../sdk/extras/google/gcm/gcm-client/dist does not exist
Solution: Install the Google Cloud Message component from SDK Manager.
For more information on platform support, including hardware and software requirements, see the Supported Platforms web site.
