Do you need to update Ranorex.jar for Android automation

Post by tvu » Fri Aug 19, 2016 6:37 pm

We are getting the following error when we try to use the Instrumentation Wizard to instrument and deploy our Android app.

error: Error retrieving parent for item: No resource found that matches the given name

It seems to be the same issue found here:
http://www.ranorex.com/forum/cannot-ins ... t5383.html

Looks like we have to instrument our Android app by code. We have to link the Ranorex.jar file for the Android project according to this page:
http://www.ranorex.com/support/user-gui ... -code.html

Do we have to update the Ranorex.jar file in the Android project every time there is a new Ranorex release?

Hello tvu,

We highly recommend using the latest service app and RxAutomation library., not every Ranorex release contains a new service app, though.

Further information can be found here: Versioning

Sincerely,
Robert

Hi Robert,

The Ranorex.jar file is not available from the mobile download page. We had to get it from the Ranorex install directory. That's why I asked if we need to continually update this file.

Is there a maven repository for this file so our builder can automatically pull the latest version?

Thanks.

Hello tvu,

Unfortunately, there is no way to automatically retrieve this file from a repository, but you should definitely about the Ranorex.jar file for every Ranorex release.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely,
Robert
