Hello Adobe Experts,

Need help!

Is it possible somehow to integrate google play services to Adobe AIR app, not via Native extension?

I mean, can I integrate it as a dependent library to my AIR app? I know how to bundle it as a part of Native extension but the challenge here is if I use some other ANE's which is also bundled with google play services library then it gives the conflicts. So was thinking if there is any way to integrate google play services all together separately to my AIR app.

Looking forward for reply.

Thanks in advance.

Oh my gosh, I'm an idiot!! I'm so sorry, I didn't realize it didn't apply to Android....

You could try a different ANE, I guess, here's one commercial option: distriqt // air native extensions

I don't believe there's any other way to use native code, but if you're having symbol conflicts, there is an option to hide ANE library symbols from each other, which is supposed to eliminate the conflicts.

In Flash Builder, it's in ActionScript build Packaging / Apple iOS, native extensions tab, at the bottom of the window:

There's also a corresponding command-line option, which you should be able to find in the documentation.

Thanks for your quick reply.

What library symbols it will hide? Sorry for asking naive question, have never used this flag.

I actually don't know, I've never turned it on! I've never had conflicts

that couldn't be resolved by editing/rebuilding my ANE, since I'm using a

custom ANE as well as third-party ones. Supposedly it puts ANE symbols into

separate namespaces to stop them conflicting with each other, which sounds

in theory like exactly what you're looking for. I'd say just turn it on and

see what happens!

hmm .. so this flag is only visible under iOS tab, for Android how it should be handled? As I am getting conflicts due to multiple google play services? Isn't it should be handled under Android section?

These are the conflicts which are coming because of multiple Google play services.

Please advice how should we crack this?

I apologize, I'm more familiar with AIR and ANEs on iOS than on Android.

In iOS, if there are system frameworks that multiple ANEs need, it's possible to dynamically link against them, and then the system only loads one copy at runtime.  The system libraries are not included in the ANE, but loaded dynamically once the app is run on the device. I don't know if Google Play Services is available on the device itself though, or if you have to include it in your ANE(s) for it to be available to your app.

If something like that doesn't work, you may have to modify the ANEs to only include one copy of the Google Play Services library.  Either remove it from both conflicting ANEs and add a third ANE that only has google play services, or try to combine both ANEs into one, that has only one copy of Google Play Services.  Usually, including two copies of a library doesn't work out so well.

Good luck, I wish I could be of more help!

Hi,

That looks like a missing framework reference. You should try using the 'platformsdk' option providing a recent version of the iOS SDK which will include those frameworks. The AIR SDK only includes a subset of the iOS SDK frameworks so using some ANE's will require using the iOS SDK directly. We have a tutorial on how to include it here:

http://airnativeextensions.com/knowledgebase/tutorial/1#ios

Not sure if you've solved your first issue, with conflicting Android libraries/resources is ANE's, but just to summarise, when developing an ANE with a library that may be used in more than one ANE you should not package that library with your ANE. You can build your jar against it but when you package your ANE, leave the lib and resources out and package them as a separate ANE. You can find the Google Play Services ANE we use here: distriqt/ANE-GooglePlayServices · GitHub It just contains the resources and libraries for Google Play

Cheers

Hi michaelarchbold,

Thanks for your reply.

As you mentioned,  I specified the platform SDK to point to latest version of iOS SDK on my system and the above error is gone now. Thanks for that.

Now, when I tried to run my test app integrated with new ANE, it gives the following error:

Error occurred while packaging the application:

ld: library not found for -lSystem.B

Any idea what is causing this now?

Here is my platform.xml file:

<platform xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/air/extension/17.0">
     <sdkVersion>9.0</sdkVersion>
     <linkerOptions>
          <option>-ios_version_min 5.1.1</option>
