Can't release build on my project. jarsigner error


#1

I did as ionic official documentation says
http://ionicframework.com/docs/v1/guide/publishing.html

I made private key using keytool like below

keytool -genkey -v -keystore my-release-key.keystore -alias moontomoon -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000

my-release-key.keystore is made.

then I tried to signed it with jarsigner

jarsigner -verbose -sigalg SHA1withRSA -digestalg SHA1 -keystore my-release-key.keystore /User/jpd/express_user/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/hello.apk moontomoon

then
Enter Passphrase for keystore:
I enter password that I enter when I made keystore

but It failed with error message saying
jarsigner: unable to open jar file: /User/jpd/express_user/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/hello.apk

when I tried to input cli text without /User/jpd/express_user/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/hello.apk moontomoon
then It says Please specify jarfile name


#2

Does the file exist at that path?
How did you create it?
Any sudo usage along the way?

What is your ionic info output?


#3

I did all the command on Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_144.jdk/Contents/Home/bin
where keytool and jarsigner is exist.

ionic info output is as follows :

cli packages: (/Users/jpd/express_user/node_modules)

@ionic/cli-utils  : 1.13.1
ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.13.1

global packages:

This is old and should be updated, but should not cause this problem.

These questions referred to /User/jpd/express_user/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/hello.apk.


#5

/User/jpd/express_user/platforms/android/build/outputs/apk/hello.apk

is a project folder.

and I’m entering command on
Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_144.jdk/Contents/Home/bin

I tried prefix sudo but didn’t work neither.
I tried this thinking there must be a problem on describing folder, so entered,

jarsigner -verbose -sigalg SHA1withRSA -digestalg SHA1 -keystore my-release-key.keystore hello.apk moontomoon
but didn’t work neither


#6

That makes no sense. .apk is a file extension. This should be the file you created by running a build command.

You shouldn’t, my question was if you used sudo when creating the app or building the apk.


#7

oh my god :slight_smile:
I refered wrong file.

I did ionic cordova build --release android.
then android-release-unsigned.apk is made.
I should have referred android-release-unsigned.apk instead of hello.apk

.Thank you sujan ! you made it work out
