i couldn't find anything about this issue here:
what is the correct structure of the "build" folder inside a Titanium mobile application?
there's "src" but it seems to be auto-generated, and so are the XML files, and the "bin" folder.
can you please elaborate on what happens there when i launch my app in an Emulator? for example, Android 1.6?
There are many steps in the process so I'm not sure what level of information you're after.
srcfolder contains classes that extend the core Titanium classes to give your Titanium Android application a unique package and name. That name is taken from the appid and title as entered during creation. The
binfolder is a temporary workplace where the intermediary and final .apk are generated. The XML files are configuration and source files required by an Android application.
When you launch your app in the emulator a
buildis done that generates/updates the AppInfo.java file from the contents of your tiapp.xml, copies the Resources, compiles your code with Titanium code, packages up the resources and class files, signs it with a key, installs or re-installs it on the emulator and then launches it.
can you also please explain to me, if it's not too hard, what is the "assets" and "sim" folders directly under build/[platform] , as well as how can i use the "res" folder and its xml config file to my advantage, if i'm planning different user interfaces for different clients, for example? i couldn't find anything useful about the res folder in http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=res+folder+site:http://appcelerator.com
