How to change application name from CommCare?

Hi,

We would like to change the mobile application name from CommCare to our
application name. Is this possible and if yes, could you please let us know
how to configure it ?

Sathish,

If you are compiling a custom build with your own signing certificate this
is possible, yes. You can change the app.name property in the
build.properties file before compiling to change what the midlet name is.

Hi Clayton,

We are using the build from http://build.dimagi.com:250/. Is the source
available somewhere for us to make change and compile?

Sathish,

The source is freely available from

http://bitbucket.org/commcare/javarosa
http://bitbucket.org/commcare/commcare

In order to put applications on a phone after compilation you’ll need a
signing certificate if you want to be able to set Application Permissions
(access file system without prompting the user, etc), though. We provide
that service for our compiled version of CommCare, but can’t sign custom
compiled versions since we can’t be liable for the code in them.

You can obtain a code signing certificate from anyone that offers the
appropriate Certificate Authority on the phones you’re working with. Our
certificate is from Thawte.

Hi Clayton,

We would like to go ahead with your build for this release. To use your
service what is the procedure that we need to follow.

Sathish,

You can obtain the latest builds of CommCare from our build server at

http://build.dimagi.com:250

The builds are named and listed as “CommCare 1.0”, “CommCare 1.1”, etc.
“CommCare Trunk” is the newest version (2.0) which is pending release soon.

You can download the Jad/Jar file for your platform under the "Artifacts"
for the specific builds.

But when we build the application in Release Manager, commcare-hq expects
the keystore to be present in order to sign the application jar file. Is it
something you could provide?

Sathish,

Ah, you’re correct. Sorry, I had forgotten that part of the process.
Unfortunately we cannot provide a signing certificate, since they are
issued per-organization. If you want to sign applications you will need to
obtain a code signing certificate. If desired, you could create a “Remote
Application” on the cloud www.commcarehq.org that would submit to your
server instead of www.commcarehq.org, which is the only way to create an
app signed by our certificate.

You can also simply skip the signing process, but that will result in the
app not being able to have certain permissions set to “Always allowed”, and
thus will display a prompt to the user each time the permission is
requested.

Remote application option is a really good option for us. But we want to
know how update version of mobile app works with remote app or normal app
for that matter. We want to know how to get the latest release of the app
installed on mobile phones.

Everytime you make a build it grabs the latest version of the application
from the repository.

Hi Cory,

Sorry, I am not very clear about it. There will be two repositories now if
I use remote app(our actual server and commcare-hq cloud). Where exactly it
will look for new version and where will the jar downloaded from.

We played a little and it seems to us that it first looks for version
update in cloud app and then downloads from our app(when we try to launch
the downloaded app it says 'application from untrusted supplier…'
something like that!). Is this the correct observation?

Hey guys,

Sorry, I introduced some confusion here

The recommendation I was offering was that you build the application
purely on the HQ cloud as a remote application which submits to your
actual server instead of CommCare HQ’s Cloud. You won’t be able to execute
any builds (with appropriate permissions) from your local server until they
are signed by a proper signing certificate, so this would be a way for you
to use your server to host data, but use the CommCareHQ Cloud server to
create the jar and jad files.
