I am creating a build and deploy process for my android application for my company.
I have completed the build process. I used ant plugin to build my application. I used two target "clean" and "debug". I am not sure if these target build the apk file for my application correctly or not.
Another thing I wanted to ask you was that now that the build process is complete I want to have something in the post build process which takes a file and uses all the email addresses and send an update notification to all the email addresses in that file.
Is this possible ? if so can you please guide me how to do this ? I see jabber and some other plugins to send notifications. I do not know how to actually set them up with my project, what sorts of targets I need to use.
The application is running on android tablets. when ever someone logs in from the application they either sign in or sign up a new account. all the devices are registered. what I want to do basically is that send an update notification to all these devices or users that there is an update available for this application. Or even better could I update the application automatically on all these devices.
Can someone please guide me on how to complete this task ? If someone knows a better tool that I can easily integrate with jenkins build process to complete the task, I will be glad to know about it .
