To update the Heyzap SDK, simply download our latest SDK, extract the .zip file, and replace libs/HeyzapAds.ane with the newer version. Do the same for all other SDKs included in the project by downloading the latest supported versions of each (downloads can be found here.

How to work with this project

Use this project if you want to test the Heyzap SDK on Adobe AIR. Some ad network SDK ANEs are separate based on platform, and some of them work cross-platform.

The libs/ dir contains ANEs you can use on iOS or Android. The ios-libs/ dir contains ANEs you should use only on iOS. The android-libs/ dir contains ANEs you should use only on Android.

Setup the project in your IDE, add the appropriate libraries, connect your device, and build!

Setting up the project

  1. Import the project to your IDE as a Flex project.
    • Select Adobe Air+Flex SDK. This test application has been tested with Flex 4.6 and Adobe Air 25.
  2. Set the application descriptor to flex-example-app-ios.xml for iOS or flex-example-app-android.xml for Android (located in the src/ folder).
  3. Set "FlexExampleApp" as the main .mxml file for the project.
  4. Open FlexExampleApp.mxml and change <APP_ID> in the call to HeyzapAds.getInstance().start to your own publisher ID, which can be found on the Heyzap docs.
  5. Set the application ID in the application descriptors, flex-example-app-android.xml and flex-example-app-ios.xml to your own app's bundle identifier by replacing YOUR_PACKAGE_ID with it.
  6. Add libraries to the project. Common ANEs are located under the libs/ folder. For iOS also add the ANEs from the ios-libs/ folder, and for Android add all ANEs from the android-libs/ folder.
  7. Add all the splash screen files named src/Default*.png to the iOS build settings in your IDE (optional).
  8. Setup platform specific settings (certificates, keys, etc.) in your IDE as necessary.
  9. Compile and run!

Known problems

  • Compilation failed while executing : ld64. Read here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1686169

    • Summary: replace the ld64 linker executable at {AIR_SDK}/lib/aot/bin/ld64/ by copying /usr/bin/ld to that directory and renaming it ld64
  • Conflicts with libraries. Only use one ANE that includes Google Play Services, for instance. We provide one, but some plugins embed GPS into their ANE in an un-removable fashion. Other Java libraries can confict too, like android-support-v4.jar, which is also included in our GooglePlayServices.ane.

  • Error java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: GC overhead limit exceeded. This error appears while packing Android library. Increase the memory allocated for Java and the Adobe Air/Flex framework. Open jvm.config at $AIR_BASE_DIR/bin and set java.args with the line java.args=-Xmx1024m -Xms512m -Dsun.io.useCanonCaches=false instead of what is there. (-Xmx sets the max ram allocated for the Java runtime, and -Xms is the minimum.)
