Possible bugs in JAD during OTA Installation

Published on September 25, 2007

OTA installation involves a JAD file and a JAR file.

JAD file is usually dynamically generated by the servlet. Some possible errors that could be encountered in the process:

  1. Empty line in JAD
  2. Empty values in the property key-values
  3. Subdomain used in the Jar-URL

The solutions are obvious. Note to (3): Full domain would work fine, but static IP would be better since DNS does not need to be resolved and it would be faster!
