Automatically Exporting a Sabre Scribe Project as a Bundle

The Red App Bundle wizard creates a Red App bundle executable JAR file automatically. Additionally, this wizard does the following:

  • Creates the and bundle.crt files

  • Signs all JARs in your bundle with your digital certificate

  • Generates the bundle ZIP file as a ZIP archive

  • Performs basic validation of a Red App to catch common errors before you submit your Red App bundle to Sabre.For more information, see the Red App Bundle Wizard description.

  • When you run this wizard, the wizard displays the Scribe Scripts Security page, only if you select a plug-in project that contributes to , with Sabre Scribe scripts in your specified directories.

  • Only the selected scripts are secured. The remaining scripts are not touched.

  • Your scripts are fully secured against unauthorized use outside your Red App.

  • The wizard does not modify the original files. The Sabre Scribe scripts in your project remain unsecured.

  • To secure your scripts correctly, your plug-in must contain redapp.xml with your correct Red App ID.

To use Red App wizards, you must install the Red App development tools. For installation procedures, see How Do I Start?.

In case of any issues with exporting your bundle it’s recommended for you to check if Eclipse is using JDK, not JRE.

Before you begin:

  1. From the Eclipse workbench menu bar, choose File > Export.

  2. In the Export dialog, expand Red App Development, then choose Red App Bundle. Finally, click Next.
