Apps Hi: Issues with building with ProGuard

    This is Kuntal. I'm new in this forum. Just started working on Android, and recently trying to optimize & Obfuscate my code with ProGuard. But running into some issues now. Couldn't find any solution on the web for this yet.

    When I try to build my app using Ant, I get the following error:

    C:\DEV\StockViewer\build.xml:350: aaptexec doesn't support the "apkbasename" attribute

    I used to get the error of "basename" attribute not found, but then I updated Ant to 1.8.2 & I used the build.xml file from the Android SDK itself.

    Any help is greatly aprpeciated. I'm attaching the build.xml file below:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <project name="StockViewer" default="help">

    <!-- The local.properties file is created and updated by the 'android' tool.
    It contains the path to the SDK. It should *NOT* be checked in in Version
    Control Systems. -->
    <property file="local.properties" />

    <!-- The build.properties file can be created by you and is never touched
    by the 'android' tool. This is the place to change some of the default property values
    used by the Ant rules.
    Here are some properties you may want to change/update:

    the name of your application package as defined in the manifest. Used by the
    'uninstall' rule.
    the name of the source directory. Default is 'src'.
    the name of the output directory. Default is 'bin'.

    Properties related to the SDK location or the project target should be updated
    using the 'android' tool with the 'update' action.

    This file is an integral part of the build system for your application and
    should be checked in in Version Control Systems.

    <!-- Execute the Android Setup task that will setup some properties specific to the target,

    The rules file is imported from

    To customize some build steps for your project:
    - copy the content of the main node <project> from android_rules.xml
    - paste it in this build.xml below the <setup /> task.
    - disable the import by changing the setup task below to <setup import="false" />

    This will ensure that the properties are setup correctly but that your customized
    build steps are used.
