Heineken Detect’Fraîcheur : is my beer cold enough?

Posted in iOS, mobile, work by cordechasse on mai 9th, 2012

Heineken Detect’Fraicheur is an iPhone App that can tell if your beer is cold enough.


Each Heineken DraughtKeg (can of 5 liters of beer) has got a thermometer drawn on its back. This thermometer  reacts to the temperature of the beer inside the draughtKeg by turning from grey (hot) to blue (cold).
The application helps the beer-lovers to know if the beer is cold enough by scanning the pattern and displaying the result.

I’ve developed this full-native application for megalo&company.

If you don’t have any Heineken DraughtKeg, you can still test the app with these pictures (scan them directly on your computer screen) :

ANT comes with a few tasks that can save you a lot of time.

One of them, which is really usefull, is the FTP task :

<target name="01. Upload to ftp">
    <ftp server="ftp.mydomain" userid="login" password="password" verbose="true">
        <fileset dir="bin"/>

If you’ve got the anoying error : Could not create type ftp due to java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/net/ftp/FTPClientConfig, you need to add the commons-net-XXX.jar library in the ANT classpath.

ANT + AIR – Auto update build version

Posted in AIR, Ant Task by cordechasse on août 15th, 2011

When you develop an AIR application, the version number is really important.

Instead of updating on your own, here is an Ant task that auto-increment the build version of your application.

It will :

  • build a file where the build version is stored
  • auto-increment build version at each compilation
  • update descriptor.xml file when generating the final AIR file
  • generate an AIR file with version included in its name (ex: myApp_1_0_256.air)
