Working behind a proxy – solution for [java] Could not generate timestamp: Connection timed out: connect

If you are getting the following error when packaging up AIR app:

[java] Could not generate timestamp: Connection timed out: connect

means ADL cannot connect to Adobe to get the timestamp. Assuming you have internet connection it is worth checking if you don’t have to use a proxy to do so.

If you are using proxy, you need to configure JRE to use it as well and you do it in

[Adobe Flash Builder 4 folder]\jre\lib\net.properties

Simply set: java.net.useSystemProxies=true if you want to use the system proxy, or specify it manually. More instructions in the properties file.

    Magic, thanks. Bear in mind you may have more than one JRE installed (I had three) and you need to get the right one (or just do them all).
