Android app icons and splash screens in JET hybrid apps

Graeme Mawson
Senior Principal Product Manager

If you are using Oracle JET to develop hybrid mobile apps and recently updated to Cordova CLI v6.4.0, you may have noticed that your custom app icons and splash screens are not being included in your app when deployed to Android devices.

This is a known issue with Cordova Android v6.0.0 that has been addressed in the recent v6.1.0 release.  To upgrade to this version, follow these steps: 

  1. Change directory to the 'hybrid' folder within your app source code:
    cd hybrid
  2. Save your plugins:
    cordova plugin save
  3. Upgrade Cordova Android:
    cordova platform update android@latest
Rebuild and redeploy your app to an Android device using the JET grunt tasks or your own build scripts and you should see your custom app icon and splash screen as expected.
