Hi all,

On OS , there is two concepts :
package and application.

a package is an "application containers"

So we can have 1 packages that contains more than one application
On Tizen, to identify application and package we have respectively

pkgid and appid

the appid is 'built' as follow
appid = <pkgid>.<name of the app>

but in appid the symbol characters are not allowed. (included dash it is
root cause of

https://crosswalk-project.org/jira/browse/XWALK-2718 )

pkgcmd is a command that provides informations about packages not directly
the applications

*pkgcmd -l *

is a correct command if you want to get *pkgid*

*ail_list <no argument is needed> *
 is a correct command if you want *app_id* of the applications

So please use the correct command if you want app_id or pkg_id
