I'm trying to create a Cocoa framework by using a cross-project reference in Xcode.

I have 2 projects: one for the framework; one for the application that will use the framework.

This framework is not intended to be stored within the system; it is an embedded framework that lives within the application bundle.

I have successfully made the cross-project reference, marked the framework as being a dependency of my target, added a Copy Files build phase that puts the framework in Contents/Frameworks/ and added the framework to the linker phase (I checked the little "Target" checkbox; I've also done it manually by dragging the framework into the linker phase).

My framework's install directory is correctly set to @executable_path/../Frameworks.

However, when I try to build my app it:

a) Correctly builds the framework first b) Correctly copies the framework c) Errors because it cannot find the master header file in my framework

I have verified that the header is there. I can see it in the app product that is partially built.

ls build/Debug/CioccolataTest.webapp/Contents/Frameworks/Cioccolata.framework/Headers/Cioccolata.h build/Debug/CioccolataTest.webapp/Contents/Frameworks/Cioccolata.framework/Headers/Cioccolata.h

I have been able to successfully build the app by copying my framework into /Library/Frameworks (I can then delete it again after the successful build), but this is a workaround, I'm looking to find it out why Xcode doesn't find the framework's master header file without it being copied to a system directory. Is copying it to the app bundle during the build not sufficient?

Here's the full build transcript if it's any help (it's just a Hello World app right now, so not much going on here):
