Default Signing Applications

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
Am using the secure apis of the blackberry device and would like to test my application on a real device. Is there a trial version of the signing key available so that it can be used for testing purpose ?

I know that on payment of $100 i can get the key from Blackberry .. but there is delay happening in that process , would need a key in the meanwhile to test my applications.



thanks

I think it's not possible! You need to receive the key from BlackBerry to run any application on a real device with secure apis.

Enjoy,

It's not that big of a delay. I requested mine last Friday, Sept 7, and received it yesterday, Sept 10, afternoon -- Thats pretty quick if you ask me.

So if you would have requested them yesterday instead of putting in this post, you could be sending PINs, writing to persistent stores, or whatever else you need to do with the secure APIs!!

I received my key from blackberry but I can't seem to get the BlackBerry SignatureTool to work. I click "Yes" to create a new key pair file and then nothing seems to happen. any solutions to this? or does anyone know of a number/email i can contact for support?

And can someone also tell me if i need to constantly run the signature tool for each time i compile? or do i just need to get a key once?

thanks!

I had the same problem. When i asked BB support, they told me, that this is a known issue. You have to switch back from Java 1.6 to 1.5 while installing the code signing tool. Then create your keys.

After that you can upgrade to Java 1.6 again.

Yes, you do have to set the JAVA_HOME variable back to 1.5.x for it to work. Let me know if you can't get it to work and I'll post how to register them manually.

For your other question, YES...you have to use request signatures each time you compile. It's integrated in the JDE so its pretty easy to do. You have over Integer.MAX_VALUE or 2,147,483,647 times to sign, though. Some of your applications will split into multiple .cod files and if thats the case, each one gets signed -- each reducing from this count. But if you run out of signatures, then there's a problem somewhere -- you'll have a busted finger from clicking on compile that many times!!
