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?
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!!
