I have previously signed Blackberry Playbook apps with earlier signing version.
Now I applied for the signing keys and got two key files client-PBDT-XXXX.csj and client-RDK-XXXX.csj. I am confused as which csj file I should use for signing and publihsing the app on Appworld?
I guess the blogs/posts mention the older approach for siging the application from command line. Where can I find the latest siging process? If I am correct, would the following sequence sign the AIR app from command line even with current signing?
blackberry-signer -csksetup -cskpass <Pass_1>
blackberry-signer -register -csjpin <PinNumber> -cskpass Pass_1 bin\client-RDK-XXX.csj
blackberry-keytool -genkeypair -keystore XXXXX.p12 -storepass <Pass_2> -dname "cn=Sangram" -alias author
blackberry-signer -verbose -cskpass Pass_1 -keystore XXXXX.p12 -storepass <Pass_2> AppName.bar RDK
blackberry-signer -keystore XXXXX.p12 -storepass <Pass_2> AppName.bar author

So I am supposed to use client-RDK-XXX.csj file for signing the application and the signing process is the same as before with some modifications as four digit version number. And I should use client-PBDT-XXX.csj file for creating dubug token.

Is that the case?
First time I installed the keys on shared workstation but now I want to register it on my personal laptop. What be the result if now I register another key on my laptop and sign next apps using that key? Can I still sign previous app using previous registered keys?
If it holds true that we can only sign using same machine nad same signing key, what should we do in case the desktop is crashed and we have to format the system? we won't be able to upgrade the app in future?

Thanks Cocopia for the valuable information, I wasn't aware of it.
If suppose I back up the required files, can I use the same files again on another computer? Won't it create any problmes for siging new apps as well signing previous apps but on different computer?

You can "restore" your keys to multiple computers and use them simultaneously. There is no issue there.
