Running BAR file on beta testers PlayBook



I can run my Android converted app on the PlayBook simulator.

Do I need to do anything in preparing the BAR file to allow my beta tester to run the BAR file on his PlayBook, kind of like Ad-Hoc mode. He is not local so I don't have access to his PlayBook.

Re: Running BAR file on beta testers PlayBook

Hello conanjb,


In order to run the BAR file on your associate's BlackBerry PlayBook, it is required that the BAR file be signed by your RDK key (obtained from RIM at https://www.BlackBerry.com/SignedKeys) as well as your p12 developer certificate.


I would also suggest looking into the BlackBerry TabletOS Graphical Aid to assist if needed.



And just as a heads us, your associate will need to have his PlayBook in Development Mode as well when deploying the app.
