Well, I am almost on the BlackBerry world!! All thanks to you guys.
I do have one issue however that I cannot seem to get right.
I have submitted my app to the app world on Mondayand there were a couple of issues which I have sorted out mostly, except for one.
The "File Release Denied" Message BlackBerry sent me said this :
After installing your application, we notice the application icon is appearing as a default icon. If you are using our Eclipse plug-in, please check your BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml file and ensure you are specifying your custom application icon correctly.
I have done this! Maybe I did it wrong...
This is what my BlackBerry_App_Descriptor.xml file looks like :
<!-- This file has been generated by the BlackBerry Plugin for Eclipse v3.7.101. --> <Properties ModelVersion="1.1.2"> <General Title="NCC Vereeniging" Version="1.0.0" Vendor="NCC Vereeniging" Description=""/> <Application Type="BlackBerry Application" MainMIDletName="" MainArgs="" HomeScreenPosition="0" StartupTier="7" IsSystemModule="false" IsAutostartup="false"/> <Resources hasTitleResource="false" TitleResourceBundleName="" TitleResourceBundleRelativePath="" TitleResourceBundleClassName="" TitleResourceBundleKey="" DescriptionId=""> <Icons> <Icon CanonicalFileName="res/NCC_small.gif" IsFocus="false"/> <Icon CanonicalFileName="res/NCC_small.gif" IsFocus="true"/> </Icons> </Resources> <KeywordResources KeywordResourceBundleName="" KeywordResourceBundleRelativePath="" KeywordResourceBundleClassName="" KeywordResourceBundleKey=""/> <Compile OutputCompilerMessages="false" ConvertImages="false" CreateWarningForNoExportedRoutine="true" CompressResources="false" AliasList=""> <PreprocessorDefines/> </Compile> <Packaging PreBuildStep="" PostBuildStep="" CleanStep="" OutputFileName="NCC_Vereeniging" OutputFolder="deliverables" GenerateALXFile="true"> <AlxFiles/> </Packaging> <HiddenProperties> <ClassProtection/> <PackageProtection/> </HiddenProperties> <AlternateEntryPoints/> </Properties>
I have an image named NCC_Small.gif - which is supposedly the app icon. How can I make sure that the BlackBerry app knows to always use this icon? There is an icon.png file inside res/img but that is the default icon. I have even deleted this once and resubmitted but to no avail.
This was the third time they denied me
Can anyone help!
Solved! Go to Solution.

(more info would be nice, like platform, programming language etc )
have you ever tried to install your app on an actual device? Furthermore, if *.gif doesn't work, you should convert your image to png and try again

sounds like the image can not be found while packaging, that's why the default icon is used
try to put your icon in a different folder, and make sure that after packaging
1) the path in your appdescriptor is correct
2) there is no default icon in your package
also, before you submit, you should always recheck the contents of your package

can you confirm that no default icon is in your cod-file?

I don't remember exactly how, but I think there was a file you could open with Notepad or sth, with all the meta-data like your app name, vendor name, etc. In there, there should also be a reference to your app icon (C:\whatever\...icon.png)
Make sure that it references YOUR icon, not the default icon which is inside the sdk
