Confusing denial of app???

I just received the denial for my app written using WebWorks/Eclipse for the playbook.  Please see the text below.

 

Dear App World Vendor,

We are sorry but your request for 'No Decompression Dive Planner' to be a product in the BlackBerry App World has been denied for the following reasons :
Items that need attention:

- Please upload a signed copy of your application, appears that it is not signed.
- no icon after installing application, please make sure to specify an icon no larger than 86x86 in the blackberry-tablet.xml file.

Signing information:

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/23959/Signing_your_application_1422721_11.jsp 

Commands
RDK:
blackberry-signer -verbose -cskpass  -keystore  -storepass   RDK

Author:
blackberry-signer -keystore  -storepass   author

You should also have the following files as a general rule as an end result when signing your application:
-	RDK.SF
-	RDK.EC
-	MANIFEST.MF
-	AURTHOR.SF
-	AUTHOR.EC

These should all be contained within your .BAR file

Regards;

The BlackBerry App World™ Team

 

I am very confused because:

 

  1.  I do not have a blackberry-tablet.xml file.  Instead I have a config.xml file.  I assume they are thinking I developed an air application?
  2. They state I need the files starting with sdk.sf and ending with author.ec in my .bar file.  Are those supposed to be put in there manually?  If so, what is the format and what are they for?   Please note that I create a new BlackBerry Webworks application using the plugin in eclipse and none of those files are included.
  3. I followed the directions to a "T" for signing my application and I even received a success from my command line.  However, they state my application was not signed.  How can I verify that it has been signed properly.

Lastly, I did submit this application prior to the free PlayBook deadline.  Does this denial exclude me from gettting the playbook.

 

Please help.

2) Those files will be added automatically to the .bar file once you properly sign your app

 

3) .bar file is actually an archive, you can open it with WinRar so you can check which files are inside

 

As for the PlayBook offer - you should receive one, my app was denied the same way (although it is an air app), and after signing the app and submitting once again, I got the free-playbook-mail

Awesome.  Any clue on:

 

  1. I do not have a blackberry-tablet.xml file.  Instead I have a config.xml file.  I assume they are thinking I developed an air application?

Is the config.xml file the WebWorks equivalent to AIR / blackberry-tablet.xml?
