Is it possible to sign our clients app?

Hi, 

 

We are very nearly finished with developing a Playbook app for one of our clients, however we are unsure as to how it should be signed. The client is not  technical and to be honest could not make it through RIM's vendor signing process. 

 

Is it possible for us to sign the app on behalf of the client and give them the BAR file to submit on their vendor account?

 

Thanks for your time

You can order the keys for your client (using their email address) and after that sign the app for them with their keys.

 

Of course you can use your own signing keys too, I'm not aware of any check whether the vendor and the key owner should match. At the end when you sign an app, you guarantee with your reputation that it's ok.

Thanks for your response. I noticed that during app submission that its possible to change the app name and vendor names, so I assume that its ok for our client to submit an app that is signed by us. Will soon find out as it should have been submitted today.

As long as you trust the code (or wrote it yourself), just sign it with your own keys.
