SDK Setup Issues

I went through the whole SDK setup as outlined on the "Setup the development environment" page.

 

I requested code signing keys for the smartphone and received 3 *.csi files.

I downloaded and installed the BB10 Native SDK

I downloaded and installed VMWare Fusion followed by the simulator which I'm able to run and obtain the IP as outlined in the guide.

I then launch the dev environment and go through the Blackberry Deployment Setup Wizard (again, as outlined).

It finds my simulator's IP automatically and I proceed to the Signing Registration where it requests CSJ files. I have none so I select the last option indicating I don't have them and proceed. The debug token tab is skipped and I click finish.

 

I then create an example app as the guide indicates but I can't perform step #2.

"In the Project Explorer view, double-click on the bar-descriptor.xml file, then click the Set from Debug Token button to set author information for the app."

I get a popup indicating that I have no debug tokens set.

 

I can build the app, which is step #3. But when I run it (#4), I get a run configurations popup indicating that I must select a target.

 

Anyone know where I went wrong? Not as simple a setup as I'd hoped.

 

PS. Running on a Mac.

 

Thanks for your help.

You need 2 .csj files (tablet signing keys, if you're developing for tablet, must be in this format client-PBDT-xxxxxxxxxx and client-RDK-xxxxxxxxxxxx). Look in your inbox, or order new keys, but tablet only.

For smartphone, procedure is almost the same. Help here 

Then, follow the instructions https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/native/documentation/com.qnx.doc.native_sdk.devguide/com.qnx.doc...

Re: SDK Setup Issues

I have .csi files for smartphone development. Problem is I don't see any help on how to get those working.

 

I see instructions for the .csj file, but nothing for the others. Nothing in the software either indicating a difference. Even the link you posted takes me to tablet instructions. I looked around and everything just refers to the .csj files.

Re: SDK Setup Issues

CSI files are for smartphone development, CSJ are for PlayBook and BB10 development. You will need to order and register a set of CSJ files to create and test BB10/PlayBook apps:

Let me know if you have any issues with registering the keys.

Re: SDK Setup Issues

So what you're saying is in the Signed Keys request form I have to pick the Tablet option even though I want to develop a BB10 which will end up on a Smartphone?

If so, they haven't made it very clear. Appreciate your help.

Re: SDK Setup Issues

I completely agree. I will see about hving the form updated to list both tablet and BB10.

 

Thanks for the feedback!
