preparing to upload first app

Hello,

 

I'm ready to upload my first palybook app, just want to make sure of the steps for preparing it for upload, I believe I have to:

 

- compile as Device-Release

- set Author and AuthorID on bar-descriptor.xml (does I have to codesign somewhere else ??)

- upload the .bar file

 

hope someone can confirm this or if I'm missing something,

thanks!

Re: preparing to upload first app

I'd recommend installing and testing the signed file in your device before uploading to App World. There may be things that work in debug mode, but not once signed, usually due to missing permissions. The SDK contains command-line tools for doing this.

You can upload signed copy using NDK too, can't you? There is no need to switch to command line tool.

[ Edited ]

I have already read the adm guide 3.1 and the FAQ, and I don't see a place how the app is signed, particulary this topic on the forum makes me think I'm missing a codesign step I have not found how it's done.. the xml file for my app contains Author and AuthorID variables that I guess are related to debug tokens stuff for dev testing, but I believe I'm missing the codesign step for the actual app submission, where/how you do that ??.

Re: preparing to upload first app

Just make sure that the "Enable digital signing" option is selected in the "Packaging Settings" page of the "Export Release Build" wizard when you run the export.
