Phonegap Signing Keys

I am just getting started in mobile development and am setting up my environment using Dreamweaver 6 and Phonegap. Phonegap allows the ability to build for Blackberry. To do that, I need a Blackberry signing key. I downloaded Webworks and installed it. I also requested and received my signing keys. This is where I am stuck. The key installation instructions talk about a CSI file. I never received that. I received two files...both are csj files. Can someone please point me in the right direction to get my keys installed so I can proceed with getting my phonegap build set up?

 

Thanks,

 

Clay

Re: Phonegap Signing Keys

CSI files are used for BlackBerry OS 7.x and lower development.  CSJ files are used for BlackBerry PlayBook OS and BlackBerry 10 development.  You can request both using the same order form.  It just depends which OS(es) you choose when ordering.

Re: Phonegap Signing Keys

Thanks for the info. The installation instructions I found were for CSI files. Is the a KB doc for CSJ files?

Re: Phonegap Signing Keys

Thanks for the assist thus far. I went to run the bash command from terminal and it responded with the following error...

Thoughts?

Re: Phonegap Signing Keys

Did you install the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for BlackBerry 10 or Tablet OS?

Re: Phonegap Signing Keys

What OS are you running?  Did you run the command from your bin directory?

Re: Phonegap Signing Keys

Does blackberry-signer have executable permissions?
