what do you mean by categories? in the vendor portal or the blackberry-tablet.xml file?

Elena has given that information in other posts. From the sounds of it, if your app doesn't belong in core.games or core.media, you should leave the category out of your blackberry-tablet.xml file, and the app will show up in All (as all apps do).

ok - i can remove this from the xml file.
what about on the vendor portal?
just as a side note: I tried to search catagories even befor posting this but nothing was taged for that search term.
This is also getting very confusing, because the specs keep changing

in the vendor portal, the first page where it asks for your product name, it will ask for your category as well. you can choose whatever category you want. the category you choose there only affects the way your app shows up on App World and not the actual device. For the device, only the blackberry-tablet.xml matters. the choices you make in either places are exclusive to each other. so you can do core.all in the blackberry-tablet.xml and in the portal, you can choose something like Utitlity and then calculator and you will be fine. good luck!

Thanks for the reply. It's good to know that the 2 are seperate.
but do I use: <category>core.all</category>
or do I remove this line totally from the XML file? .... according to peter778 eariler post?

you can leave it out or include it, wont make a difference from wat i read. i like to add it though anyway to my blackberry-tablet.xml file. keeps a consistent structure

in the vendor portal, they want you to submit just the one signed bar file. everything is already included in it when you package it.
