Is signing required when deploying client application into the device?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I am trying to build my own version of the sample push client application. I have two questions:

 

- First, Is there a way to test BIS pushes on simulator, a workaround, maybe?

 

- Second, is it necessary to sign the API classes used in sample client application before uploading into the device? The sample app works fine on the device, but a version that has a very minor change does not work, even does not start. Could it be related with code signing?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Burak

You cannot test actually BIS pushes with the simulator. You can test your app without push functionality using the simulator.

 

Yes you need to sign the application unless your device is "unlocked"
