Help - Very slow cod signing causing builds to fail

[ Edited ]

Never mind, the issue seems to be gone. All signing is back to a few minutes.  I changed nothing.  I feel very foolish for having invested time in this.


On or about July 20 2012, we started to see the signing of our client application cod file begin to take a very long time, over an hour when I expect a few minutes. Our cod file has 165 required and 55 optional signatures. When I run the signature interactively, I see the first 80 or so signature requests happen quickly, then things get slower and slower. When it finishes, 5 of the optional signatures fail.

We build the source for multiple versions of the BB OS so having hour long cod signing is unacceptable. AFAIK, nothing has changed on our end.


What can I do?




Update, it looks like the delay is only present in signing our 4.2.1 and 4.3 BB OS version cod files, 4.2.1 took 25 minutes, 4.3 took 45 minutes. Signing 4.2.6 took 22 seconds, 4.7 took 17 seconds...

Check your OS and Java system type. We faced same issue at that time our os was 32 bit and java 64 bit (vice versa).  Both must have same system type.
