How do we sign a midlet?



I wrote a midlet which does two things that could be possible security concerns:


  1) Opens an http connection

  2) Reads/writes from the record store.


so I guess I need to sign my midlet, but I'm not sure where to begin with this. Is there a doc which details how to go about doing this? I did not see one in the resources section,

Re: How do we sign a midlet?

You can refer to the JavaDocs for the classes used by your application to determine if they need signing.  Recent versions of the BlackBerry JDE also give a warning about signing requirements when the application is built. 


You can find out more information on code signing here:
