I am developing thrid party application for Blackberry.
I am using paid API of blackberry in my application. I have read about the code signing process and its fees. Currently, I am doing testing of my application on Simulator.
My query is -
Once I complete the testing on simulator, I have to sign the code and deploy the application on Blackberry handheld.
Lets assume, I found defects in my application on blackberry device and I have fixed it in the code.
Do I need to sign the code again? Do I need to pay everytime 20$ fees for code signing?
Is same keys are re-usable?
If yes, then how many times I can re-use it for the same project/application?
Please help me.
Appreciate your quick reply.

welcome to the support forums!
the signing key is valid for nearly unlimited use and can be used for all applications you develop. it is a one time fee.

the keys are used to identify a developer. you agree to terms of usage when buying them.
if you find somebody else to sign your application for you this person is violating the terms of usage - and acting quite stupid, too. you, on the other side, would have no control over the application, and the other person could put own code into your program.
