Signing app not recognized on BB

I can successfully sign the app, but when I use the Desktop manager to transfer the app, and then attempt to run it, I get the unsigned module error.

 

As far as I can tell, I'm not calling any of the encrypted APIs. So the main three should be sufficient. What should I be looking for?

 

Now, when I look into the folder and try to find the ALX file, I don't see it, but in teh Desktop manager, it sees it. So perhaps the desktop manager has cached it somewhere, or who know what. And the ALX generation isn't really finding it? All confusing.

 

So I reved the version number of the app, compiled, signed it, and started the  DM again. Still can't see the ALX file. The DM automatically recognized the updated and offered to update my BB. So of it goes and does the update all happy. I tried to launch my app, and same issue.

 

So on the BB, I remove it by selecting delete on the actual app BB menu. Going back to the DM, I see its no longer selected, so I select it again and try it once more. No use. Help?

Is it the same behaviour when you download app using OTA?

Re: Signing app not recognized on BB

I posted the jar, cod and cso file onto a web site and then opened the cso file from the bb browser. I got the "application does not contain a signature". Told it to do install anyway, then got a

 

907 Invalid JAR

Descriptor missing required attribute: MIDlet-1

 

I based the project on UIApplication. Is that wrong?

My bold is running 4.6, and I'm using JDE 4.7. Is that the issue? Do i need to downgrade to JDE 4.6?

You have to point to the JAD file not to CSO file.

Re: Signing app not recognized on BB

My personal site is not allowing JAD to be uploaded. My BB will see the Jar file, but not the Jad. Although I can see the JAD there. I don't have any MDS runtime on the hosting site. I guess the learning curve is a lot steeper than I thought. Back to the books.

MDS runtime is not related to your hosting site.

When you point to JAD file from your browser, is the content of JAD displayed instead of installation message.. if so you ahve to set the proper MIME type on Web server.

Its not allowing to download the file, but changing the extension to JAR and I get the download. So I know the BB can reach the URL.

Re: Signing app not recognized on BB

What is happening if you point to JAD file?

Re: Signing app not recognized on BB

Some webservers don't even support filetypes such as smil, jad etc .. You can't even reach the url with normal browser itself, In which you have to fix it in server side.. 

 

Thanks!
