Signing blackberry application



I would like knowing about the benefits, and I mean, REAL benefits about the blackberry code signing. My questions are :

- How many security prompts can you skip?

- In order to skip security prompts, if you have your application signed, is there a chance of skip all the push registry security prompts? and the prompts about using javax.wireless.messaging?

- Can you use the code signing to generate OTA a signed application? If not, the way of code signing in blackberry is just to sign one and only application?


Please I would like knowing about these issues, if it´s possible to make it in a proper way and if you really skip all the prompts or if you cant skip the prompts.



Thx in advance , Kind regards

Re: Signing blackberry application

1. Signing does not affect on Permission prompts. Signing allows you to use classes which require signing.

2. There is no way to supress permission confirmation dialogs.

3. If you sign a *.cod file it can be distributed via OTA, but it won't supress security dialogs.
