certificate for commercial uses


I'm developing a java application for RIM devices, and I sign it with a certificate I purchased from RIM. 

I was wondering if that certificate is sufficient for commercial uses (in case I sell my application), or I need to purchase another certificate for that?

Re: certificate for commercial uses

you can sell your app even without signing. the code signing is only to grant you access to certain limited classes.

Re: certificate for commercial uses

Application must be signed to run on actual device if the application uses classes from signed RIM API.


digital signing keys are lifetime and cost 20 USD. One time payment.
