How to package a app and install it on a bb10 alpha?

Hi there,

 

I can now develop my application, and run/debug it from Momentics. I am trying to package the application and send the package to others for testing purpose, without for them to build the binary again. How ever, I can not find documentation or threads in this frum on how to do that?

Could you let me know if it is possible and how to do it? Thanks.

If you sign the app, you can have other users side load the application if they put their devices into development mode...

I have configured the signature in Momentics. My problem is how to package the application (so I can send out the package), and how others and load the application package?

Thanks,
Dong

On the project select "Export" and then "BlackBerry/Release Build" this will add a signed bar file to arm folder of the project...

Place the DevAlpha into Development Mode and then from the command line

blackberry-deploy -installApp -launchApp -device <device-ip-address> -package <AppName>.bar -password <device-password>
