I followed the instruction posted at:
and I think I did everything correctly, when I swap one set of companies keys for another and publish everything seems to work fine and no errors or anyting from withn BBworld. however what confises me it appears that I don't need to use Company "A" keys when I publish to Company "A" vendor account and instead can use whatever keys I want to pubilsh to whatever company vendor account I wish to. Being able to do this confuses me immensly, as I thinough I would need to install Company "A" keys to pub Company "A" vendor account, and install Company "B" keys to pub to company "B" vendor account ect..
Am I doing something wrong or is this working correctly..

I think it is working correctly. I have posted in BB World with the same vendor account different apps signed with different keys.
However if you post for sale an update, then BB World will check if the new release has been signed with the same keys, so updates can work.
To make sure that you've signed the app with the right key you may open the .bar file with an archiver (as it is basically a zip file), go to the META-INF\ directory and check the files. The MANIFEST.MF has the author name and author-id.

The author id should be the same whenever you sign with the same key.
While the Package-Author field could be influenced by your project configuration.
By the way, which BB10 development platforms are you using?

Both 10.1 and 10.2 SDK, cascades within the momentics ide.
the authorID seems to come from the debug token, so is it okay to have several apps from several vendors each using the same authorID and just a different Author name or even the same author name?
