Code Signing with Eclipse

Hello Everyone,

I have a problem that has been plaguing me for a long time. I registered for a code signature here on the BlackBerry website, and I received the three files in the email. Then I followed the instructions for signing my application in Eclipse with the BlackBerry plug-in. The first time I did so, the Signature Tool said that the files were signed, but I was still getting denied access to the protected API's at runtime. So I tried to sign the Eclipse project again, and then it had the audacity to tell me that my password was wrong. I tried many variants of the password that I know I used, but it still refused to let me sign.  When I use the File Signer tool on a specific .cod file, it accepts my password and signs the file, as far as I can tell, so I know  the password isn't wrong.

So this is what I need: first, I need my password to work, and second, I need Eclipse to actually sign my project, so I can keep going on this application.

Thanks for any help!

Re: Code Signing with Eclipse

FileSigner is used to sign an application with a custom key you create.  This differs from signing with RIM issued keys (which are requred to run an application on a real BlackBerry Smartphone).


There is no way to reset your password for RIM issued code signing keys.  Instead, request a new set here:  https://www.blackberry.com/SignedKeys/
