Testing and Deployment

Installing on device



I'm in a process of porting some of our webOS apps and games for Playbook and would like to start testing on actual device.


I just went through like 50 forum and other posts, at least 5 different registrations (just to be able to post here + get my "token"), countless RIM dev portal pages... And all I can say is -- REALLY? I mean... REALLY!?


Does RIM hate developers?

Even Apple is much more dev friendly. And comparing it to developing for webOS... This is just WAY too painful. 


Do I really need to go through this: 



And this: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Tablet-OS-SDK-for-Adobe-AIR/Problem-deploying-unsigned-bar-on...


Or (hopefully) "just" this: http://www.mellisdesigns.com/blog/?p=37



Or is there any easy way how to install MY apps on MY device w/o wasting days playing with command lines, tokes, errors, waiting for emails and stuff -- every 10/30 days for every single computer I'm using (still not really sure how it works - but it's pretty ridiculous)?



Sorry for not very positive 1st post, but this is a huge disappointment.

We are working towards reducing the number of logins required by BlackBerry Developers.


You do not need to use the command line tools.  We have GUI interfaces for all of them.  What type of application are you developing (WebWorks, AIR, Android or Native)?
