This article applies to the following:


  • BlackBerry® Tablet OS SDK for Adobe® AIR®
  • BlackBerry® WebWorks™ SDK for the BlackBerry Tablet OS




You are required to sign your BlackBerry Tablet OS application with a Developer Certificate and BlackBerry Tablet OS Code Signing key before it can be deployed to the BlackBerry® PlayBook™.


The Developer Certificate must be a self signed certificate created using the BlackBerry signing tools (blackberry-keytool).  Certificates from other signing authorities are not supported.


BlackBerry Tablet OS Code Signing keys can be ordered using the web form linked to on this page:  http://www.blackberry.com/go/codesigning
