For the last 3,5 years im having problems with the blackberry webworks signer (bbwp).
We are talking in those 3,5 years maybe 4 or 5 different computers, different operation systems, everything.
The problem is that the signer keeps crashing, it starts signing and it hangs lets say on 0/150, 10/150 sometimes around 30/150.
when i click anywhere in the signer window it crashed, i need to sign, force quit, sign, force quit lke 10-20 times sometimes even more before it continues and sign the app.
Also i changed signing keys over the years but that also never fixed the problem.
Is there no fix at all for this? my question is getting ignored over the years by now.
Solved! Go to Solution.

At the moment, (but this was ofc not always this version, changed over the years also).
- BlackBerry WebWorks SDK 22.214.171.124
But i also tried with java 6 few years ago and didn't help anything.
Im used to it now, but its annoying that i need to sign sometimes 20 times

I'm guessing that you're working with the original WebWorks for the Java smartphones. I'm sorry to say that we haven't had people assigned to that technology for a long time and there are no plans right now to do more with it. The signer tool is just added in to WebWorks, so it's really just a portion of the old JDE tools. I'm just trying to give context here - that this is some very old stuff that isn't being maintained, and there are many limitations that couldn't be fixed even when that platform was in active development. Those frustrations encountered when signing on the old platform were considered in the design of the new signing system for PlayBook and BlackBerry 10, and the underlying operating system itself changes things quite a bit.
I'm not sure if we can offer any complete solutions for you on the old platform, but don't restrict yourself to just the WebWorks forum when looking for solutions - there will be plenty of additional resources on this topic in the Java forum as well. Hopefully you will be able to migrate more of your work to the BlackBerry 10 platform in the future.

Thanks both of you!
I will look into installing Java 6, and I already build BlackBerry 10 apps, i just try to keep supporting the old BlackBerry 7 OS.
