Sign problem after upgraded to webworks 2.0

[ Edited ]

here's my problem:


I've tested and signed my app "Emoji" and now trying to upload to blackberry world,but it was rejected because of a different Package-ID


my new config.xml is:


<widget id="emoji" version="" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"




and my former config.xml is :


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"
version="" id="emoji">




you can see that the 2 id settings are same.




when build in release mode, I got this in MANIFEST.MF file:

Package-Name: emoji
Package-Id: gYABgJSuBKzV0sdItE9Yz4yhs


and the former build is :

Package-Name: emoji

Package-Id: gYABgLXdKS-gRXFiK_zGEPk3Q


it changes!!!


Please help me with this,thanks!!






I think maybe the problem is because I switched to sign with blackberryid ?

webworks 2.0 requires blackberryid,right?

which is not supported in webworks 1.0,right?

Re: Sign problem after upgraded to webworks 2.0

As you know WebWorks 2.0 uses the new token-based code signing method, which is associated with your BBID account.


To keep the package-id values the same (between an old and new build) in your application MANIFEST.MF file, you must link your old code signing keys with the new token. That way the signing server recognizes your signature and applies the correct one to the compiled BAR file.  This is done using the following cli command:

Also, the legacy signing keys are still supported in WebWorks 2.0. You are encouraged to upgrade your keys to get the benefits of the BBID signing system, but it is not a requirement.
