Signing BB10 application from my developer's key

Hi Everyone,


I hired a developer to develop a BB10 application for me. Now he has provided me a bar file signed with his own signing keys. Can I submit this application to App World using my account? Or I need to ask for the code and again sign the application. What are the criterias we need to match?


Your efforts will be appreciated.

Thanks a bunch,

Re: Signing BB10 application from my developer's key

You can submit it, but I recommend getting it signed with your own set of code signing keys, which the developer can install and then send to you as a backup.


Reason being if you want to release a new version, it should be signed with the same code signing key or you'll run into problems (described at the link below).
