I have successfully sign my webworks app, and is ready to deploy to Playbook device. However, i had this error when i try to deploy using command line.


Here is my command line to deploy the signed .bar file:

blackberry-deploy -installApp -password <password> -device <device_ip_address> -package <location_of_bar_file>


Here is the error message:

Sending Install request...

result::failure 500 manifest asset list mismatch (frozenset(['air/js/blackberry_

Re: "result::failure 500 manifest asset list mismatch" when deploy signed .bar webwork app on PlayBook device

The error suggests that the BAR file was modified after it was created by the bbwp.exe utility.  This changes the signature of the BAR file itself, and creates a mismatch with the internal manifest file (that defines what files are part of the BAR).


From the error message below, it looks like a variety of web assets have been modified (e.g. the Invoke and Application APIs, and the sharedglobal folder).  Does this line up with your expectations?

Hi Astanley,

Thank you for the response. Really appreciate it. Sorry for late reply, i m just back to development work.

Yes, you are right. I did modify the manifest.xml(set 'Application-Development-Mode' to 'false') after package into .bar file.

The reason i did because.. when i was going to sign the packaged .bar file, i found error stating that "Code signing request failed because Application-Development-Mode in Manifest is present and is not set to [false]".

Do you have proper way to do that? So far, i couldn't find any solution to configure the development-mode in config file.

Thank you.
