Update your bar-descriptor.xml configuration file

Before you can test, debug or sign your application on a BlackBerry device, you need to update your bar-descriptor.xml file with the author and authorId values supplied by the BlackBerry Signing Authority. To set up a debug token, and configure your computer for signing, use the deployment setup wizard. For more information on the deployment setup wizard, see Configure your development environment using Flash Builder.

You do not need to complete these steps if you are testing your application on a BlackBerry 10 Simulator. The BlackBerry 10 Simulator does not require a debug token.

  1. In Adobe Flash Builder, on the Window menu, click Preferences.
  2. In the Preferences window, expand Flash Builder > Target Platforms > BlackBerry. Click Signing.
  3. In the Debug Tokens section, select your debug token, click Details.

Once you have found your Author Id and Author values, update your bar-descriptor.xml.

  1. In Adobe Flash Builder, in the Package explorer view, in the src folder for your project, double-click the bar-descriptor.xml file.
  2. In the text editor pane for bar-descriptor.xml, update the value of the author element.
    <author>Author Name</author>
    
  3. In the text editor pane for bar-descriptor.xml, update the value of the authorId element.
    <authorId>Author Id</authorId>
    
  4. On the File menu, click Save.
