Signing and publishing
Before you can distribute your application in the BlackBerry World storefront, you must cryptographically sign it using a BlackBerry ID token. The BlackBerry ID token also lets you create a debug token, which is required to run your development application on a device.
The signing application included with the BlackBerry 10 Native SDK adds cryptographic hash values to your application package (.bar file) during the signing process. The hash values help verify the authorship of your application to other users and the BlackBerry 10 OS.
When you set up your development environment, the Momentics IDE for BlackBerry automatically checks for a BlackBerry ID token and lets you create one and upload it if the IDE doesn't detect an existing token. When you build an application, the .bar file that is created is automatically signed using the signing token that you specified.
If something goes wrong, you can revisit the Signing page in the Momentics IDE:
- In Windows and Linux, click Window > Preferences. In Mac OS, click Momentics > Preferences.
- Expand BlackBerry, and then select Signing.
- Click BlackBerry Deployment Setup Wizard.
- Follow the steps in the wizard to configure your BlackBerry ID token.
For more options, see Signing apps.
