Sign and publish
When you finish developing your app, you need to sign and publish it. The BlackBerry World storefront is where users discover, download, and review your app. Before you can distribute your app in BlackBerry World, you must sign it using your code signing key. This verifies the authorship of your app to users.
Sign your app
When you build your app using Release mode, Development Mode is automatically set to Off.
To build your project:
- In the Solution Explorer, right click the project.
- Click Build.
Increment the build number
If you are using the 10.2 API level, you can sign your app as often as you want, and you only need to increment the package build ID of your app when you upload it to BlackBerry World.
If you are using an API level prior to 10.2, you can sign your app only once per package build ID. If you have previously signed your app, you must increment the package build ID of your app before you can sign your app again.
To increment the build number:
- In the Solution Explorer, double-click the bar-descriptor.xml file of your app.
- In the Package Information section, increase the value of the Package Build ID by one.
- Rebuild your app.
Publish to BlackBerry World
You can distribute your app for BlackBerry 10 by submitting it to BlackBerry World.
