In order to create a valid signed .bar file for your Blackberry Playbook I have realised that you must not choose the option to export a signed bundle in FlashBuilder if you do then it will not create the required
Instead export the .BAR file without the digital signature and then use the terminal from your Playbook SDK Folder with the following properties.
blackberry-signer -verbose -cskpass "your CSK password" -keystore "your P12 file" -storepass "your P12 file password" "BAR_file.bar" RDK
This will create a APP.BAR.sig file for you with the correct files after which you can then use this command to repackage your signed bundle.
blackberry-signer -keystore "your P12 file" -storepass "your p12 file password" "BAR_file.bar" author
Next you can try Installing the .Bar file to the simulator for testing.
./blackberry-deploy -installApp -password "your simulator pssword" -device "the ip address from simulator" -package "BAR_file.bar"
I recently read this interesting post from eFinancialCareers that highlights some major players future direction when it comes to SDP importance. All good news for us SDP developers as far as I can see.
Just wrapping up my first Blackberry Playbook Application ready for the now extended Free Blackberry Playbook offer. I must say that I have found it extremely easy to developer for. Apart from the Camera Api's not working I have been able to create a version of an iOS application i have been working on in less than a week! ( it has taken me months to write the iOS version and it is still not finished! ).
Once I get my app approved I will do a more detailed post on how i created it.
Details Coming soon.
