Developers Can Now Code Sign BlackBerry PlayBook Apps

Print

We forgot to make a point of this in the previous article on signing keys. Now that code signing keys are available for the BlackBerry PlayBook we are getting one step closer to the PlayBook’s launch. When the PlayBook SDK first came out and RIM opened the door for App World submissions they did not require the application code to be signed. My guess is that will now change since these keys and processes are now available.

The documentation for how to code sign a PlayBook app is a bit better than RIM’s other PlayBook documentation. You can check out the steps on how to sign PlayBook apps on a PC, Mac, or Linux machines at this link.

  1. Will we see a compromise in security now? :(

  2. Well – when you think about it, the free playbook offer was originally “until the playbook is released”. Then a few weeks ago, they gave a hard cutoff date of 3/15. Seems to me that with a bit of judicious reading between the lines… once might reasonably conclude that the release is coming sometime in the last two weeks of March.

    Reminds me… gotta get my PB app finished ;)

  3. The offer is good until 3/15? Man I gotta get moving.

  4. what ya making bob?

  5. If this is one step closer, I’m all for it.

  6. the PlayBook should be launched on Steve Jobs birthday :D
