Hallelujah! BlackBerry ID Replaces Code Signing Keys For Developers

image

BlackBerry had finally gone and simplified the idiotic asinine ridiculously complicated Code Signing process. Developers can now use their BlackBerry ID to store their code Signing credentials instead of keys.

BlackBerry ID support is now included in the BlackBerry Native SDK, BlackBerry AIR SDK and Android tools.  Support in the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK will be coming in its next release. Check out the details here.

Finally!!! Not sure what took BlackBerry so long to fix this crappy requirement. They should be shouting this from the rooftop!

  1. Only like 5 years overdue…

  2. It’s a good idea, but there’s some shortcomings with it that I hope are addressed.

    First, the new signing tokens expire. I can’t think of any good reason for that. Signing Keys are a PITA to set up, but once they’re up that’s it, you’re done forever. And it’s super easy to back them up and switch from PC to PC.

    Second, and more important IMO, they’re not enough information given about how this will affect your current keys. Especially for WebWorks Devs, as there isn’t a WebWorks SDK that supports signing this way yet.

    I’m just going to wait a few months and see how this goes before I mess with it.

    • Totally agree Scrid. Not sure how they are going to implement but I am just hoping it lowers the most pain in the ass barrier to entry for new BlackBerry developers. I just hope BlackBerry does not find a way to make this even more complicated then it needs to be.
