    Is the Key Pair Generated During Signing Dependent on the MIDlet?

    This may be an obvious question, but I have not been able to find a direct answer to it, and I am not a security expert --

    During the process of signing a MIDlet, is the key pair generated in the first step dependent on the actual MIDlet? Could the key generation be performed without a completed MIDlet? I assume the key generation is not dependent on the MIDlet, as the keytool command does not require .jar/.jad filenames as input arguments.

    Assuming this is true, then can a code signing certificate be used to sign multiple independent MIDlets?

    Thanks for the help

    A code signing certificate has no dependencies on the file(s) to be signed, and can be used to sign as many files as you wish.

    Thanks for the quick response. So I assume that means it is very hard to incorrectly create the CSR file that is sent to the CA (if you follow the steps in the Signed MIDlet Developers Guide)?
