    Signing FAQ

    Hi all..
    I am working on an application for symbian 3'rd edition phones. I need to get clarified on some of the issus i face in signing the application.

    1) Is it not possible to use an application without developer certificate. i know that we can can use self signed certificate for this . But its capabilities are restricted. I am using SwEvent capability in my application.

    2) Is there any tools for testing the application before signing. Please guide me with sources for this.

    Anxiously waiting for the reply,,


    Thanks in advance
    Anoop..

    Hello,
    Here is the link which will help you in understanding for which capabilities you would need developer certificate to test your sis file on device before sending it to symbian signed. SwEvent needs developer certificate.

    you will get various tools from www.symbiansigned.com after registration.

    regards,

    With Self-certification you would have access to user grantable capabilities. While with Developer certificate you can access some more capabilities. However Developer Certificate lasts for 6 months of period.

    AppTest Lite tool helps you in testing your application under Symbian Signing criteria. Note that if your application passes through this AppTest Lite tool, it doesn't mean that you will pass through real Symbian signing process.
