    VeriSign Certificate OR Unified Testing Initiative (UTI) root Certificate?

    Hello everybody!

    I've signed my J2ME application with a Verisign Class 3 Public Primary CA but it seems that wasn't a good deal!
    Indeed, once signed, this application no longer is supported by my Samsung SGH-D840 even if on a Nokia6300 all still run well.
    The difference between these 2 handsets regarding the signing aspects is that the SGH-D840 is not JSR-177 SATSA compatible whereas the Nokia6300 is.

    A friend told me that the Unified Testing Initiative (UTI) root certificate is available on more handsets than the VeriSign certificate. He seems be right because all the handsets marked with a (+) in the list at http://www.javaverified.com/docs/Tab...vices_1.20.pdf support the UTI Certificate.

    My questions:
    1) Has anyone ever used the UTI certificate to sign a J2ME application? If yes, could the person tell me if he recommend it instead of +VeriSign Certificate+?
    2) Could you confirm if UTI certificate is supported by many more handsets (regardless to the manufacturer) in relationship with +VeriSign Certificate+?

    Thanks you in advance,

    Hi,

    I have not used UTI Java Verified Certificate but I have read about it. I think it will be costly to use that certificate. Go through its process of signing the application. If I remember it correctly one has to submit the application to them and then they test it and certify it. So if any change happens to be there you may have to follow the complete procedure again resulting in more charges for the same application.

    Hope this helps you out.
