    Question Certificate Question

    I'm trying to use a function that requires a signed midlet (see http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph..._ID_in_Java_ME). The page says "Note: In Series 40 devices the MIDlet needs to be signed to a manufacturer or operator domain; otherwise the property will be null." After reading the wiki pages, this requires a certificate from Verisign. Is there a way to test this before purchasing a certificate... even see if the functionality works??

    Thumbs up Re: Certificate Question

    Hi,
    Well if your midlet need to be signed in order to access the restricted API..then that means you must have to have the midlet signed..there is no alternative..and there is nothing like first check then you can purchase..People around the world purchasing the same and using..and they never have any kind of issues...so dont worry and you can have this as working one.

    Thanks,
    Thanks with Regards,

    Exclamation Re: Certificate Question

    Be careful

    You CAN'T sign an application in operator or manufacturer domain unless you have an agreement with any of them.

    For operator domain, the operator needs to load a certificate in the phones and that means in most of the cases no backward compatibility.

    It's not that simple in this case, I would suggest to find a different alternative.

    Hi,

    As far as certification goes Thawte provides the certificates and if your requirements are not matched then you can give that certificate back and they would return your money back.

    Thawte will also be under 3rd party trusted domain. For which confirmations can be removed through certification go to the below link.

    Re: Certificate Question

    So the Manufacturers/Operators domain is different than a 3rd party domain signature?

    Re: Certificate Question

    Yes, it is different.

    there are three different domains and you need to be aware of the capabilities that enables each of them.

    Operator and manufacturer domains allow the midlet to use sensitive information about the network not available in third party domain. Typical example: cellid in S40. There are also some aditional capabilities but as mentioned before, you need an agreemente either with the operator or manufacturer in this case Nokia.

    Third party domain is usually to get rid of confirmations and for that you just follow the normal signing process.

    Unhappy Re: Certificate Question

    Hi All,

    I want my application to run smoothly with out device prompts, not even when it is getting installed for the first time.

    I like to know the prompt's that are associated with TTP (Trusted Third Party), Operator and Manufacture domains.

    Which certificate will help me to run my app without any system prompts?

    Please let me respective certificate service provider for all the 3 domains (Trusted Third Party - TTP, Operator or Manufacture). I am targeting my application to run on JSR 248 enabled devices.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Sriram

    Re: Certificate Question

    For unsigned and trusted 3rd party MIDlet APi access settings see here
    http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...on_real_phones

    In general, for operator and manufacturer domain the settings are "always allowed"
    Note also that getting your MIDlet signed with operator or manufacturer certificate requires close partnering with the specific company (and in Nokia's case the MIDlet has to be built by Nokia or Nokia-branded... which requires business rationale and will not happen in 99.99% of the cases)
