    Lightbulb Java Verified Experiences

    I have a J2ME game, that I would like to publish on OVI. However I came to realize that this requires the game to go through Java Verified certification and signing. In this thread I will try to share my experiences with this process. Hopefully this can shed some light on how difficult this is (or isn't).

    I won't go into too much detail about the application itself, but here are some short info to understand how it relates to the process:

    - It's a RPG game, with several levels. Each level is stored as a binary resource file, i.e. a level only has data, there is no level specific Java code.

    - The app is self-contained, i.e. it does not make any connections or similar.

    - It uses RMS to store game state. A single RecordStore is used.

    - Only MIDP 2.0 on CLDC 1.0 API's are used, no other JSR's or Nokia UI.

    - The game is localized in several languages. Language texts are stored in binary resource files along with level data.

    Publisher ID

    Okay first hurdle: Publisher ID

    According to recent presentations Java Verified now requires that you sign the application with a Publisher ID from TC TrustCenter before submitting to the Java Verified site. See e.g.: http://forumnokia.emea.acrobat.com/p59417768/

    However the Java Verified site doesn't say anything about this, and more specifically does not say what kind of ID is needed.

    The TC TrustCenter website has a Publisher ID for Symbian: http://www.trustcenter.de/en/product...or_symbian.htm , but there is no mention of Java Verified. So I would like to know if this is the correct ID before paying the 200 USD. I've emailed Java Verified, but haven't received any answer yet

    I've found this article on the wiki, but it only talks about Symbian apps: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...r_Publisher_ID

    Test Providers

    Selecting a test provider.

    The Java Verified website lists 4 providers: http://www.javaverified.com/test_providers.jsp

    Of these the link to Capgemini gives me a timeout, and only RelQ has a list of prices: http://59.145.143.45/relquti/pricing.asp

    However RelQ (now EDS) only seems to have English speaking testers (from what they told me after I contacted them).

    I'm awaiting feedback from the other 2.

    Hello pjohnsen
    are you sure you need a Java Verified?
    Have a look at the new instructions of OVI

    Re: Java Verified Experiences

    Okay the exact wording of the Publishing Guide from 21 apr. is:

    "Java application submissions must be pre-tested and fulfill Java Verified testing requirements. Visit
    http://www.javaverified.com/ for more information on the Java Verified service. Verisign and Thawte are
    also accepted for signing the Java application."

    (http://nds2.fds-download.nokia.com/f...A1D63WEFOESBFR) section 5.2 under Entry criteria for Symbian or Java application testing.

    However other threads suggest that apps. signed with Verisign have been rejected, and Nokia has not yet replied with a definitive answer.

    Re: Publisher ID

    Some good news

    I heard back from Java Verified regarding Publisher ID. They currently do NOT require signing the app. with publisher ID before submission. This is however planned for their updated site due in June.

    So no need to pay the 200 USD for the Publisher ID.
