I am about to submit my first J2ME app to Ovi.
I have signed the Midlet using my TC TrustCenter certificate (not a Verisign or Thawte one).
I have taken the application to the Java Verfied Submission portal and past the Pretest Result.
Next step is to submit it to a test house. This step is more painfull because it touches my Layer1 (i.e. cash).
I have beed discussing with one of the test houses and got told that the app will only get Java Verfied Certification for devices based on the same platform as the ones I choose in the JV Submission portal. My questions are:
Q1: Do I need to take the "test house" step? or can I submit the app signed with the TC Cert (NOT Verising or Thawte) to Ovi, since it has passed pre-test? (actual Ovi requirement is to pass Pre-Test)
Q2: If I have to submit to test house, does it mean that once in Ovi the app will only be available for devices for which it is Java Verified Certified?, or will it be available for any device I choose?
Q3: If it is only Java Verified Certified for one platform, will it have any problem to install or run on handsets based on other platform, on which I have tested (locally and through RDA or device-anywhere) and I know that it works OK? (Not strictly an Ovi question, but I wonder if anyone knows)
Sorry for my ignorance. When I got to understand the Symbian Signed (Express / Certfied), I got asked to start with J2ME as well!
