Dear All,

Can some one help me with the process of signing a Midlet. The literature available on net is more of theory than practise. Many examples suggest creating a self certified key and etc. But i want to deploy my application for actual use and not for testing i.e i want to buy a verisign(or some other) certificate for Java and use that to sign my midlets. It would be helpful if some one call tell the process or point me to any good resource.

Thanks and Regards,

You need to contact a company which provides digital certificates, get the certificate and the signature as base64encoded values. Then add them to the Midlet attributes so that the phone will pick them. My assumption is that, these certificates are very expensive. But I am not very sure about that. Process wise it is very straight forward. Hope this helps. Regards.
