Ovi Store publishing

 

Hi All,
in 2 weeks me and my team will finish app, i hope, then i’d like to know which are the steps to be able to put our Qt app on Ovi Store.
I’d like to publish an app for Symbian 3 Device.
Surfing on the net I’ve found a lot of doc about Symbian Signed Ovi Signed but now I’ve a great chaos in my head.
I’ve my app ready for example and it uses these capabilities:
ReadUserData, Location, UserEnvironment, LocalServices, ReadDeviceData, WriteDeviceData, WriteUserData.
Now the questions are:
1-Should I signed my app from symbian signed: Certified Signed, Express Signed, and after publish it on Ovi?

2-Should I signed my app with cer and key release from Ovi and submit app?

Thanks to all.

You can use any one of the above approach. If going through the second approach, you can have your app distributed only via ovi store.

I did also felt confused with all signing options etc… I followed the instructions on this webpage [wiki.forum.nokia.com], we’ll see if they accept my app :)

Btw, I was using the remote compiler to create the sis file, I’m not sure if it can be used for ovi.

Using remote compiler is ok. For ovi submission there are other criterias, you can download the pdf from publish.ovi.com

I did the process once, but the app did not need any special capability.

When you submit the sis package to be published in the Ovi Store, it must be a unsigned package with the UID3 they assign to your app. Then they express sign it, when applicable.

Another page [forum.nokia.com] about it (I may already read that, I’m posting the link for the future generations :-P)

If it has basic capabilities and you just want to put it on the Ovi Store, there is no signing process.
In the Content Item, just upload the unsigned app with the provided (from Nokia’s email) UID that you used to compile it.

Note that Qt apps have to use SmartInstaller. This used to be fairly complicated but QtCreator 2.1 handles all of the work for you now. It has fields for dev cert/dev key/UID3/SmartInstaller when you create the project.

If you self sign the application – a warning message would be shown to the user. If you are ok you can skip symbian signing for apps with basic capabilities.
