Sign Adobe AIR applications

Adobe AIR applications must be digitally signed in order for users to install them. IBM Worklight provides a default certificate for signing AIR applications that can be used for development and test purposes.

For production...

  1. Obtain a PKCS12 certificate from a certificate authority, and export it as a PFX file.

  2. Place this certificate on your hard disk.

  3. Set the <certificate> element under the <air> element in the application descriptor.

      <certificate password="PFX_password" PFXFilePath="path-to-pfx"/>

    path-to-pfx can either be relative to the root of the application, or an absolute path.
