Signed applications for publication in Android Market
Hello, respected Hebraist! May I ask lamerskie the question, maybe my English is not very good, but still. From the official Google documentation I did not understand how to sign apps for publishing on the Android Market and whether any to do it. After all, when you register in the Store, he immediately proposes "to download the first app". If needed, where to get the private key of the developer. Can someone more experienced to clarify the situation? Thanks in advance.
The application must be signed in order for the market to make sure that when you update that you — the author of the app.
You can sign your apk using tools of your sdk, or via ant(he would do it himself, if you have generated a build script via the sdk), or that the easiest is through the IDE. In eclipse, in IDEA, there is a point of type "Extract signed package". The wizard will ask you to create a keystore and key in it, and then sign that key apk. Zabekapit keystore and do not lose the password!
