I am using WTK 2.1, I create a package, then sign the jar with the toolkit. I made my choice for the trusted domain. I then choose "Run via OTA". Wehn the application installs it says it is putting it into the untrusted domain. Why is this. All the jad file properties are set from the Toolkit, so I couldn't have any bad values in there to make it go into the untrusted doamin, could there?

Thanks

Mark

Hmm, I do not think a signed JAR will be automatically placed in the trusted domain. In real world applications, the signed JAR would only be trusted if the signer is trusted. (e.g., I imagine that if you have an application signed by Nokia's digital certificate, it should be treated as trusted on Nokia devices). For all third party signed applications, the user should be able to place them into pre-defined security domains at the installation time.
