The build server will automatically extract the certificates it needs according to the bundle type.
If one is found, it will be used to sign the app bundle. The easiest way to produce a P12 that includes all 3 kinds of certificates is to export them from the Keychain Access app Requires a Mac.
You will then be prompted to select a location to save the. If your app requires access to the "outside world", you need to request entitlements for that access.
If you select a bundle type that uses the sandbox, you you will be shown a list of all of the available entitlements from which you can "check" the ones that you wish to include. Fork us on GitHub.
You can download the full PDF developer guide here. Here you can provide your certificate s as a. Bundle Types There are three bundle types which dictate what the build server produces for you when you build your project as a Desktop Mac OS App.
Understanding Mac Certificates For the purposes of Mac application distribution, there are 3 types of certificates that we will be interested in. Obtaining Certificates Apple provides documentation on obtaining certificates on its website but the process described there involves Xcode.
You can reuse the same CSR file for generating all 3 certificates. Java is an optionally installed technology, so it looks like Java programmers are out of luck when it comes to OS X software design.
You can use NSTask to execute the java executable in your bundle using vnu. Select the option corresponding to the certificate you wish to generate. You can also check the gradle. DMG - Produces a. Sometimes users install Java which includes the JRE, naturally on their own in order to support other Java applications.
Apple is no longer supporting future versions of Java in the newest upgrade to OS X — Lion — and will ship with a deprecated version of the runtime. While rejecting any Java code is a pretty big deal, it seems that the general requirements for apps have also gotten even stricter.
It also seems like Apple is getting its head back on its turtlenecked shoulders when it comes to political satire in apps. According to the document, "Professional political satirists and humorists are exempt from the ban on offensive or mean-spirited commentary. These guidelines are all for the actual App Store. There is one caveat.
We will get that signed another way. Another quirk is that you can give different entitlements to each file. In the javafxpackger we sign with an entitlements file that contains only the app-sandbox and inherit entitlements, so they inherit all the entitlements from the main application. Next, you will want to sign the Java directory itself. Actually you need to sign all plugins and frameworks in your app, but the overwhelming majority of java apps will only have one plugin: Java. You may not need the --deep flag, but adding it will not get you out of signing all the interior jars and libraries.
You may not need the -f flag but it insures that your signature will be the only one. Or not. I bet you thought you were done? Now we need to create an installer package to send to the app store. Use the productbuld too to generate the need file. Now you can load it into the Mac App store using the Application Loader tool.
You will first need to go to iTunes Connect and set things up. But we have now left the Java specific part of the assembly so there are many other blog posts out there by more qualified and experienced Mac App Store developers. There are many other potholes that you could run into.
Two I hit were not having a x 2x icon, and another was a dispute about copyright on an icon. I changed the icon rather than wade through the appeals process to prove that the icon was in the public domain.
