[SOLVED] Use of JKS files

Post by yunior.portilla » Thu Jun 04, 2020 7:10 pm

So far I have used a key generated with the java keytool to sign my applications developed with LC, the one I assign in the Standalone Applications Settings. My question is if you can use a jks keystore to sign my app or only .keystore files are allowed :?:

I didn't have much luck with. jks, I had to change it to .keystore. That's what LC expects. But the files are the same regardless of extension so you can either change the terminal command to use the right output file, or probably just change the extension in the one you already have.

Thank you very much Jaque

I tried several times with jks keys and it didn't work with perfect keystore keys.

There is a command to change the .keystore to .jks format. It is mentioned while generating the .keystore
Indeed it then has an .jks extension which i also renamed to .keystore to let it work with LC.\
But i don't know how a .jks differs internally from an .keystore file

Livecode seems to be expecting a .keystore, from what I've seen they don't differ much.

Thank you
