At the recent JavaOne conference in San Francisco, the Java Verified team introduced a new R&D Signing Service and Publisher ID requirement. Both will be available in September. The R&D Signing Service will provide a free-of-charge opportunity to sign Java™ Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) applications for testing purposes. The Publisher ID, akin to a passport to Java Verified services, will cost approximately $200 a year and will be provided by TC Trustcenter. Developers who already have TC Trustcenter Publisher IDs for Symbian Signed can continue using them.
