  +--net.rim.device.api.crypto.encoder.EncodedSignature

public class EncodedSignature
extends Object

Stores encoded signatures using any of the supported encoding algorithms.

Since the algorithm data is stored along with the encoded signature, it is possible to decode a signature without knowing the algorithm explicitly. SignatureDecoder governs all the encoding and decoding details for the developer.

Category:
Signed: This element is only accessible by signed clients. If you intend to use this element, please contact RIM to establish the necessary agreements that will allow you to have your COD files signed. Signing is only required for use on the device, development under the JDE can occur without signing the CODs.

Since:
JDE 3.6.0
