We are planning on having several exceptions from the Brew requirements. We will list these, but I am hoping others will be able to tell us if these exceptions will be allowed or not.

1. We weren't planning on having a version number visible in the application, only in the MIF file.

2. We have a demo mode (based on the Demo flag set in the MIF file) that cycles through a number of screens repeated. The cycle starts with the Splash and Credits screens, so they are repeated in the demo.

3. We treat AVK_CLR the same as any other key when in demo mode, because there are no menus to exit from

4. We don't increment or decrement the ILicense count, but instead rely on the Brew App manager to require re-upping the subscription (we aren't really use based)

Any feedback would be appreciated.

1) we do the same
No clue on the rest :)

If you don't have a version number, you are seriously risking failing your NSTL test. I wouldn't mess with them or take liberties with the test specification.
Midiringtones, did your application that had no version number actually pass TBT?

Well I can't recommend anything to anyone else... but we have been putting the version in the MIF only for months now, never raised a flag.

Interesting! Knowing that could have saved us a lot of money.

Nope, you wont fail, but you wont fullfill the pre-requirements (so you will not have to pay). The app must be somewhere, either in the mif, either somewhere in the app.

That's what he said, Kufa. He has the version number in the MIF file, and that is sufficient. Make sure though, to properly indicate that in the submission documents so that the testers at NSTL know where to find the version number.

ezavada,
I don't really see a problem with what you're doing. None of these are truly exceptions. Just make sure you terminate the slide-show wit hthe CLR key, but that's about all I'd recommend.
There is no reason why not to have a demo in the form of a slide show. No one imposes on you how your demo has to look like.
The version number thing is not an issues as we have covered.
And the use of the license count is at your liberty as well. I've never used it either.

Thanks to everyone who responded. We are probably going to go ahead and put a version number in with our rules text just to be on the safe side, and not worry about the other issues. In any case we'll be sure to highlight any deviation in our submission and definitely have the version number in the MIF file.
If any of these things end up causing us problems I'll post that info back here.
