hello,
a team member in other country try to provide my app in google play store but he get a message the app expire soon :(

i need help how to use the keytool for google play. i saw elsewhere, is -validity 10000 allowed???

without expire/validity it get a automatic expire date
D:\Java\jdk-9.0.4\bin\keytool -genkey -v -keystore D:\MR_B4A\deufolmr.keystore -alias b4a -keysize 1024

ok, i found this in web, seems if me using 10000 it should be ok
If you plan to publish your application(s) on Google Play, note that a validity period ending after 22 October 2033 is a requirement. You can not upload an application if it is signed with a key whose validity expires before that date.

If you really want to see your key's expiration time though, you can use keytool:

keytool -list -v -keystore my.keystore

this "Google Play App Signing service" looks like much effort/more time-consuming and complicated.
i will try a bigger validity first and hope we get this app in store this week.
