[Tizen Application-dev] Steps or procedure to get platform privilege

Hi All,

I am new to Tizen. I need to develop a test tool to simulate key
events to test an application. After exploring Tizen, I came accross
GenerateKeyEvent API which I though can be used to simulate key input

I used this API in my sample application developed using sdk and
deployed on emulator to test the API. However, it gets killed and
exits. Further analysis showed that it shows INVALID_PRIVILEGES error
and is because this API needs platform privilege. I have added the
corresponding privilege in the application manifest file.
But still the issue is not resolved.

Further exploring on net I came to know that platform privilege is not
available for everyone and is available only for authorized or
registered Tizen app developers.

I would like to know what is the process or steps to obtain this
privilege and what is the forum or boy to be contacted for getting
this privilege.

Also, is there any other mechanism or API available on Tizen using
which I can simulate key or touch input events?

Any pointers or help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
