I've been working on a Sandboxing solution that doesn't require Security Scoped Bookmarks, as we've run into several issues using them in real world applications.

I've been through several different workarounds and the latest seems to be the easiest.

Basically it involves supporting Lion's Persistence/Resume functionality in your application, I've created a feedback report requesting that RS add support for this functionality as it will make it much easier for anyone who is developing an application for the Mac App Store.

feedback://showreport?report_id=16139

The key thing is to use the encode/decode methods and to store a NSURL object in the encoder, this causes the access to be preserved through application re-starts. It can currently be done via the MBS plugin or via declares, but it messes with the existing RS application delegate and not only causes events to be lost, but can also lead to crashes.

If you're developing apps for the Mac App Store, please add support for this function.

Which is why I'm bringing it everyone's attention, so that RS/Xojo know how important it is to us MAS developers. As Xojo isn't yet on the Mac App Store, they've not yet had to go through what we've gone through.

Thanks, Christian has been helping me by adding functions to his plugin to help.

Hi Sam, thanks to your work, our RealBasic/RealStudio/Xojo app was approved yesterday (sandboxed and all) https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/quick-pallet-maker/id580817858?mt=12

Thanks also for allowing one to test AppWrapper and make sure it does the job before purchasing (which I recommend as an investment to anybody wanting to sell a paid app in the MAS)

You're most welcome and congratulations in getting your application approved :)
