Code-signing a Mac App

Hello Respected Experts,

I recently wrote a Mac application that tested and works great, but I’m spending an inordinate amount of time attempting to upload the darn thing to the App Store.
My problem seems to be that I am unable to code-sign the application.

The command I’m using is:

/usr/bin/codesign –s “Mac Developer: Ernest Zore (XXXXXXXXXX)” –f “/Users/ezore/RADPAServer/scratch-dir/Ernie-MyMac/w1041_13.app”

The error I receive is:
/Users/ezore/RADPAServer/scratch-dir/Ernie-MyMac/w1041_13.app: code object is not signed at all
In subcomponent: /Users/ezore/RADPAServer/scratch-dir/Ernie-MyMac/w1041_13.app/Contents/Entitlements.plist

I’ve read as much as I could find about this issue. I am a member of the Mac Developers program and I believe I’ve got the proper certificates installed, i.e. Mac Developer, 3rd Party Mac Developer Application, and 3rd Party Mac Developer Installer. I’ve also got what I think are correct info.plist and entitlements.plist files incorporated in the app folder.

The entitlements file which seems to be the problem is below in its entirety:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
      <key>com.apple.security.network.client</key>
      <true/>
      <key>com.apple.security.files.user-selected.read-write</key>
      <true/>
</dict>
</plist>

I’ve tried a hundred (no exaggeration) varied ways to get this app code-signed to the point where I’m stumped as to what to try next. I’m genuinely grateful for any help you can give me.

If it makes a difference, perhaps I should mention that I am using Mac Mavericks.

I guess posting this question was good luck. After hours of research, I stumbled on this resolution. Use codesign's --deep option. Here's where I found the answer:
