Dear all,

I would like to develop a licensing software for providing three types of licenses, demo, trial and customer. Could anybody give an idea of how to start with. I have developed the product(internet cafe software) using VB as well as java. Can I use java for implementing licensing in both the cases.

Thanks in advance,

regards
veena

Hi,

I posted this question after doing some search in the API. In my knowledge, I feel there are no classes available for the same. Could anybody give some input to this topic.

thanks and regards

THIS THREAD touches on some of the challenges in doing bullet-proof license enforcement. If you want to invest some effort to stop relatively honest people from cheating, I think you're on your own to build a scheme. Google for "java installer" and see if any of them have licensing features.
