Need to lock my java application to single system

Hi all

I have to run my application only in single system, if i install my java application in one PC no body should copy the jar and run in the another PC.

So i planned to lock on the hardware details, for example we can take the MAC Address of the NIC and we will store that while installing. if any one copied that jar to other system we can the hardware is matching or not.

So i need to know how to get the hardware details from java code.

if any other way to do this please guide me.

thanks in advance
