Hi guys,

I've been asked to look into licensing our Java Application and wondered if anyone had any recommendations?

Currently we are looking into using our exisiting FlexLM licensing which is written in C++. So this would involve wrapping up the code using JNI but my next concern is would this licensing then only work on Windows platforms?

Thanks in advance for all your help!!!

No, JNI works on all platforms. However you would have to write a separate JNI interface for each platform that FlexLM supports. And if FlexLM only supports Windows (which it sort of looks like from my 15 seconds on Macrovision's website), then naturally it follows that you could only target Windows.

Hi guys for the time being I have used a JNI wrapper to incorperate the existing C++ code to use FlexLM. However I would be grateful for any further ideas as currently FlexLM restricts us to the Windows platform which kind of defeats the whole point of writing a multi-platform application in Java!

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
