Hi All,
I need to develop licensing framework component using Java, that could be plugged into any of the web application to evaluate the license details
which could be based on the hardware ( # of processors, physical machines ) or number of users.
So basically should be able to generate a license file for my application depending upon the above factors and validate it.

Appreciate if you guys could give me some pointers on how to go about this with any reference material would be highly appreciated

[since this is a custom one, i prefer not to use any exisiting opensource/commerical available licensing softwares.]

thanks in advance.

What is this licencing? A client's ability to use a web application or whether the application can be run on a server?

Pravin,
Also, why don't you want to use an open source framework? Do you think yours will be better than someone who spent a lot of time on it?

Not that i am against it, ( I do appreciate the ethics of Opensource), this task that i am into is for one of our clients who are sceptical about open source.
I have a basic idea that i can record the MAC address for licensing. Any pointers is much appreciated

Sounds like a good opportunity to convince someone otherwise...

I tried searching for available open source works and ended up with the following url

http://sourceforge.net/projects/licensemanager/files/

which does not give any idea about the usage or implementation

No wonder, since the page states that the project is still in the planning stages. Check out TrueLicense and license4j instead.
