Stopping Java Licensing Theft With Protection! Pro

Stopping Java Licensing Theft With Protection! Pro

jProductivity's Protection! Pro is putting into developers' hands, the ability to create custom licensing rules for Java applications. Building on the features of Protection!, additional features have been added that bind user licenses to specific hardware, create Floating Licenses, and includes Web Services Support.

jProductivity's CEO, Alexander Krivov, spoke of the ways Protection! Pro will serve developers. "Protection! Pro is a highly flexible product that not only makes the licensing process easier but also protects the developer's property with a degree of customization never before available."

The application, according to Krivov, is highly interoperable. "Protection! Pro can be used with any kind of application, through any deployment mechanism, enabling the developer to securely and reliably meet the business requirements of both the buyer and the seller," he stated.

One of the most noted innovations is "named-user" license support. A license can lock itself to a network card MAC address, or other user-defined attribute, preventing intellectual property from being shared.

jProductivity's latest offering can be embedded into any custom Java application. Also, it can be launched from any delivery mechanism, the company said. Now developers are not restricted to any one delivery format, but can choose between CD's, remote method invocation (RMI), and - a first - through Web services.

Web services support gives developers the power to visually specify properties for Protection! Pro Web services applications, including general, plug-in, database options, e-mail, and e-mail templates. A dialogue, Licensing Facade Configuration, can be used with Protection! Pro, and Licensing Wizards are available to handle all technical events.

jProductivity has made using Protection! Pro as simple as possible. Powerful back-end  development support offers a default implementation as a base for easily building custom back-ends that are exported through Web services or RMI. With plug-in support, another feature, users can extend these default implementations.

Developers can track the use of licenses with License Activation Support. This optional requirement lets the publisher "tag" the application during the registration process. This can prove especially useful with evaluation licenses. By providing support during license reading or approval, any issues that arise can be addressed with a Resolver feature.

What is more, a license can be "floated," allowing a single Java application to migrate among concurrent users. And to ensure that its customers are not abruptly cut-off while using a trial application, "grace-period" support has been added that can extend the end date of licensed Java applications.

The application is verified for Windows, Solaris, Linux, and any platform with Java 1.4 .

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
