License4J Library Integration Quick Start

There are two quick start application example in examples folder. "example10" folder includes a Netbeans project (LICENSE4J-QuickStartLicensing-Example2). This example has a single main frame and a licensing jdialog to display license information. There are comment blocks in source, follow comments and copy licensing gui (customize as you like). In this video tutorial, quick start example is used and licensing is added to a small Java application in less than 15 minutes.

Another sample quick start application can be found in "example5" folder; it can be used to easily integrate licensing into any Java Swing software. It includes license information and license input dialogs with a general license load/save helper class. It can be directly used as a library or modified/customized for integration.

Quick start integration example performs the following licensing tasks.

"example6" folder is a single class application which includes quick start example jar file as a library. There is a single JFrame as application main and all license actions are integrated with just a few method calls.

                System.getProperty("user.home") + File.separator + "sample-app-license-file.lic",
                // public key
                + "072a8648ce3d02002EC311215SHA512withECDSA106052b81040006031e0"

                // a trial license key
                // since trial license key is given, this must be null
                // this is internal string for license keys
                // this the product id
                // activation server is null, so we use Online.License4J

         * Initialize LicenseInformationGUI, and run check method. GUI will not
         * be displayed if there is a valid license.
        LicenseInformationGUI gui = new LicenseInformationGUI(null, true, productLicense);
        boolean ok = gui.check();

         * If gui.check() method returns true, it means there is a valid
         * license, so start your main frame.
        if (ok) {
            /* Create and display the form */
            java.awt.EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                public void run() {
                    new MainJFrame().setVisible(true);
