A new system has been developed for managing software licences. The Licence Payment Management System (LPM) provides a way for users to quickly pay for software using a range of Payment Service Providers including PayPal, Google Checkout and Nochex (more coming soon). The LPM also helps with software delivery via Java Web Start technology.
Payment and licence usage information is maintained in the LPM. Future commercial Java applications will incorporate the LPM plugin which communicates periodically with the LPM to check for licence related updates and messages. The LPM includes duplicate instance detection enabling identification of duplicate copies and licence violations.
