Hello Team,

we have written an RCP using eclipse which has lot of patented and
secret algoritham. we would like to have licencing feature in RCP.

Is there any good licencing mechanism availbale for RCP. we implemented
simple XOR algorigham and this algoritham checks the MAC addres of the PC
and then start the application. But problme is , user decompiles the code
and comment our function which does the validation run the tool :(-

Please give us a good method of licencing the tool. THank you very much in
advance.

The question is - what do you protect? Your algorithms or your licensing
scheme?

It is very difficult to properly protect Java applications.
Even using license checks in native code can be hacked.

Nevertheless, there are some obfuscation tools that will minimize risks.
