    Does anyone knows any OpenSource Licensing Framework..the framework that helps in providing licensing features in home grown application such as time trail/evaluation versions/generating unique license Ids etc.

    There are not many licensing frameworks under open source because that just goes against the "openess".

    (1) FLEXlm is the most widely used license generator. Its not free.

    (2) JProductivity has Protection (not free)

    (3) There is also SourceTap License Manager. This is free.

    I don't know of such a framework. Is it just me or shouldn't this be overly complicated implementing from scratch? What kind of features are you looking for, could you provide some use-cases to illustrate?
