You may need to run the Elastic COBOL Eclipse Plug-in, the Elastic Transaction Processor or the Elastic Batch Platform (Job Entry Subsystem) from a secure location that has no Internet connection. Or, you may distribute a COBOL application program with a multi-user license to sites that are behind a firewall. Heirloom Computing, Inc. requires that you (or your customers) still "check" the license from the production machine and we have created a "proxy checking process" as part of our License-as-a-Service offering.
See the documentation under Licensing as a Service Forum describing the proxy license checking process article . An example of how this is done, complete with videos, is shown in the End-to-End Licensing Process article.
The license checking utility HCILicensing.jar is available for download from:
Download the most recent version .zip file and unzip it into HCILicensing.jar. To determine if your current "elasticcobol.properties" license file contains valid information, use
java -jar HCILicensing.jar -l -p hcecbleditor # the Elastic COBOL IDE license
java -jar HCILicensing.jar -l -p hcjes # the Elastic Batch Platform license
java -jar HCILicensing.jar -l -p hcecblrts # the Elastic COBOL runtime license
This will generate output such as:
