Durban, South Africa (PressExposure) December 18, 2007 -- Anyone developing commercial applications knows the dangers of piracy. It costs you money. The only solution is to have a robust licensing engine upon which you can rely. A commercial software developer requires efficient management of the licensing aspect. Typically a developer looks for a solution that is secure, reliable, flexible and yet easy to implement.
Lead software engineer at Jigsaw Software, Andre Oosthuizen says 'we have developed quite a few Eclipse RCP based products and always struggled with how to manage the technical licensing aspect. Our attempts at successful license management integration with our products were fairly poor until we made a decision to produce something which was robust, sustainable and easy for internal developers to implement. It became apparent that other developers were encountering this same problem so we focussed on making the code available as a fully fledged product."
According to SD Times - [http://www.sdtimes.com/article/story-20070115-03.html] - "Two-thirds of enterprise software developersâ66.3 percentâuse Eclipse". As a growing and dominant environment it makes sense that there is a reliable licensing engine for the commercial software that is built on this platform.
Jigsaw Software is a Durban, South Africa based software development company specializing in Eclipse based solutions. The company won the 2006 Eclipse Community award for "Best Deployment of Eclipse technology in an enterprise"
