If running the jBASE installer then you will be able to enter the license keys during installation.

To upgrade an existing licensed system use the jInstallKey command with a Standard or Evaluation license key.

Note: you may have to be root/administrator as the permissions to the system.properties file (e.g. the file that contains the license keys) is typically read-only.

All commands must be entered from an Operating System shell.

To install a System license key:

. /opt/jbase/CurrentVersion/src/jbase_env.sh       [Linux]
%JBCRELEASEDIR%\jbase_env.cmd                      [Windows]
jInstallKey -s <key>
jLicenseUpgrade -r

To install an Evaluation license key:

. /opt/jbase/CurrentVersion/src/jbase_env.sh       [Linux]
%JBCRELEASEDIR%\jbase_env.cmd                      [Windows]
jInstallKey -e <key>
jLicenseUpgrade -r

Once the system is licensed, use the jLicenseUpgrade command to add or update Multisession or Websession licensing.

# Examples

jLicenseUpgrade -add -multisession <key>
jLicenseUpgrade -update -multisession <key>

Use the jlicensinginfo to verify that the license details are correct.

# Note

Manually editing the system.properties file is strongly discouraged.
