Licensing

JxBrowser is a commercial library that requires a valid license key in order to work. This guide focuses on technical aspects of working with the licenses.

For pricing information and details on terms and conditions please see the Licensing and Pricing section at the product page of our main website.

Adding the License to a Project

JxBrowser needs a license key, which represents a string with combination of letters and digits. The key must be provided to the library using one of the following ways.

You can provide the key via the jxbrowser.license.key System Property. For example:

System.setProperty("jxbrowser.license.key", "your_license_key");

Only one license key could be configured through this system property. It is possible to use separate license keys for different Engine instances:

Engine engine = Engine.newInstance(
        EngineOptions.newBuilder(HARDWARE_ACCELERATED)
                .licenseKey("your_license_key")
                .build());

Setting the license key through the API allows you to override the license key specified in the jxbrowser.license.key System Property.

Commercial Licenses

When you purchase a commercial license, we will send you an email with a license key.

You can use this license key both for development of your application with JxBrowser, and for distribution of our library as part of your software.

This license is issued to a person.

It includes a 1 year of Standard Support subscription which includes product updates and technical support.

You can work with the created Engine instance and make calls to the library’s API in other packages without any restrictions.

The package name is expected to be in the com.company.product.module format.

Trial Period

You can try JxBrowser for free for a 30-day trial period.

To start your free trial, please fill web form. You will receive an email message with your personal trial license key and a quick start guide.

Your free 30-day trial period is over.
When your trial period is over, JxBrowser stops working. If you request one more 30-day trial key, it will not work in the environments where you already tried JxBrowser for more than 30 days.

Please consider buying a commercial license to continue using JxBrowser in this case.

Extended Trial Period

There might be cases when your company’s procurement procedures take longer than 30 days. If you need more time to finalize the purchase formalities, please contact our Sales team at sales@teamdev.com with brief details of your situation.

Chromium Open-Source Components’ Licenses

JxBrowser is based on the open-source Chromium project that includes the source code and libraries written by developers in the Chromium community. The project also includes a number of open-source third-party libraries.

JxBrowser is using Blink, FFmpeg, libsecret, and Wayland Protocols KDE components, supplied under LGPL. Learn more about JxBrowser Compliance with LGPL.

One of the key questions arising when an open-source code is used in commercial products, is the permitted use of the open-source code, and possible restrictions of use and distribution of the works based on this open-source code.

We are performing a regular review of the licenses, associated with the Chromium components used by JxBrowser, to make sure that there are no terms that would restrict the commercial distribution of JxBrowser or the customer applications using it. We also make sure that licenses requiring disclosure of the source code (like GPL) do not apply to JxBrowser or applications based on it.

Please see below the links to Chromium components’ licenses associated with JxBrowser releases:
