Server Licenses are perfect for companies who have one or more mission critical servers running Java applications.
Each license can be used to run one or more applications on a specific server.
Many software development and consulting companies make use of Server Licenses when installing software in their customer's servers.
For package software or in cases where the number of servers is large, we recommend a Development License.
Server License Agreement Overview
This license agreement allows you to use the Java Service Wrapper on a single physical/virtual server or workstation.
The license key is tied to a specific HostId
which is based on a particular network adapter.
Multiple instances of the Wrapper can be run for different applications on a physical/virtual server or workstation.
Acceptance of this License Agreement is implied by download and use of the Java Service Wrapper with a server license key.
When you purchase a Server License, it includes one year of FREE upgrades, e-mail support
all this while your License's Upgrade Term is active.
In addition, one free license key reset is assigned, which can be
used anytime whenever the HostId of your single physical/virtual server or workstation ever changes.
One Server License is required for every single physical/virtual server or workstation, and allows for the
generation of a single License Key.
The range of use on this license is tied to a specific machine with a HostId.
The HostId of a given server can be obtained by running the Wrapper binary with the
wrapper -h parameter from within a shell or command prompt.
Multiple instances of the Wrapper can be run for different applications on a single physical/virtual server or workstation.
License Upgrade Term:
There is NO end-date which will ever cause the Wrapper to stop running.
The License's Upgrade Term defines the term during which the license will allow
for free upgrades to new versions of the Wrapper and receive email support.
Additional one-year Version Upgrades of the Wrapper will be available by renewing the Upgrade Term.
This will also allow to keep receiving email support and receive one 1 free License Key Reset,
which can be used any time prior to the end of the Upgrade Term.
Once the Upgrade Term has been expired, it's no longer possible to upgrade to
new versions of Wrapper nor receive email support.
However, any versions of Wrapper which had been released before the end of the Upgrade Term will be authorized by the License Key.
A "Trial License" contains an additional "Lease Term"
which will cause the Wrapper to stop working once the Lease Term has been expired.
Purchased server licenses do NOT have such a lease term.
Purchase New License
Upgrade Term Renewal
A Standard or Professional Edition of the Wrapper is required to be activated by a License Key.
Once activated, the License Keys allow the Wrapper to be run indefinitely as there
is NO end-date which will ever cause the Wrapper to stop running.
Server License Keys are each tied to a HostId that is unique for a particular network adapter.
From your License Management you can purchase New Licenses, renew the Upgrade Term, and generate License Keys.
Please visit the Server License Management Page.
License Key Resets
Occasionally you may need to migrate your Server License to another server in the event of a hardware upgrade or failure.
In this case the license key for a specific Server License must be reset.
This will allow you to generate a new License Key for your
new server or new HostId,
but also terminates your right to continue using the old License Key.
As part of the process, you must agree to destroy all copies of the old License Key.
It is possible to reset your server license key(s) using an available Reset Credit
on the Server License Management Page.
For convenience, each Server License purchased includes a single Free License Key Reset,
which can be used any time prior to the end of the Upgrade Term.
Where multiple Server Licenses are owned, License Key Reset(s) are held in a pool
which allows you to decide when and where they are used amongst all of your Licenses.
If you already used your single Free License Key Reset, it is possible to purchase
additional Reset Credits.
Please note that Reset Credits can only be used to reset license keys which
Upgrade Terms are active.
When the Upgrade Term is renewed, it includes 1 free license key reset and
will allow you to reset the license key for the specific Server License.

Section 5 - Warranty and Limited Liability
Software Warranty: TSI warrants that, for a period of ninety (90) days
from the initial delivery of the Software Program to Licensee, the
Software Program, if used by Licensee in accordance with the
Documentation, shall operate in material conformity with the
Documentation for such Software Program. TSI does not warrant that the
Software Program will meet all of Licensee requirements or that the
use of the Software Program will be uninterrupted or error free. TSI's
entire liability, and Licensee exclusive remedy, under this limited
Software Warranty shall be for TSI (i) to attempt, through reasonable
efforts, to correct any reproducible material nonconformity discovered
within the ninety (90) day warranty period; or (ii) to replace the
nonconforming Software Program with Software Program which conforms to
the foregoing warranty. In the event TSI is unable to cure the breach
of warranty described in this Section 6, after attempting the remedies
described in (i) and (ii) above, Licensee may return the Software
Program and TSI shall refund any license and upgrade fees paid by
Licensee to TSI for the Software Program provided the refund of
upgrade fees shall be limited to the amount representing the period
during which the Software Program showed nonconformity. The above
remedies are available only if TSI is promptly notified in writing,
within the warranty period, upon discovery of the nonconformity by
Licensee and TSI's examination of the Software Program discloses that
such nonconformity exists, and that the Software Program has not been
(i) altered or modified, other than by TSI, (ii) subjected to
negligence, or computer or electrical malfunctions, or (iii) used,
adjusted, or installed other than in accordance with the
Disclaimer: THE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTIES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE
EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR
STATUTORY WITH RESPECT TO THE SOFTWARE PROGRAM, AND TSI EXPRESSLY
DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION,
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Limitation of Liability: IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY'S LIABILITY
ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT
EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID OR DUE TO TSI HEREUNDER DURING A FULL YEAR

THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY CAUSE OF ACTION, WHETHER OR NOT THE OTHER
PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. NO ACTION
MAY BE BROUGHT AGAINST TSI LATER THAN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF
ACTION OCCURRED. EXCEPT FOR CLAIMS MADE UNDER SECTION 6
(INDEMNIFICATION), IN NO EVENT SHALL TSI BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMS,
DEMANDS OR ACTIONS OF ANY NATURE BROUGHT BY ANY THIRD PARTY AGAINST

warranty set forth in this Section 5, shall be made in writing and
delivered to TSI by the end of the applicable warranty period, and
Licensee shall provide TSI a reproducible test case, if applicable,
demonstrating the breach of warranty.
Section 6 - Indemnification
TSI warrants that the use or distribution of unaltered Software
Program(s), or the exercise of the licenses granted hereunder, will
not infringe any copyright or patent, or other intellectual property
rights of any third party, and TSI has all rights necessary for the
grant of the rights and licenses granted by this Agreement. TSI agrees
to indemnify, defend and hold Licensee harmless from any and all
actions, causes of action, claims, demands, reasonable costs,
liabilities, reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorney's
fees) and damages (collectively, a "Loss" or "Losses") arising from
any claim that the Software Program infringes any copyright or patent,
or other intellectual property right of a third party, provided,
(1) Licensee shall promptly deliver to TSI notice in writing of any
infringement claim made by a third party, and, if known, specify
in reasonable detail the nature of the claim and the amount, or an
estimate of the amount, of the liability arising therefrom.
Licensee shall, at TSI's expense, provide to TSI as promptly as
practicable thereafter information and documentation reasonably
requested by TSI to support and verify the claim asserted,
provided that, in so doing, TSI may restrict or condition any
disclosure in the interest of preserving privileges of importance
in any foreseeable litigation.
(2) TSI may assume and retain sole control of the investigation, the
defense or the settlement of any third party infringement claim
made against Licensee or TSI with respect to the Software Program,
including the employment of counsel or accountants, at its cost
and expense. Licensee shall have the right to employ counsel
separate from counsel employed by TSI in any such action and to
participate therein, but the fees and expenses of such counsel
employed by Licensee shall be at Licensee expense. TSI shall have
the right to determine and adopt (or, in the case of a proposal by
Licensee, to approve) a settlement of such matter in its
reasonable discretion. TSI shall not be liable for any settlement
of any claim effected without its prior written consent, which
shall not be unreasonably withheld. Whether or not TSI chooses to
so investigate or defend such claim, Licensee shall cooperate with
TSI in the defense thereof and shall furnish such records,
information and testimony, and attend such conferences, discovery
proceedings, hearings, trials and appeals, as may be reasonably
requested by TSI in connection therewith.
(3) If such a claim arises, or in either party's judgment is likely to
arise, Licensee agrees to allow TSI, at TSI's option, to either
(i) procure the right to permit the continued exercise of the
rights and licenses in the Software Program granted under this
Agreement; (ii) replace or modify the Software Program so it
be-comes non-infringing, while affording equivalent performance;
or (iii) terminate the license for the infringing Software Program
and upon return thereof by Licensee, refund the unearned portion
of any license fees paid by Licensee for the remainder of the
current term hereof.
(4) TSI shall have no indemnity obligation for claims of infringement
resulting from any combination, operation or use of the Software
Program, or any components thereof, with any software programs or
data not supplied by TSI if such infringement would have been
avoided by use of the Software Program alone. Licensee
acknowledges and agrees that these four items are the exclusive
remedy of Licensee for damages for breach of warranty or
representations contained in this Section 6.
Section 7 - Termination
Should either party commit a material breach of its obligations
hereunder, the other party may, at its option, terminate this
Agreement by written notice to the party in default. Such notice
shall identify and describe the default upon which termination is
based. The defaulting party shall have thirty (30) days from the
effective delivery of the notice to cure such default, which, if
effected, shall prevent termination by virtue of such default. Should
an insolvency proceeding is filed by or against either party, the
other party may terminate this Agreement forthwith by giving a written
notice to the first party. Upon termination of this Agreement, the
Licensee will either return to TSI or destroy all copies of the
Software Program, License File and documentation then in your
possession. The Licensee shall, within thirty (30) days after the
date of such termination furnish TSI with a certificate of compliance
in accordance with this Section. The parties agree that TSI shall
have the right to enforce the obligations arising under this Section
and to enjoin or compel the Licensee through injunctive relief.
Section 8 - Export Controls
Licensee shall comply with, and ensure that Licensee sublicensees and
resellers comply with, all applicable laws, regulations, rulings and
executive orders of Japan or any other relevant jurisdiction relating
to the export and re-export of the Software Program or any products
containing the Software Program. Licensee shall not directly or
indirectly export or re-export the Software Program unless Licensee
have obtained a license to do so if such a license is required.
Licensee further agree that Licensee take appropriate measure to
ensure that the Software Program will not be exported or re-exported
in violation of any applicable laws or regulations of any relevant
Section 9 - Entire Agreement
This Agreement, including any attachments, constitutes the entire
agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and
supersedes all prior agreements, both oral and written,
representations, statements, negotiations and undertakings, with
respect to the subject matter hereof, which such agreements,
representations, statements, negotiations and undertakings are merged
herein. No amendment or modification of this Agreement or any
provision or attachment of this Agreement shall be effective unless it
is in writing and signed by both parties.
Section 10 - Governing Law
The validity, construction and performance of this Agreement shall be
governed by the substantive laws of Japan (excluding conflicts of law
principles). Licensee and TSI agree that any dispute arising out of
this Agreement shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the
Tokyo District Court of Japan. If any legal action is undertaken to
enforce the terms of this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be
entitled to reasonable attorney's fees and costs in addition to any
other relief to which that party may be entitled.
Licensee agrees that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for
the International Sales of Goods will not apply to this Agreement.
Section 11 - Assignment and Benefit
Without the consent of the other party in writing, neither party may
assign this Agreement; provided, however, TSI or Licensee may assign
this Agreement to a wholly-owned subsidiary of the respective
corporation or a corporation in which the shareholders of the
respective corporation own a majority interest of the voting control
provided that the assigning party remains obligated hereunder; further

responsible for all taxes (including, but not limited to, taxes based
upon its income) or levies imposed on it under applicable laws,
regulations and tax treaties as a result of this Agreement. In the
event that a withholding tax is payable, and the Licensee is required

required under applicable laws, regulations and tax treaties, the
Licensee agrees to furnish evidence of such paid taxes to the Licensor
as is sufficient to enable the Licensor to obtain any tax credits
available to it. Such evidence must be translated into English or
Japanese and be provided with the original, unless approved by the
Licensor in writing.
