Do you need an end user runtime licence for Java Toolkit?
for the user that uses the written app, not the developer, just to be clear.
the reason is that i would like to buy (as a private person) a small-ish j-toolkit script that would help me with my work, as my company doesn't want to pay for it (for all users in that case).
Is that lic included by default in a standard creo installation by any chance?
i don't know the actual names, but i work on 2 computers, depending on location. one has also mechanica, UDF... (a lot more features), the other has only the basic "drafing licence"? i would need it only on either one of them.
There are 2 type of license available with Java.
2. Java Object Toolkit
Can it be unlocked on another machine or only at the end user? maybe i could persuade the VAR to deploy it once they deploy Creo 3 (or 4)...
By object toolkit licence you mean the Developer licence (mentioned in the above video for example)? because the company definitely doesn't have that.
It can unlocked in developer machine which contains license. after unlocked the application you can use the application at user end.
It depends on the CREO version which the develper license version. If developer has CREO 3.0 license it should be works on all other system CREO 3.0 version.
As a PTC Technical Support Engineer, I'd like to shed some light on the Java Object Toolkit licensing and set expectations right: a license is required on both developer and runtime side and unlocking has no effect on licensing.

Thank you for your understanding.
This is very disappointing - why is it not the same as object C++ toolkit licensing?
This is a major dis-incentive to using Object toolkit Java
I wonder how take up of OTK Java has been hit by this?
