grid computing; licence management

Licence Management is currently not supported in any Grid middleware. Since most small and medium enterprises (SME) use commercial codes with associated licensing issues, this lack of support is becoming a major obstacle for the commercial exploitation of these middleware and the corresponding Grid infrastructure. In this paper we discuss the process of eliciting licence management related requirements, the subsequently derived common components and their corresponding design patterns as well as details of implementation patterns. In order to cover the entire licence management process, a complete Grid-friendly licence architecture was implemented.
