Note that these libraries also make use of other open source libraries - those are not listed here.
The Simple Logging Façade for Java (SLF4J) acts as a straightforward façade or abstraction layer for diverse logging frameworks (such as java.util.logging, logback, log4j). This empowers users to integrate their preferred logging framework during deployment. This integration permits end users to tailor the SDK's logging to their specific requirements.
We employ Netflix's OpenFeign library to interact with the remote HTTP server. Additionally, we utilize the bundled OkHttp3 client, included with the OpenFeign library, contributing to cleaner and more organized code.
Utilizing Google's JSON serializer, the Java SDK maintains uniform naming within Java classes while adhering to the server-side snake-case JSON convention. This approach ensures efficient data compatibility between the SDK and server components.
Bouncy Castle, an open-source cryptography library, plays a pivotal role in ensuring secure communication with LicenseSpring servers. This involves comprehensive utilization for generating and verifying signatures, contributing to a secure and reliable data exchange.
OSHI, which stands for Operating System and Hardware Information, is a versatile cross-platform library employed for acquiring essential system information. With OSHI, you can retrieve comprehensive data regarding operating systems and hardware components, enhancing your understanding of system configurations.
Lombok is a convenient library designed to eliminate repetitive boilerplate code in Java. It generates getters, setters, and the builder pattern, simplifying the creation of value objects (immutable structures). By offering a neat and intuitive interface for API interaction, Lombok enhances the SDK user experience. It's important to note that the library dependency isn't included in the final output binaries.
