Creating a license provider that interfaces with the Umbraco store
At codegarden 09 I attended an open space session that discussed the three current package repositories - our.umbraco projects, the Umbraco package repository and the Umbraco store. My action point from this discussion was to write up some information on how to create a license provider that works with the Umbraco store. With this in mind I've released my framework for creating licenses on our.umbraco.org and also created a wiki page which explains how to configure the application.
The application is written around spring.net and is easy to get up and quickly. It is also very flexible allowing you to implement some simple interfaces in several areas of the application where you may want to customise functionality. Integration testing is already completed and my framework already provides licenses for two products in the Umbraco store.
