License chaining

If the policy used to generate the license supports license chaining, the server must decide whether to issue a Leaf license, Root license, or both. To determine what type of license chaining a policy supports, use Policy.getLicenseChainType(), or call Policy.getRootLicenseId() to determine if the policy has a root license. With Adobe Access 2.0 license chaining, the server typically issues a leaf license the first time the user requests a license for a particular machine and a root license thereafter. To determine if the machine already has a leaf license for the specified policy, call LicenseRequestMessage.clientHasLeafForPolicy().
