Creating a DRM policy with the Java API

To create a DRM policy with the Java API:

  1. Set up your development environment and include in your project all of the JAR files listed in Set up your development environment..

  2. Create a com.adobe.flashaccess.sdk.policy.Policy object and specify its properties, including the rights, license caching duration, and DRM policy end date.

    // Create a new DRM policy object.
    // False indicates the DRM policy does not use license chaining.
    Policy policy = new Policy(false);
    // Specify that the DRM policy requires authentication to obtain a license.
    policy.setLicenseServerInfo(new LicenseServerInfo(AuthenticationType.UsernamePassword));
    // A DRM policy must have at least one Right, typically the play right
    PlayRight play = new PlayRight();
    // Users can only view content for 24 hours.
    play.setPlaybackWindow(24L * 60 * 60);
    // Add the play right to the DRM policy.
    List<Right> rightsList = new ArrayList<Right>();
    // Licenses can be stored on the client for 7 days after downloading
    policy.setLicenseCachingDuration(7L * 24 * 60 * 60);
    try {
        // Content will expire December 31, 2010
        SimpleDateFormat dateFormat = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd");
    } catch (ParseException e) {
        // Invalid date specified in dateFormat.parse()
  3. Serialize the DRM Policy object and store it in a file or database.

    // Serialize the DRM policy
    byte[] policyBytes = policy.getBytes();
    System.out.println("Created DRM policy with ID: " + policy.getId());
    // Write the DRM policy to a file.
    // Alternatively, the DRM policy may be stored in a database.
    FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream("demopolicy.pol");

See com.adobe.flashaccess.samples.policy.CreatePolicy in the Reference Implementation Command Line Tools samples directory for the complete source of this sample code.
