3. Run Test.java to Verify it Works
Run runTest.sh to verify that Test.java can be compiled and run. The Test.java program simply verifies that the libchilkat.jnilib (a JNI dynamic library) can be loaded, that the Java class loader can load the Chilkat classes from the chilkat.jar, and that a Chilkat object can be instantiated.
Sample code is available at: Chilkat Java Examples.

Chilkat's commercially licensed Java classes are fully-functional for a 30-day trial period. The UnlockBundle method should be called once at the beginning of a program. (See the Unlocking Chilkat examples.) The trial period automatically begins when a non-valid unlock code is used.
Note: The Chilkat Java library contains both freeware and commercially-licensed classes. Each class is noted as freeware or commercial in the online reference documentation.
