We have a special OEM edition (available only to OEM
customers upon specific request to sales dept) that can
be activated by two licenses: it operates as Trial when
a trial license is supplied, and switches to unstamped
mode when presented a special unlocking license.
However, this edition is meant for environments
where XEP is incorporated into applications that
share the same code for trial and full versions: the user
tries the application in stamped mode, and receives
the unlocking license upon purchase of a full version.
Yours seem to be a different situation. If I understand
it correctly, you don't need to switch XEP operation mode
in applications installed at your customers' sites. In this
case, it is recommended to seek a solution within
the current licensing scheme.

Sorry, I don't understand that. In any case, you will have
to include a different license in your build; having a different
JAR file does not seem to complicate things too much.
After all, you can simply rename XEP's JARs to some
uniform names before you start building process,
by running a single-line script.

Let me express my personal opinion as a SW developer,
and not as a RenderX employee: the solution consists
in adopting a better build system, not in simplifying the
components to match the capabilities of your current one.
