comment Why/how does Java use a controlled mechanism to pause threads for GC?
@kdgregory: Ok, I think that's what I was looking for. Now, if you could just change this into an answer I could give you some points :-).

I understand this. However, what I would like to understand is why Java uses the described mechanism, and doesn't just put the threads to sleep.

I'd like to know because I'm writing a JIT and GC for a hoby project. Anyway, this means that the advantage would be that you don't have to keep all pointers on the stack and you can temporarily keep them just in registers. Is that a fair conclusion?

comment How can I reverse engineer a hash code?
@PetrAbdulin Thank you for your feedback. I was able to extract the algorithm and it's now available at github.com/pvginkel/ProgressEncode.

comment How can I reverse engineer a hash code?
@CodesInChaos: You are absolutely right that this is quite a horrible situation, but the whole point of the question is that I need this to be compatible. I'll probably migrate to SHA1, but for now I'm looking for compatibility.

That's kind of my question: how does one go about figuring out what algorithm they are using.

This does sound like a start of a process that I'm looking for. I'm just wondering where to go from there. Can you give some suggestions on a structered approach on actually working out the algorithm?

See the comment from @Petr. This probably won't work because even Progress themselves stated that it's a non standard hash function.

comment How do I trust an off site application
One suggestion I would like to add myself which builds on the automatic updates is that in the communication with the server, something could be done with the currently installed version, requiring the latest version to be installed. This again would make it much more cumbersome to keep everything operational which was mostly the point of my question.

I'm not actually looking for a 100% secure solution. As I said, there is a trust relationship with our customers. The suggestions given by MainMa are actually quite good and I think they offer enough protection for my situation.

comment How do I trust an off site application
Thank you for your response. Your suggestions are very helpful. However, I was wondering about the signed key. Yes, the assemblies are signed and I already though about using this for some validations. However, I do not understand why the key should have a password. Could you elaborate a bit about that?
