Hello,

Just want to check on the licensing.

I am currently contracting for a housing trust which is a charity, I'm writing a small application which will only be used by people in the company. I need a decent asp.net grid view. will I be okay to use the community license for this and if so, will there be any charge at all?

Second Question, when I move on from this contract, as a single developer, what licensing model would be best for me to take up?

Regards

Wayne

Hello Daniil,

Thanks for your quick response.

I did read the Q&As.
In the first part of my question i just wanted to make absolutely sure about the licensing, these are very impressive controls from what i have seen so far and it just seemed a bit odd that something so good can be opensource.

the second part is a bit more complicated, if i buy the licence, then go into a clients office to develop something for them, will they also need to buy the controls, even though no one else will be developing with them.

Regards

Wayne

Well, if following the diagram in Q&A you arrive at the "Community License", you can use it for sure.

The Q&A here should be helpful.

I think this is the answer:

How many licenses do we require? Ext.NET Pro is licensed per developer. Each individual working directly with Ext.NET in an IDE (such as Visual Studio, Visual Web Developer Express or similar) is considered a developer. Each developer is granted the right to install and use Ext.NET Pro on workstations used by that developer for development purposes and to deploy Ext.NET Pro on unlimited domains, sub-domains and servers.
Ext.NET Pro licenses are sold in Packs of One (1), Five (5) and Twenty (20) developer licenses. Each Ext.NET Pro license allows for a single developer to install and use Ext.NET on unlimited workstations for development and to deploy Ext.NET on unlimited domains and sub-domains on unlimited servers.

Very simply...

The Ext.NET Pro License is for closed-source projects. There are no conditions to release your source-code (client or server).

The Ext.NET Community License is for open-source projects. All project source code (client and server) using Ext.NET Community is to be licensed as AGPL.

Hope this helps.
