In response to numerous requests for more flexible licensing to test DataFlex web applications, we are pleased to announce enhancements to the terms of the DataFlex Software License Agreement (SLA). The section of the agreement that defines DataFlex WebApp Server testing use has been modified as follows:

The server included with the DataFlex Studio license is now called the DataFlex WebApp Testing Server.
Solely for testing use, developers with a Studio license are entitled to install the Testing Server on an application tester accessible Server Instance (physical server or virtual machine).
The number of application testers that access the Testing Server is not restricted.
Production use of the Testing Server is prohibited.

The above is an informal summary. As always, the SLA defines the precise entitlements, terms, conditions and use of the DataFlex WebApp Testing Server.

The enhanced DataFlex WebApp Testing Server entitlements will be available to customers with Visual DataFlex 17.1 Studio licenses. An update to 17.1 that includes the enhanced SLA will be published in the next few days. The Testing Server enhanced SLA will be the "click-to-accept" license presented during the installation of the update. When the installation is complete, the new license applies and you may use the Testing Server according to more flexible license entitlements. DataFlex 2014/18.0 and future revisions will continue similar testing license flexibilities.

The attached document shows a side-by-side comparison of the old and new SLA section hat refers to the Testing Server.

That's quite a huge something! Is that a 10+ Application server we're talking about. That's a lot of power to play with.

Applause from me

Thanks Dave.

But... based on your message footer, you don't need a Testing License, right?
