Increased flexibility with licensing for testing DataFlex web applications

Updated on 2015Nov09

Data Access Worldwide have responded to customer requests for more flexible licensing to test DataFlex web applications and have updated the terms of the Visual DataFlex Software Licence 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 licence is now called the DataFlex WebApp Testing Server.
  • Solely for testing use, developers with a Studio licence 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 enhanced DataFlex WebApp Testing Server entitlements will be available to customers with Visual DataFlex 17.1 Studio licences. The Testing Server enhanced SLA will be the "click-to-accept" licence presented during the installation of the update. When the installation is complete, the new licence is applied and you may use the Testing Server according to more flexible licence entitlements.
