Developers Everywhere Are Talking

“GREAT! … When a method using POST KEY needed 2 or 3 _hours_, (to update
methods) DynamicStructure does the same in less than one minute… Amazing!”

DynamicStructure Licensing

DynamicStructure contains separate provisions for development (running a
database interpretted) and deployment (running a database compiled)

The spirit of the development license is thus: “one license per developer
per platform”. This means that if your company employs seven (7)
developers, and that those seven developers all use the DynamicStructure
plugin, then your company is obligated to purchase seven (7) developer
licenses. This means too that a developer can use the DynamicStructure
plugin on different machines: his computer at his office, his laptop,
etc…. We hold this true since at one time, the developer is still the
only one using the DynamicStructure plugin. For companies with multiple
developers, additional developer licenses can be purchased at 50% off the
initial developer license purchase price.

This development license is per platform, though. Meaning, if the developer
does development on Macintosh (considering MacOS 8/9 and MacOS X the same
for this licensing), then a development license for a single platform is
all that is needed. If development is to be done on both Macintosh and
Windows, a cross-platform development license must be purchase. But, fear
not, the cross-platform development license only costs 50% more than the
single platform development license.

Deployment licenses should be counted as one license for each CPU the
DynamicStructure plugin is to be used on. Deployment licenses are not
platform specific. Rather, a counting of the total number of machines
running the DynamicStructure plugin is the end number of deployment
licenses needed.

Each developer license purchase includes ten (10) deployment licenses. And,
additional deployment licenses can be purchased at a reduced price. So, for
low volume and individual consultants, and in-house developers, a single
developer license will often suffice for all needs. Deployment only becomes
an issue for vertical market applications, large client/server
installations, and other distributed applications utilizing the
DynamicStructure plugin.

For vertical market applications, counting the number of installations can
become overly burdensome. Licensing for such situations can also be
purchased for unlimited deployment within a single application. Unlimited
deployment licensing within a single application is based on either a
single platform application (Macintosh or Windows) or for both platforms
(Macintosh and Windows).

Neither development nor deployment licenses ever expire!
