I have been waiting for Web 2.0 for a long time, as I want to develop an ERP that runs in the browser, but seeing the bad opinion of many Xojo users, I am evaluating other options like Wisej (https://wisej.com/)
You need 1 Server License for each additional deployment. For example, if you have 3 developers and need to deploy on 10 servers, you need to purchase 3 Developer Licenses and 7 Server Licenses (7 because the 3 Developer Licenses include 1 free Server License each).
No one said that should be free. BUT charging for each server you deploy to… that looks hidden and it can escalate very fast.
In consulting, are you going to charge the client for the licence needed to run the software in its server? All your apps are going to work fine in only one server or are you going to pay for each extra server (phisical or each instance of a VPS)?
Upgrading the tool, you will need to also update the servers and pay again for each one of them, (unles you keep working with the old tool)
Each server needs a license. Seems to be a pretty straight forward concept. Unless you are a hobbyist, it’s quite common in the enterprise world. And yes it can escalate, it’s a simple multiplication, just like any other server side license sold by most companies that build server side software.
