Developer Editions and Deployment Editions are licensed separately and as a bundled subscription.
This offers developers flexibility and cost-effective ways to license on-demand or on an on-going basis.
Chant components libraries are named and licensed separately for development (i.e., Developer Edition) and deployment (e.g., Deployment Edition). This helps ensure the correct library is deployed with your application and minimizes the cost of licensing the software you need.
For example, if you are an ISV or IT developer working on project for your company, then you may want to license a copy of Developer Edition for your use and license a copy of the appropriate Deployment Edition to deploy with your application.
If you are an ISV or contract developer and work on multiple client projects, then you may want to license a copy of Developer Edition for your use and license the appropriate Deployment Editions for your clients to deploy with their application as the need arises.
If you are part of an ISV or IT development team, then you may want to license multiple copies of Developer Edition for your team members and license a copy of the appropriate Deployment Edition to deploy with your application.
The Chant Developer Edition license is a single end-user license.
Before you deploy your application, you must purchase a license for the Chant Deployment Edition that provides you the library to include with your application.
The Chant Deployment Edition license allows you to distribute the Chant component library to many end users systems.
The Chant Developer Workbench licenses provides a way to license all 5 Developer and Deployment Editions (Win32 and WinCE) on an annual subscription basis. These licenses include new releases during the subscription period and also offer the advantage of a single license and serial number pair to unlock all 5 Developer or Deployment Editions
