Licensing

Under what licensing models are your products available?

Our products are available under two different licences (dual license), GPL and commercial. Read the license information for the product you are interested in, InfoNode Docking Windows or InfoNode Tabbed Panel.

We develop software that are released under the GPL license. Can we use your GPL'ed software?

Yes, of course.

How many single developer licenses do we need to buy?

None if you release your software under GPL. If not, then if you distribute an InfoNode product as part of software that is not distributed under the GPL, all persons that have developed any part of the software that uses any functionality of the InfoNode product directly or indirectly must have purchased a developer license. Please read more about our license under each product InfoNode Docking Windows and InfoNode Tabbed Panel.

Can I transfer a developer license to another developer?

No, the developer licenses are personal. Once a developer license has been assigned to a developer it can't be transferred to another developer.

We have bought a number of commercial developer lincenses for one of your product. Are we allowed to distribute your GPL'ed distribution with our software?

No, not unless you distribute your software under GPL. You should use the commercial distribution you received when you bought the developer licenses.

Are there any deployment fees or royalties for a product that is using an InfoNode product?

No, there is no fee for each sold copy of the product that is using an InfoNode product. The only cost is for the InfoNode developer licenses.

What is included when I purchase a commercial license?

Email support for 4 months and upgrade to all new releases for 4 months. When your support period ends you will get an offer to prolonge it.

Is the source code available under the commercial license?

No, but it can be licensed under special license, see below. You can't modify the commercial distribution of an InfoNode product. If you want to modify the source code you must either buy a special license or use the GPL distribution of the product and release your modifications under the GPL.

Can I buy the source code for my project?

Yes you can. The source code can be licensed under a special license that lets you use the source code in one single project. It allows you to make modifications to the source code and any number of developers may also participate in the development without you having to buy developer licenses for every developer. Contact info@infonode.net for more information and pricing.

What is the difference between the commercial and GPL distributions of an InfoNode product?

They are built from the same source code, but the product information in the JAR files differ.

Can I include support for plug-ins in a product that uses the commercial distribution of an InfoNode product?

Yes, but you can't expose any functionality of the InfoNode product in your plug-in API. For example, it's perfectly fine to have a plug-in API where the application ask the plug-in for a JComponent which it places inside an IDW view, but you can't have methods for creating views in your plug-in API. Contact us if you are uncertain about your plug-in API.

If you want to expose some functionality of a InfoNode product in your API, contact us for a special license. The license cost depends on how much functionality you want to expose.

Can I create a library/framework that includes the commercial distribution of an InfoNode product?

Yes, but you can't expose any functionality of the InfoNode product in your library API. The same rules as for plug-ins apply, see the above question.

Can I use an obfuscator like ProGuard to obfuscate the commercial distribution of an InfoNode product together with my product and distribute the result?

Yes, but we provide no support for the obfuscated result.
