Gif4J Products FAQ > Licensing & Ordering
How is the Gif4J LIGHT licensed?
The Gif4J LIGHT has two types of licenses: development licences for application development
and deployment licences for application distribution and deployment.
The next development licenses are available to order:
Personal Developer License:
The next deployment licenses are available to order:
Grants to download and install one copy of the Gif4J LIGHT for use only for the purpose
of development and only by one individual (individual business or private company with no developers-employees) on a single computer.
Site Developer License:
Grants all developers of one company/organization who are located in one
physical location to use the Gif4J LIGHT for the purpose of development.
Note: Both Gif4J LIGHT development licenses offer royalty-free distribution of applets and stand-alone end-user java applications.
Site Developer License does not cover the use of the Gif4J LIGHT
by your contractors if you outsource part of the project:
if the contractor is a separate company/organization, they must buy their own license.
JVM Runtime License:
Allows to distribute and install(deploy) the Gif4J PRO on one
Java Virtual machine per license. These licences are transferable to
customers or other third parties, which means that if the customer or other
third party acquires a certain number of licences for the Gif4J LIGHT
software-based applications from the licensee, the respective number of
runtime licences are transferred to the customer.
Note: Under this license you can deploy
Gif4J LIGHT-based applications to a server platform.
- free application deployment on any number of desktop or notebook computer;
- one JVM Runtime License per single web application if it is run within a single JVM (private JVM);
