Limitations of trial
If we develop with the Trial now can be buy the license when we go in production or is the trial license going to "crap" out on us with 15 day limitation? thus we would have to start developement again with full software version?
Ideally what we would like to do is develop the software with Trial, test it using the trial for as long as possible then when deploying out production application on the clients server, we would just buy a license for them. Can we do this? Saves us having to buy a license if we don't need it.
I think what you mean is - write the applications using the ActiveWidgets components, test your application, then during the rollout phase purchase the licence? This is the logical phase of any software development method, I can't see any other way we would implement this.
Guess, prototype development using trial is fine but product development requires license. My 2 cents.
Test the functionality of the grid, learn its capabilities and then decide whether you will use it in your software. When you say "Saves us having to buy a license if we don't need it.", you imply that your decision to use the grid in production would be affected by something other than the capabilities offered by the grid, such as lack of funds.
ActiveWidgets is licensed per developer and this does not depend on how and when you will deploy your application (or whether you will deploy it at all) - in any case each developer should have an ActiveWidgets license during the development phase.
However from a consumers perspective surely you can't expect developers to purchase multiple licenses without implementing the code within their own project to see how it runs? That would be like purchasing a car without actually taking the testdrive yourself.
The main concern is that we don't know how well it will integrate into our existing systems and whether we can manage a fullscape code conversion to the ActiveWidgets components, I'm not sure I say a way out for either party on this front, hence we might have to reject this product and move to something else as it seems to be based on a "leap of faith" principle.
Is there an opensource version available that would allow us to implement the Widgets according to our implementation models?
