About the Developer License

The Developer License imposes no restrictions on the deployment of applications integrating XMLmind XML Editor (as is or customized/extended). Once this license has been purchased, no royalties or runtime fees will be due to XMLmind.

The main restriction of this license is dictated by common sense: in order not to directly compete with our product, the application developed by licensee must consist of substantially more than XMLmind XML Editor. For example, licensee may not develop and market an XML editor of any kind, whether generic or specialized, based on XMLmind XML Editor.

The intent of this license is:

  • Allow software vendors to integrate XMLmind XML Editor in their own products.
  • Allow system integrators to build for their customers IT solutions including XMLmind XML Editor.

    We still recommend system integrators to develop add-ons for XMLmind XML Editor and to let their customers purchase User Licenses, Site Licenses or Web Edition Licences. However, this approach was found to be impractical in some cases, hence the Developer License for system integrators.

    Note that with the Developer License, system integrators have the choice: purchase the license for themselves (which allows to use XMLmind XML Editor in other projects) or let their customers purchase it.

Note that the product being sold is still XMLmind XML Editor. That is, the xe-dev distribution consists in the union[1] of the xe-usr distribution and the xe-web distribution. There is no developer's kit per se, just documentation and code samples which can be freely downloaded from this page.


[1]Remember that the Developer License applies to both XMLmind XML Editor Professional Edition, the desktop application, and XMLmind XML Editor Web Edition, the web application. That is, licensee may choose to integrate/modify/distribute parts of only the desktop application or only the web application or both the desktop application and the web application.
