Free Runtime Licence

The download includes a free runtime licence that you can use for evaluating and testing AppThena. The main limitation of this licences is that it will only serve pages to "localhost". i.e. you must test it on the computer that contains the application server.

Please see the Licences page for more information about runtime licences including information about the free Test Licence.

End User Licence Summary

AppThena is published with a fairly typical closed source, commercial licence.

You are permitted to build and sell applications based on AppThena but you must purchase a valid runtime licence before making these applications available to end users. If you build an application on behalf of another party then either you or they must purchase a licence in their name.

All paid runtime licences are perpetual unless stated otherwise.
