Not sure which forum to post this in, so - maybe Coffee Corner is a good start 😊
My question is about the licensing required to development and marketing small add-ons / extensions for SAP Enterprise Portal.
Is it possible for the individual developer to develop and market small add-ons for EP in Java WDP, making use of a trail EP installation?
Do you need a special license for this (to develop commercial products)?
Maybe like a [SAP NetWeaver Developer Subscription|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/subscriptions/development?refer=subscriptionslandingpage], or the [SAP Composition Subscription|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/subscriptions/composition?refer=subscriptionslandingpage]?
Reading up on the [Subscriptions FAQ|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/scn/subscriptions/software-faq#q-4-5], and it is not very clear:
Can I use my developed add-ons, extensions, developments, or modifications in a production environment?
In order to run your add-ons, extensions, developments, or modifications in a production environment, you need to purchase the applicable license from SAP. SAP customers or partners who already have an applicable license can use SAP NetWeaver in a production environment.
"SAP customers or partners who already have an applicable license can use SAP NetWeaver in a production environment"
I'm not expecting to run the SAP NetWeaver Developer/Trail version you get with the subscription in a production environment - the question is would any prospective buyers of your developed add-ons be able to run these in their (fully licensed) NetWeaver / EP production environments?
(I feel this FAQ is not answering its own question correctly).
Purchasing a full EP license is a little out of my budget, and even the two developer subscriptions mentioned above are only available in Germany & the USA (and I reside in neither of which).
Any suggestions from the guys & girls of the Coffee Corner?
