There’s no change to the status of your Independent Consultant License program license. You can use this license for a customer if you have not already assigned it.
I have previously purchased Ext JS or GXT licenses under the Independent Consultant License program. Now that you’re offering Single Developer Subscription Licenses (as of 12/1/2017 for Ext JS and 6/4/2018 for GXT), how does this impact my usage of current Ext JS or GXT licenses under the Independent Consultant License program, and what happens when my license expires?
I’m a Consultant/Systems Integrator that is doing work for a customer with Sencha Ext JS and Sencha GXT. Do I need a license? Does my customer need a license?
Yes, either you or your customer will need to purchase licenses for the framework.
Generally, your customer must purchase enough licenses to cover your developers and any of their developers updating or maintaining the application. For example, if you use 6 developers to create the application and your customer will support the application with 3 developers, then they would need to purchase 9 licenses, which would cover all the developers.
Alternatively, if you purchased licenses for your consultancy prior to the development, you can assign them to your customer by notifying Sencha and following any other conditions for an assignment included in the license agreement. So in the same example, if you use 6 developers to create the application and your customer will support the application with 3 developers, you could transfer two of the licenses to your customer if you had already purchased them.
Independent Consultants may purchase fewer than 5 licenses of Ext JS, GXT, or Test on behalf of a named client provided the consultant meets the eligibility requirements. You can also buy a single developer license(s) with an annual subscription for Sencha Ext JS and Sencha GXT.
How are Sencha products licensed?
Sencha Ext JS, Sencha GXT, and Sencha Touch are licensed under three options: a commercial license, a commercial OEM license, and an open source license (GPL V3). Sencha Architect is available as part of the Ext JS Pro and Premium packages. To find out which option is right for you, read more about the appropriate use cases for each of these three licenses in the questions above. Sencha Test is licensed on a term-based model.
When do I need a commercial OEM license?
Some uses of Sencha Ext JS and GXT require an OEM license rather than Sencha’s standard license (more detail here). Please read the license agreement under the Prohibited Use or contact a Sencha Sales Representative for more information on when an OEM is needed. Since use cases vary widely, commercial OEM licenses are customized per customer. Contact us to learn more about this option. Full license details are available in our Legal section.
Can I start my development with a GPLv3 version and then buy a commercial license before I want to release my application?
No, the terms of our commercial license do not allow this. You must choose which license you wish to use (commercial or GPLv3) at the beginning of your development lifecycle.
I’m under contract to build an application for my customer. At the end of the project, I will deliver the software to my customer. My customer will own the intellectual property (IP) for the software. Who needs to purchase a commercial license, my customer or do I need to?
If you meet all of the Independent Consultant Program eligibility requirements, you can purchase fewer than 5 licenses of any Sencha product on behalf of a named client and transfer the licenses to them upon project completion. Alternatively, the client may purchase the licenses, transfer the rights to your organization to develop the application and you would transfer the rights back to the client upon project completion.
I have 3 developers, do I need a license that covers up to 5 developers?
For Ext JS or GXT, you can purchase less than 5 licenses under our Single Developer Subscription License (annual subscription) program.
For Sencha Test, yes, you will need to purchase a license that covers up to 5 developers unless you meet all of the Independent Consultant Program eligibility requirements, where you can purchase fewer than 5 licenses of Ext JS, GXT, or Test on behalf of a named client. The licenses allow you and your team to to use the software to create and/or test applications, provision their tech support entitlements and also grants distribution rights for the software/applications you have created. If you do not meet the Independent Consultant Program eligibility requirements, you must purchase a license which covers up to 5 developers. As your team grows, you’ll have up to two more licenses as your developers need them, without any additional processing.
I have a team of 8 developers that need to be licensed with Ext JS, can I buy 8 licenses or do I need to buy two 5 packs of Ext JS?
You can buy 8 licenses of Ext JS through our store.
