Multi developer notes
In order to use multi-dev you have to start a Servoy Server (called multi-dev-server). This can be done in the admin-page network settings. You need to enter the external ip or dns name in the property called "servoy.multideveloper.address", this will enable multi developer. Next, restart the server.

When connecting with Servoy Developer to the repository database managed by a multi-dev-server, a login dialog appears. The user must be admin-user on the multi-dev-server. If you now try to touch a repository object like a form you will be informed if someone else is working on that object. Also, styles are synced over developers.

Multi developer also includes audit support: in the LOG_SERVER connection a developer_audit table will be created and all changes/saves will be recorded: who, when and what.

Hi Sandor

This looks like another great Servoy release.

For clarification can you confirm that 3.1 is covered by the standard 3.0 Developer/Client licensing and we do not need the $4,995 MultiDeveloper license if using as a single-developer standalone product.

Thanks

Re: Servoy 3.1

Postby Robert Huber » Fri Jan 05, 2007 6:16 pm

Hi Sandor

I updated from 3.1 rc1 to 3.1. Now we can't connect in Multi Developer mode anymore!? This was possible in 3.1 rc. What can have happened? Also, I don't see anything to start a Servoy Server in the admin-page network settings. There I have fields like java.rmi.server.hostname, servoy.rmiStartPort, ... How to start the multi developer again?

Could this be a license problem. did anything change in this respect between 3.1 rc and 3.1 final?

Thanks and best regards, Robert

Hi Robert,

You indeed need a license for the Servoy MultiDeveloper Server. Licenses can be purchased through our online store at www.servoy.com/store

Hi Graham,

Yes, that is correct. If you don't want to use the Multi-Developer functionality - you don't have to pay for it. If you have subscription, 3.1 is a FREE upgrade.

Hi Bob

Do I understand it correctly that you charge 4995$ for the MultiDeveloper license? The MultiDeveloper is very useful, actually I think it's a must if moe than one developers are working on a project. But, as for a small developing group on a project, as we are, it's just too much, we can't afford it. Is there a version for only 2-3 developers which is more affordable?

Best regards, Robert

PS: I am a bit shocked about the pricing, as we evaluated open source software along Servoy, but always thought as Servoy has a modest pricing, it's not a criteria. But if that's going to changes all, it would be good to know.

Hi Robert,

Yes, you understand correctly that the multi-developer server is $4,995 for unlimited concurrent developers. We don't currently have a product/price for a "smaller team" version - although that is a great suggestion.

As mentioned in my post above - even with all the great extended functionality in 3.x it still remains a free update.

Thanks for your great comments and input!

Hi Bob

Thanks very much for your clarification. Please don't get me wrong: I very much appreciate your (all of you Servoyans) continous efforts on Servoy tools! And in the Beta stage we came to appreciate the MultiDeveloper, but now it's unfortunatly gone :-(

I would be extremly happy to have the possibility of a small team MultiDeveloper license. Thanks a lot for your cooperation!

Best regards, Robert

Hi Bob

Thanks for clarification - much appreciated.

Have looked at the multi-developer version for co-operative work we are doing with another Development company but the project does not justify the full $5k version. I would second Robert's idea of a multi-developer 'lite' version that was limited to 2-3 max. No great hurry - any time this weekend :twisted:

Have a great year.

Perhaps a charge per developer would be appropriate, instead?

Sandor,

The version that there is in the Web is Servoy 3.1 beta!, not Servoy 3.1

It really is 3.1 final - it's just the installer saying it is a beta release. But thanks for pointing that out, I'll fix that message shortly.

Oops, that shouldn't have been there. This is referring to a 3.0 release, sorry to have confused you. I removed it from the release notes to avoid further confusion.
