There was an epic discussion on Twitter last Friday about licensing around SAP’s web services. Or as @qmacro called it, a “licensing thread of death.” These are my thoughts and concerns, hopefully a little more clearly than on Twitter. Links to relevant resources are below.
Oh yeah, and I had a cold (all better now). Sorry about any sniffling that may have made it into the video.
Links to resources discussed in the video blog:
- Enterprise Services Workplace – http://esworkplace.sap.com/ – documentation on and test platform for the Enterprise Service Repository (ESR)
- Netweaver Developer License Agreement (NDLA) – http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/503a0f2f-0497-2d10-c2a6-e6ac63446c62?quicklink=index&overridelayout=true – Note especially the sections about what constitutes an Addon and what you are allowed to do with Addons
