I'm not sure what you see.
If you download the EAP6.1.0.Final bits you are free to use it for development. The bits are always the same, the licence part is only the contract part.
You need to buy a subscription (and pay for it) if you use the bits in production. If you use it for development it will be a 0$ subscription, maybe the notification is to inform Red Hat that you still use this.
does that make sense to you?
thanks for your kind reply. What I was meaning is that if the EAP 6.1 is a "trial", which will lock up after the yearly subscription ends ? For example if you download the IBM WAS trial after 30 days or so it will lock up. As it's mentioned on my profile that "in xxx days your EAP subscription ends", I was just wondering if this is the case too.
