The Red Hat JBoss Developer Program (the Zero-Dollar Developer subscription) is available to you for a full year simply by requesting one of the exclusive assets - whether that is a download of a product binary, viewing some of the exclusive content or posting questions to the product developer forums. The first time you download any of these assets you'll be prompted to accept the terms and conditions (termsandconditions) and you will be asked to renew each year.
I'm faced on the same issue.
My company use JBoss EAP 6.1.GA on Server and JBoss CE 7.1.1 on developer workstation.
We are 120 developer and the tool are deployed automatically by Microsoft Installer (MSI).
We have detected that some behavior between JBoss CE and JBoss EAP is not identical and any change need to be tested deeply 2 times (in the devel workstation & in the server). It's a waste of time...
Now, I appreciate to install JBoss EAP 6.1.GA on all devel workstation but:
- It's really free ?
- Each developer need create an account in jboss.org and try to download the package to "accept" the license or only me (or my company) take the responsability?
Yes, 0$ subscription mean you did not pay for it.
But from what I understand you have a valid subscription for the EAP6.1.GA, right?
In that case your developers can use the same bits for developing.
At this time, my company have a partner subscription for JBoss EAP but the license manager don't know the limit of the contract.
Several of my customers using JBoss EAP in production and we develop, support and help in the first line.
When the 'issue' come from Jboss (or we can't resolve), we contact your support.
In internal, we don't have "really" a production environnement. A central server contains the last evolution of own products and deeply tested before packaging to all customers.
I hope that more clear for you to understand if each users need register to have an account for accept the license during the download of jboss EAP?
in this case I really couldn't say.
But I suppose you have a portal and knowledgebase account with your subscription and being able to use that to download the EAP versions here.
For exact details I recommend to contact your sale representative.
