I want to evaluate STS to find out if I could use STS instead of pure Eclipse or Netbeans for Java develiopment.
But when reading the end user license agreement I find the following in topic "2. LICENSE GRANT, USE AND OWNERSHIP":
"...VMware grants to Licensee a non-exclusive, non-transferable license (without the right to sublicense) (i) to use the Software in accordance with the Documentation solely for non-production purposes of Licensee's internal business operations, development, evaluation, and education..."
So I can use STS only "... for non-production purpose..."? What if I want to use it for "production purpose"? If I want to develop Java software that I want to sell one day? Do I have to buy a license then?
Up to now I thought that STS is also running under Apache license. But now I would be happy if someone could tell me if STS can be used for SW development for free or not.
thanks and regards
