    License

      Hi

      The Apex Listener Licence on OTN states

      License Rights
      We grant you a nonexclusive, nontransferable limited license to use the programs solely for your internal business operations subject to the terms of this agreement and the license grants and restrictions set forth with your licensing of such Oracle database programs. We also grant you a nonexclusive, nontransferable limited license to use the programs for purposes of developing your applications. This agreement does not grant any rights or licenses to Oracle database programs. If you want to use the programs for any purpose other than as expressly permitted under this agreement you must contact us, or an Oracle reseller, to obtain the appropriate license. We may audit your use of the programs. Program documentation is either shipped with the programs, or documentation may accessed online at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/documentation/index.html.

      So if you want to provide access to your Apex application via Apex Listener to a 3rd Party or to a REST-style service service are you allowed to do this under this license agreement.

      Also it mentions database licence, does this licence allow you to install apex listener on a separate HTTP server which then uses the licensed database on another server.

      Regards

          Hi Vickie,

          it actually is a little hard to find acutal license terms for production use. Fortunately, there have been a few threads on this topic before. One of them has been answered by Kris, so you have a kind of official statement there: {message:id=9714073}
          To conclude here, I'd say as long as you run the APEX Listener to serve properly licensed contents (e.g. APEX or other database-homed information) everything is fine as long as the database runs with an appropriate license and the JEE server you use to deploy the APEX Listener is licensed properly as well. If you use the APEX Listener in Standalone Mode (i.e., use the embedded grizzly), you don't have to care about the latter part.
