The EULA for ColdFusion 9 has several exciting changes. (Yes, excitement from a EULA!)
Usage with cloud computing is now supported. Each license of ColdFusion will limit you to a number of instances.
- Standard 1 instance
- Enterprise 10 instances
- ColdFusion 9 boxes dedicated to testing or group development no longer require their own licenses. A license of ColdFusion 9 you buy for production will allow you to create the rest of your environment. This is in addition to the change in the EULA we made in ColdFusion 8 to cover passive backup servers. We made both of these changes because it was important to us that developers not be penalized for following best practices.
It’s important to note that these changes are not retroactive to previous versions of ColdFusion, only to ColdFusion 9.
