License Considerations

TIBCO StreamBase License Does Not Include TIBCO Live Datamart

Many customers acquire licenses for both TIBCO StreamBase® and TIBCO® Live Datamart.

Even if you have licensed only TIBCO StreamBase®, your installation includes both TIBCO StreamBase and TIBCO® Live Datamart in the same installation package. A single installation procedure installs both products into the same directory structure on the target machine.

However, while TIBCO StreamBase and TIBCO Live Datamart are installed together, they are not licensed together. The two products are licensed separately according to the terms of the End User License Agreement for each product:

  • Your TIBCO StreamBase license grants you the rights to deploy a StreamBase application on the number of TIBCO StreamBase server instances described in the terms of your license.

  • If you wish to separately deploy a TIBCO Live Datamart application on a TIBCO LiveView server, you must have a separate license to use TIBCO Live Datamart.

The test for your license status is your TIBCO Order Form. If TIBCO Live Datamart is not listed on your Order Form, then you are not entitled to use it.

Note

Starting with TIBCO StreamBase® release 10.1.0, the co-installed release of TIBCO® Live Datamart uses the same numbering system as TIBCO StreamBase.

TIBCO Live Datamart License Does Not Include TIBCO StreamBase

Many customers acquire licenses for both TIBCO® Live Datamart and TIBCO StreamBase®.

Even if you have licensed only TIBCO® Live Datamart, your installation includes both TIBCO Live Datamart and TIBCO StreamBase® in the same installation package. A single installation procedure installs both products into the same directory structure on the target machine.

TIBCO Live Datamart is based on TIBCO StreamBase and requires the included TIBCO StreamBase installation in order to run. The included TIBCO StreamBase installation is provided (1) for use by your licensed TIBCO Live Datamart server, and (2) for the limited purpose of using TIBCO StreamBase applications to push data into your licensed Live Datamart server. If you have licensed only TIBCO Live Datamart, the included TIBCO StreamBase installation is explicitly not licensed for use as an independent StreamBase server.

Thus, although the two products are installed together, and although TIBCO Live Datamart is dependent on TIBCO StreamBase, the two products are licensed independently, according to the terms of the End User License Agreement for each product:

  • To deploy a TIBCO Live Datamart application on a TIBCO LiveView server, you must have a license to use TIBCO Live Datamart.

  • If you wish to separately deploy a StreamBase application on an instance of TIBCO StreamBase server, you must obtain a separate license to use TIBCO StreamBase.

The test for your license status is your TIBCO Order Form. If TIBCO StreamBase is not listed on your Order Form, then you are not entitled to use it.

Premium Adapters are Licensed Separately

Adapters are programs that convert data to and from the StreamBase tuple protocol. TIBCO StreamBase® Adapters fall into two licensing categories:

  • Standard Adapters, installed as part of the combined TIBCO StreamBase plus TIBCO Live Datamart installation package.

  • Premium Adapters, installed as part of the combined TIBCO StreamBase plus TIBCO Live Datamart installation package but licensed separately.

The formal definition of which Adapters fall into the Standard and Premium categories is maintained in PDF format at the following URL: http://www.tibco.com/StreamBase_Restrictions.

You are authorized to use the TIBCO StreamBase® Standard Adapters as part of your license to use TIBCO StreamBase® according to the terms of your End-User License Agreement.

Any TIBCO StreamBase® Premium Adapter, regardless of installation origin, must be separately licensed. Similarly, the TIBCO StreamBase® High-Performance FIX Engine must be separately licensed.

The test for your license status is your TIBCO Order Form. If a TIBCO StreamBase® Premium Adapter or the High Performance FIX Engine is not listed on your Order Form, then you are not entitled to use it.

Non-StreamBase Support Files Licensed Separately

Certain StreamBase adapters require support files from other TIBCO product lines or from other vendors. These files generally take the form of one or more JAR files. Adapter-required support files must be downloaded from their vendor's website and then incorporated into your StreamBase development environment as described in Using External JAR Files.

JAR files and other support files required to enable a StreamBase adapter are licensed by their vendors, and are not licensed as part of your StreamBase or Live Datamart license. This applies equally to support files from TIBCO products other than StreamBase, as well as to products from other vendors. Make sure you have a license to use any required support files.

Some support files, such as the JAR files that implement JDBC access to a vendor's database, are generally provided without charge, but there can be a download license agreement at the vendor's site. Other support JAR files are made available only to licensees of the product in question.

TERR Developer Edition Included

Effective with TIBCO StreamBase® version 7.6.3 and TIBCO® Live Datamart 2.1.3, the TIBCO StreamBase and TIBCO Live Datamart products include a copy of TIBCO® Enterprise Runtime for R Developer Edition.

If you require a Production or Non-Production license to TIBCO Enterprise Runtime for R, please contact your sales representative.

TIBCO LiveView Web Standard Edition Included

Highcharts License Notes

The Sample's purpose is to illustrate the use of the TIBCO Live Datamart JavaScript Client API to allow TIBCO Live Datamart results to be displayed on a web page or as part of a web application.

One feature of the Sample is a charting module that makes use of the Highcharts.js JavaScript library (“Library”), as published by Highsoft AS. Licensees of TIBCO Live Datamart may use the Library in connection with their instances of TIBCO Live Datamart solely on the condition that they comply with the following limitations:

  1. Customers of TIBCO Live Datamart are free to open, read, and modify the Sample, including the Library.

  2. Customers of TIBCO Live Datamart may use the Library in development of any web page or web application as long as such web page or web application connects to Customer’s instance of a TIBCO Live Datamart server to obtain its live data. Customer may not use the Library to develop web pages or web applications that do not connect to Customer’s instance of TIBCO Live Datamart.

Note

Customer understands that neither TIBCO nor Highsoft AS have any obligation to provide support regarding the web pages, web applications, or other functionality created by Customer using the Library. For general support in using the Library, you may consult the Highsoft AS documentation at http://api.highcharts.com/highcharts.

TIBCO Suites and Customer Data Calculation

If you license a TIBCO® Suite that includes TIBCO® Live Datamart as a Suite Component, then your license for TIBCO Live Datamart includes a limit on the amount of customer data under management. This is the sum total of your data made available to client applications served by TIBCO Live Datamart. The exact limit in gigabytes of customer data under management authorized by your Suite license is stated on your TIBCO Order Form.

You can track the amount of your customer data served by TIBCO Live Datamart with a simple query sent to the server. You can issue a query from any client application, including TIBCO LiveView™ Web, TIBCO LiveView™ Desktop, the lv-client command line tool, or from a client application you write using the TIBCO LiveView™ Client APIs in Java or .NET (on Windows only). See Calculating Customer Data Under Management for an example of such a query.
