Today I have a server software which includes a infrastructure to service and update client code but no really good tool to manage it.
I'm planning to create a tool for it using the extjs GPL license to see if I can combine open source and propriety. You are however writing:
"Certain Technical Strategies
Are you with this wanting me to also provide the sources for the server part responsible for reading and writing the sources to the database or are you simple meaning that if the extjs code is produced through database calls the source handling those calls should be open sourced? Extjs will only be used as a tool to write code and no extjs code for the admin tool will be rendered this way.
Can the client using the software continue to use the software even writing private software using extjs? I.e. if they get the product, can they use extjs to code since they are not distributing (which would require a license or release as GPL).
Can consultants work on the software writing extjs code on the behalf of the client? Again, no distribution.
Would same apply if I release the server as SAAS?
