JackBe's Presto Starter Edition includes a 3-user developer-ready license that allows you to test Presto in a non-production environment per the terms described in the Starter Edition License found here.
This page provides a summary of the license terms and answers to frequently asked questions. The complete copy of the Presto Starter Edition License serves as the formal legal document and this summary is provided only as a convenience, and does not supercede the terms specified in the Presto Starter License.
License Overview The Starter Edition License means that all Presto software can be used for free in a 3-user, non-production environment. ‘Presto software’ includes the Presto Server, Presto Wires, Presto Enterprise Mashup Markup Language (EMML), Presto Admin Server, Presto Plug-in for Eclipse, Mashup Sites for SharePoint, and all Presto Add Ons.
Commercial Use The Starter Edition License allows you to deploy Presto in a non-production environment for up to 3 users. A separate commercial license is available for production deployment, or development efforts that need additional CPUs, professional support and/or software maintenance. Contact us at http://www.jackbe.com/about/contact_form.php for pricing.
OEM and Redistribution Commercial projects that embed the Presto software must have an OEM agreement. Contact us at http://www.jackbe.com/about/contact_form.php for pricing. Open source projects can include the Presto software free of charge, as long as they include the text below in the readme file or the release notes.
“This software includes Presto software under the terms of the Presto Starter License. See http://www.jackbe.com/enterprise-mashup/startereditionlicense for a current copy of the Presto Starter License.”

Educational Use Presto software can be used to teach a class at a school or university as long as you adhere by the Starter Edition License. Contact us at http://www.jackbe.com/about/contact_form.php for additional curriculum support.
Support and Commercial licenses The Starter Edition License does not include professional support. The Mashup Developer Community, however, provides a discussion forum where the community can freely ask and answer questions. The Mashup Developer Community includes many additional references, technical articles, tips and techniques, tutorials and more, all free of charge. However, we do not guarantee any type of service levels on the Mashup Developer Community. For guaranteed service levels we provide a Commercial License (see above).
Do I need a license key to use the Presto Starter Edition?
Yes. You can request a free Starter Edition License by visiting "View Your Account" section on this site and following the instructions on the Licenses tab to request a new license key.
I registered, but I don't have a license key or lost my evaluation license key. Where can I find my license ?
Login using your credentials and click on the "My License Key" link in the "My MDC Stuff" box located in the right column of the page. This will take you to the page that lists all the license keys issued to you. If you don't see the license for the latest version of Presto, you can click on "Request a new License" link in the grey menu bar in this page. This will show the list of available versions for which you can get your license key. Click on the link that matches the version you need and a license key will be generated if one has not yet been issued to you. However, if you have already been issued a license key, it will be listed on the license page as mentioned above. It is possilbe that the liccense key you have has expired as it is only valid for a certain period after it has been issued. In that case, you can contact us to request an extension license key to continue your evaluation (see below).
