Applications that include the SAP Crystal Reports Java runtime component can be redistributed for free internally within your organization or outside your organization for free if the application is a thick-client application.
A server application allows more than one user to access the reporting engine either directly or indirectly through any middle-tier application. You are free to embed the runtime engine with server applications that are deployed internally, and use it in connection with the licensee's business, at no additional charge.
Server-based applications that are redistributed require additional licensing, as defined through our redistribution model. Under this model, if you wish to redistribute a server-based application that embeds the runtime engine to third parties, you will need to purchase a licensed copy of SAP Crystal Reports each time your application is deployed.
