TFORMer SDK: Report Generator Licensing

TFORMer SDK and TFORMer Designer are licensed separately. In order to get an unrestricted and licensed version of the product, you need a license key. The license key unlocks the downloaded demo version - no additional download is needed.

License Scope

TFORMer SDK prints or exports document layouts that are designed prior with TFORMer Designer. Unlike TFORMer Designer, TFORMer SDK does not provide a graphical user interface for creating reports and form layouts. It is exclusively a report generator and software component.

Each TFORMer SDK license includes all supported APIs (JAVA, .NET 2.0, COM, DLL, EXE). TFORMer SDK licenses are only available to TFORMer Designer users.

When do you need a TFORMer SDK license?

You need one or more TFORMer SDK licenses under the following conditions:

  • When you want to embed TFORMer SDK as a report generator or reporting component into your own application for distribution to third parties.
  • When you want to use the report generator on your servers (e. g. web or Citrix server).
  • When you want to use the report generator on workstations without installing TFORMer Designer at the same time.

Bug Fixes

  • Number Format on Linux/UNIX
    The current locale now determines the number format on Linux/UNIX (TFM-8182).
  • SDK XML Import: Number of Copies
    When importing XML files using the internal XML file format, the number of copies will be recognized correctly again (TFM-8362).
  • FontManager
    Fixed a memory leak in the internal fontmanager.

Known Bug

  • Data Matrix
    On some Linux builds (e.g. RHEL 6, 7) the Data Matrix Base 256 mode encodes wrong data if Byte values >= 0x80 are encoded. This may occur with special characters in the Latin-1 or UTF-8 character set, but also with binary data. The problem does not occur with the standard ASCII character set. See TBC-8526 for more information.
