Getting a second license?

Hi Eggplanters,

We just purchased our first Eggplant license here and a nice dual core Mini to go with it. Since we only have the one computer, what would a second license enable us to do?

    We offer something called a "two-pack" that allows you to run a second copy of Eggplant on the same computer in command-line mode (at a reduced price).

    This allows you to have one copy of Eggplant running all of your production automation scripts while still enabling Eggplant Users to create and run new test scripts.
  • So is it not possible to have a second VNC session open and run 2 scripts independently?
  • JonathanOSXJonathanOSX ForumAdmin admin
    Certainly, with a second full license you can run two completely independent copies of Eggplant. This would allow you to be working on two scripts at once. It's even possible (on Mac OS X Tiger) to setup a second account that another user can access (via VNC) to run that second Eggplant in an independent desktop.

    But, if your only interest is in running a second script then you are better off with the two-pack option. That does have the script running independently, it's just not in the GUI environment. And of course each Eggplant needs it's own SUT to execute against.
  • Is the two-pack option the same price as two independently purchased node-locked licenses?

    No, the two-pack price is at a significant discount. The best thing to do is to fill out a quote request on our Quote Request Page.
