Editions of Brazos UI for IBM
As of version 5.0.0, Brazos UI for IBM is available in two editions: the Brazos UI Developer Edition and the Brazos UI Enterprise Edition. "Brazos UI Lite" has been retired in favor of the Brazos UI Developer Edition and will no longer receive updates.
Brazos UI Enterprise Edition
Brazos UI Enterprise Edition is available to customers and partners who have paid support subscriptions with BP3 Global. If you are a Brazos UI Enterprise Edition customer you can download the latest version here.
Brazos UI Enterprise Edition includes the following additional benefits that are not included with the Brazos UI Developer Edition:
Outstanding support! You get direct access to the engineering team who builds Brazos UI, the ability to ask questions about Brazos UI controls, prioritized bug fixes and enhancement requests, and insight into the Brazos UI roadmap. Your exact support entitlements will vary depending on your support subscription.
Freedom of use. The Enterprise Edition contains no restrictions to control configuration options. As well, Brazos UI Enterprise Edition may be restyled and used in external and commercial applications.
Access to Brazos UI Toolkit Archives. We maintain an archive of past Brazos UI releases that are only available to our Enterprise customers.
Brazos UI Developer Edition
The Brazos UI Developer Edition is freely available to customers and partners who have registered with BP3 Global and agreed to the EULA. If you have registered as a Developer Edition customer, you can download the latest version here.
All controls, fully functional. The Brazos UI Developer Edition is a fully featured edition of Brazos UI! It contains all of the same controls as the Enterprise Edition, allowing you to develop fully functional coaches just as you would with the Enterprise Edition. The Developer Edition does come with two important restrictions as outlined in the EULA:
- Configuration options to alter BP3 branding are disabled and you are not permitted to hide or mask BP3 branding.
- The Developer Edition is intended for internal and non-commercialized use only and may not be used in production environments and for commercial applications.
Limited support. Developer Edition customers may submit bug reports but are not entitled to direct support from BP3. Seeking self-directed help using the Brazos UI Developer Edition? Please see our Help Center articles, online documentation, BP3 YouTube channel, and Stack Overflow community.
Easy to upgrade. Ready to take your beautifully-designed, fully-functional coaches to production? Simply install the Brazos UI Enterprise Edition and update the toolkit dependencies. Everything will function exactly as it did before with the additional freedom to rebrand your coaches!
Brazos UI Lite
The former trial version of Brazos UI was called Brazos UI Lite. Brazos UI Lite was free to all users who registered and accepted the EULA.
No further updates or support.
Limited access to some controls and configuration options. Brazos UI Lite does not have access to the Attach File, Data Table, certain Charts, Progress Bars, and several other newer controls and also includes limitations to the Brazos Table control. The limited controls and configurations are clearly highlighted in the IBM BPM Process Designer and the release notes.
Rest assured that upgrading from Lite to Enterprise (or Developer Edition) is fast and easy. We have designed Brazos UI to ensure a smooth upgrade path. Simply install the Brazos UI Developer Edition or Enterprise Edition snapshot and update dependencies. All references to Coach Views and configuration options work seamlessly between versions.
