Hi - we have licensed JESS and are using it in a commercial application for 2.5 years now. While I can't speak for the licensing process, we have made good experiences with the technical side of things. It's easy to integrate, well documented and the mailing list is generally responsive to specific problems. We also have a support/maintenance agreement that we use now and then for specific issues.
Our lessons learned, very subjective of course: Jess does what it says it will do - which might not be what you expect it to do. Spend time to learn it. A lot of problems turn out to be not actual problems but rather "as designed" mechanisms. For us, it's fast, it's stable and with the source code it's also changeable - although we try to stay away from that. Overall experience - very good, I'd say.

März 2012 01:10 An: firstname.lastname@example.org Betreff: JESS: [EXTERNAL] Jess Licensing Question Does anyone have experience licensing Jess for commercial use? My employer is interested in licensing the software. But getting formal references from Sandia turns out would take longer than we'd expected. While waiting for Sandia's formal references to come through, I wonder if anyone here have had some experience they wouldn't mind sharing. If you have licensed the software and have anything to say about your experience using the software in commercial environment, the process of licensing it, and any lessons learned, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks! Yuan
