Evaluation license application form

Please complete the following information to apply for a free-of-charge 30-day evaluation license. (Fields marked * are required)

All licenses work with all Java, .NET, C/C++, PHP, and Python versions of the product, and with older releases as well as current releases. The evaluation license gives access to all Saxon-EE functionality.

Evaluation licenses must not be used for production work. Because there have been abuses in the past, an evaluation license has two restrictions designed to discourage production use: firstly, the license is disabled for a randomly-chosen period of about 10 minutes in any day, and secondly, on about 1% of runs, it will insert random asterisks into serialized output.
