Examples of such Add-ons are: plug-ins, new frameworks for XML document types, customization of an Oxygen framework for a default document type (DITA, DocBook, TEI, etc.) or extensions to access Oxygen XML Eclipse plug-in features from your own Eclipse plug-in.
e) "Software" means the Oxygen XML Software Development Kit (SDK) which enables you to develop Add-ons or Applications. The Software is comprised of libraries, source code, APIs, sample code and online or electronic documentation.
f) “Web Author Component” is a subset of Software composed of a server component operating as a service application and a client component deployed to a web browser, such as an HTML5 based application, where the client component is not installed on the client machine but is in use by the client machine while the browser is connected to the server component.
g) "Author Component" is the subset of the Software that is directly integrated in Application in order to provide functionality for editing and authoring XML documents.
h) "Application" is any custom software application that you have developed using Software that embeds a Web Author Component or integrates an Author Component. The Application developed by You must be an "end user application". An "end user application" is a specific application program that is licensed to a person or company for personal or business use and not with a view toward redistributing the application or any part of the application, and may be either an application that is used by licensee internally, or an application that is commercially distributed to end users for their use.

A group of independent computer systems, which outwards appear as a single web server and work jointly to balance the workload for server applications is considered a single Web Author Server, if all such systems are connected to the same License Deployment Manager.
k) "License Deployment Manager" is a licensing control tool, supplied by Syncro as part of the Software that shall be installed on an End-User centralized system (usually the Web Author Server) during the Application deployment and designed to control the use of Application only.
l) "Syncro Development Server" is a centralized license management server provided by Syncro, for development and testing of an Application in which Author Component or Web Author Component are embedded, in order to monitor and control use of Software on development phase and on prospects trials.
