Vaadin Trial FAQ
Do I need to provide a credit card to start a trial?
No. No credit card details are required to try Vaadin Pro.
Are there any feature limitations during the trial?
No, you get full access to all features and components during your trial period.
How do I upgrade my trial to a paid subscription?
Go to the Pricing page and select Buy for the subscription level of your choice.
I need more time to evaluate Vaadin for my project. Can I get an extension to the trial license?
Yes. You will have an option to request a trial extension when your trial runs out - or contact us directly.
I previously had a trial for one product and would like to try another product, but my license has expired. Can I request a new trial?
No. The trial gives you access to all products at the same time. If you only use one product during your trial, it still counts as a trial of all products.
If you need more time to evaluate all the products, reach out to us and we'll gladly help you.
How does the license check work?
For all browser-based components, the license checker runs in the browser during development time. The license checker is not included in production builds.
For TestBench and Multiplatform runtime, the license is checked at runtime on the server
Will my end users see license check warnings?
No, license warnings are only shown on localhost during development.
How can I see the status of my trial?
You can see the status of your trial by validating your license.
How can I remove the license from my computer?
If you need to remove or change a valid license for any reason, it is located in
~/.vaadin/proKey in UNIX systems and
C:\Users\<username>\.vaadin\proKey in Windows.
