Valentina Products Documentation
Paradigma Software Inc. offers the complete set of FREE versions of its own products! You can use for free:
- Valentina Server - free edition, which has 5 connections. DB + REPORT server!
- Valentina ADK as a client to above free VServer or to any commercial VServer.
- Valentina Studio in basic edition can be used for management of Valentina databases, SQLite databases, Valentina/mySQL/PostgreSQL servers.
Paradigma Software team understands that Application Developers need ability to deploy their application royalty free. Our developer products provide such license.
If you are a developer, you can deploy your solutions with a Valentina Database/Reports technology as a part of your solution. As a developer you have two major choices:
- APP with embedded LOCAL DB/REPORTS engine
- APP as a client to VSERVER
In the first case you should use a Valentina ADK, which should be paid for, but you get royalty free embedded database engine OR report engine.
In the second case you still need a Valentina ADK, but you will use Valentina CLIENT component, which is always FREE. In the same time you still need Valentina Server. If you want to deploy Valentina Server as part of your installer then you should purchase Valentina Embedded Server, which is royalty free for deployment and offers 5 connections to users of your application. You can also do not use Valentina Embedded Server as a part of your deployment archive, and ask users instead to download and install free VServer, get a free license on the user`s name and use that.

Application Developer Kits
Application Developer Kit is a toolkit that allows you to develop application(s) with all or any of these components:
- Valentina Database Engine - to work with local Valentina databases in a single user mode.
- Valentina Reports Engine – to work with local Valentina Project with reports. Note, that local are reports. But the datasource for a report can be a connection to the remote DB server.
- Valentina Client - to access remotely a Valentina Server, which manages databases and/or reports in a multi-user mode.
Please note, that there is no such product as “Valentina Reports”, but there is such a technology, which is integrated into all above products of Paradigma Software. You should choose a tool(s) depending on tasks of your project (e.g. if you need local single user report engine embedded into your application or you need multi-user access to a Valentina Report Server from your application).
