CloudWriter is completely free for development.  All you have to do is register as a developer and then you may download a copy of CloudWriter to install in your development environment free of charge.

When you are ready to deploy your web application you must procure a deployment license.  The license fee for a deployment license is $495 per server CPU.  The deployment license covers ALL CloudWriter applications that run on that server.  The license includes the runtime language environment (which includes the interpreter) and the high-performance relational database management system.
