3rd party libraries

Nodinite uses many Open-Source repositories and other 3rd party libraries with open-source licensing. We at Nodinite are proponents of open-source based software!
We may provide templates and example code (SDKs) for the following components and applications:

Nodinite Applications, Services and APIs make use of different run-times:

Run-time Version Major Nodinite Version Comment
.NET 8 7.0 In active development
Supported OS versions
.NET 7 6.x In use by some Monitoring Agents
.NET 6 - No longer in active use
.NET Framework 4.8 v6.x We recommend 4.8.1 or later
.NET Framework 4.6.2 v5.4.x We recommend 4.8.1 or later
.NET Framework 4.5.2 v5.0 -> 5.3.x We recommend 4.8.1 or later. BizTalk Monitoring Agent make use of this version
.NET Framework 4.0 - No longer in active use
.NET Framework 3.5.1 - Required by the Microsoft BizTalk Server run-time, not a requirement for any Nodinite binary
Java run-time 21 JMX Monitoring Agent If possible, make sure to use the OpenJDK versions, NOT the Oracle versions
Note: You MUST update .NET run-time frequently to stay supported

.NET Patching notes
As documented by Microsoft, you must update almost monthly to stay supported.

Why do we prefer open-source licensing?

We at Nodinite use open-source libraries using open-source-based licensing forms because it promotes freedom and does not impose licensing limitations or demands on our or your custom code. We contribute not only by using the libraries, but our ambition is to contribute by actively helping to develop the stuff we use.

Why do we NOT use pure GPL-based software?

We care about our intellectual property; GPL is a “viral” license and must be avoided at all costs. Any derivative works (programs like Nodinite) must also be licensed under the GPL. Also, any work that you would later add like custom agents, plugins etc. would also have to be licensed under the GPL.

The Nodinite Java run-time monitoring is built with Java using the OpenJDK which uses the GNU General Public License, version 2, with the Classpath Exception.
