Title: Miva Script Compiler FAQ's|
Q. When will Miva ship Miva Merchant compiled?
A. There is no set date. The interpreted Miva
Merchant 4.x and Miva Empresa v3.x is a stable
environment. We are working with our base of
3rd party developers and hosting partners
to fully understand how to deploy the new code.
All Miva Merchant 4.x licensees will receive
a free compiled copy when it is available.
Q. What is the support policy for the compiler
and the virtual machine?
A. Initial installation support for the compiler
is free. Gold and Platinum (premier) hosting
partners also get free installation support.
We are working on an hourly rate and other
programs for highly customized installations.
Q. I am getting syntax errors when I compile
my Miva Script app. What do I do?
A. The best place to find information to
fix syntax errors is the Miva documentation
and the miva-users online user group. We
anticipate full documentation for Miva Script
4, the compiler and the virtual machine to
be online in August.
Q. How long will Miva Empresa 3.x be around?
A. We will continue to fully maintain Miva Empresa 3.x
insofar as necessary to fully support our base of
Miva Merchant users. No new features will be
added to Miva Empresa 3.x.
Q. Why are you still charging for Miva Empresa 3.x?
A. Miva Empresa 3.x is a per CPU license model and
Miva Empresa 4 uses a model that charges developers
a license fee for the tools necessary to develop for
the platform. The new 4 model better benefits the
end-users and creates an opportunity for developers.
Q. Is Miva entering the development tool business?
A. We've always been in the development tool business
and are now growing this part of the business. A new
Miva Merchant user goes online every 20 minutes based
on our underlying platform technology. There are many
other apps going online daily using the Miva platform
and we want to help fuel this growth. In many cases
the new apps are related to Miva Merchant, but many
are standalone useful programs.
