Well.... I am sure the guy up there does not know what is saying... speaking in Euros and not in Dolars that was used over the forum...
However look this:
- Delphi XE5 license Brazil: US$1,500.00
- TMS Business Pack: US$ 1,000,00
- ElevateDB with source: US$800,00
- EXTJs: US$329.00
- UniGUI: who knows???
Considering half of this price per year as updates. IT IS NO CHEAP !
There are benefits? Yes, based on these tools I have customers. But it is not a river of money.
Sorry, I had to say that after this 2 post.... have a nice day!
If you completely move to web apps you can get rid of TMS pack!!
Whether it is cheap or not it is related to customer base and how large it is. My main point is that Web applications mainly target a market where apps are sold for higher prices than regular desktop apps.
