    Introduction
     
    When QAD QXtend is first installed, the installation defaults to a QAD & Approved QAD Partner Free Use license. This license enables QAD QXtend to process data synchronization and QAD internal messages—including messages between QXO and QXI—free of charge. In order for QAD QXtend to communicate with other products, you must submit a license code issued by QAD.
    QAD QXtend licensing is based on a hierarchy of the base module, receivers, senders, and agents. Each is individually priced. The base module requires a number of receivers and agents, and each agent is coupled with an additional receiver. The base module becomes available when you enter a valid license. The license encodes how many receivers and agents are available for each QAD QXtend installation, the type of license, and a unique code indicating the organization who owns the license.
    Agents move data into and out of the system. They listen for requests to transmit data, gather the data to transmit, and deliver it to the receiver. In QXI, connection pools are assigned one or more processing threads. When the system processes a QDoc request, it uses an available connection pool agent. In QXO, Message Sender sessions are the processing agents. Each agent is licensed, and a limit encoded into the license ensures that the number of agents is not exceeded across the QAD QXtend installation. The number of receivers is not enforced.
