The Developer License is free to all who sign up and join the MarkLogic developer community. It provides all MarkLogic capabilities including the Universal index, ACID transactions, REST and Java APIs, ODBC connector, semantics, clustering, high-availability and disaster-recovery features. It may not be used for production. It has a 6 month time limit and new licenses may be requested on expiration.
How do you get a key? After you download, install, and start up MarkLogic, browse to the admin interface (http://localhost:8001/) and request a Developer License directly from within the interface. (If you are running MarkLogic on a host other than localhost, replace the localhost name in these links accordingly.)
For full details, see the click-through license agreement when you request a Developer License.
