I am confusing that, what is >NET and JAVA environments. When i tried to find some infromation on SDN, there is found that these environments. Could any clarify me that how these environments helps us. Could any one please answer these:

Is BOEXI 3.1 is enough to setup a server or do we need .NET or JAVA?

What is .NET or JAVA Environment?

Do we need to buy .NET, and do we need to install .NET on BOEXI 3.1 server? (.NET Environment)

Do we need to buy JAVA and do we need to install JAVA on BOEXI 3.1 server? (JAVA Environment)

BOEXI 3.1 is enough to work on all the tools then why we need .NET or JAVA and who they help?

Thanks & Regards

Could you please explain about SDKs

SDKs would help you to achieve some/ most of the features available using Infoview through a customized application.

how these helps in creating customized applications and in what scenarios or when we will get requirement to create customized applications in BOE XI.

Lets say you do not want to use the Infoview and have a separate application (for internal use) which needs to display some features like reports, scheduling, viewing etc then you can add those features in your application using the BOE sdks.

[Dev library|] is something you would like to see!

Hope that helps!
