License & Pricing

CUBA Platform is distributed under Apache 2.0 - the most popular permissive open source license, which ensures the freedom to use the platform and your applications for any purpose. The source code of the platform is available on GitHub.
Complementary RAD tools and additional modules intended to accelerate development are available in free and commercial editions.
Kick off your project with CUBA Studio

Continue in a Java IDE
CUBA applications can be developed without Studio purely in a Java IDE, and the free CUBA plugin adds platform-specific convenience features for working with code.
Starting at $139 per developer
