Building your application
Licensing and costs
The WEM Modeler is free to use. Without any restrictions. So go ahead and model your own applications!
WEM offers a full DTAP (Development, Testing, Acceptance and Production) solution. You start modelling your application in the test & development environment. Using the test & development environment is free, so there are no costs associated with building your application.
Once you are ready to share the application with others for acceptance testing, you publish your application to the staging (acceptance) environment. And when you are ready to go live, you publish to the production environment. Publish to staging or production requires a WEM license, and even then you only pay for what you use.
Check the license information for more details on WEM Licensing.

Yes, you can publish your WEM application to a specific domain. Before you can use the staging environment (e.g. for acceptance testing) you need to specify the hostname that is used to access the project.
The same applies to the production environment: you need to specify the hostname that is used to access your project in the production environment.
Yes, it is possible to use your own mailserver in WEM projects if you want to use a non-WEM email address as sender. There are 2 ways to implement this:
- Using our default mail server. Note that our server must be authorized via an SPF record in DNS from your domain.
- Another option is to directly use your own mail server. In WEM you can implement / manage the smtp settings on the workspace level. Note that you have to put our outbound IP address into the IP whitelist on your (customer) firewall.
