With Wt 4 you don't need Boost, indeed. You only need to install Boost if you want to use Boost.

To elaborate a bit more: there's two licenses but there's only one version of Wt. If you use Wt under the GPL license, you can still use all of Wt. It's just that if you distribute the software you built with it, then that should be under the GPL and you will have to share the source code.

I should be under the GPL and have to share the surce code.

"the source code" mean all the project source code?

RE: The easy Method of Wt Wiki - Added by Roel Standaert 3 months ago

Yes, all of the source code you used to make your binaries that use Wt have to be shared to whoever you're distributing that binary to, and it should be under the GPL.

Note: if you're running a service based on Wt (so the users can not get to the binary), then you don't need to share the source code.

If you are distributing the binaries, but don't also want to share your source code, you will need to pay for a proprietary license.

How about the performance of web applications developed by Wt?

Is it okay if I use it to develop large web applications?

I choice Wt, because I just want to use c/c++ program language.

RE: The easy Method of Wt Wiki - Added by Roel Standaert 3 months ago

It's not easy to define what constitutes a large web application. I would say that Wt is usually not the bottleneck, but rather the database or the network is, or some other backend thing (Wt is commonly used in applications that do a lot of number crunching). Of course, if you're looking at major web applications, there's a lot more infrastructure involved, and Wt can be one part of that.

Wt seems to be more used in embedded systems?

RE: The easy Method of Wt Wiki - Added by Roel Standaert 3 months ago

I don't have any statistics about where Wt is used the most myself, but from my experience we actually have quite a few customers using Wt outside of embedded systems. Embedded is an obvious use case, of course.
