* The Developer edition contains much of the functionality of the Server edition and it is meant for development purposes only. The deployment to production requires a license, for more information refer to the VAR Program

**Note: Technically two transactions are allowed. However, one of them is intended so that some drivers use it for metadata queries (for example, in FireDAC).
