The Mendix Runtime executes the application model that is created in Studio Pro. It serves pages to the Mendix Client, executes microflows, calls web services, generates documents, communicates with the database, and much more.
You need a license to run an application in production mode. Without a license, the Mendix Runtime stops operating after a couple of hours. A license can be obtained through your account manager at Mendix. Afterwards, you can activate your license by following the instructions in How to Activate Your Mendix License on Microsoft Windows.
You can extend the functionality of the Runtime by writing Java actions. For more information, see the Runtime API section of API Documentation.
