Open-source software is free of licensing fees. Furthermore, it is
easy to adapt and enhance with new features. Nevertheless, using
open-source frameworks is not for free. Like in closed-source
software, no one is an expert on every framework. The total
cost of ownership also includes training, adoption, enhancement and
maintainance of a framework. It might take significantly more time for
somebody new to the project to extend a certain feature than for the
person who is familiar with the framework. Furthermore, software
has to be maintained. Even if this can be done literally by
everybody for open-source software, a professional maintainance
agreement with fixed response times is often mandatory in an
industrial setting. This ensures your productivity. EclipseSource
employs several EMFStore committers and
