Ask about Community Edition License


I have one question about Intellij Idea Community Edition License ! It is free and open-source - ok, but I wondered if I can use it in company (and not for my personnal use) to develop Android commercials products without the Ultimate License ? I read the license but I am not sure if it's ok or not for non personnal use. And is there some license obligations with Apache License 2.0 if I use it only to develop (no touch at the source code)?

Thanks for answers !


PS : English is not my native language, sorry for mistakes.

Regardsing the Apache License 2.0 - there is a FAQ at their page which states the following:

It allows you to:

  • freely download and use Apache software, in whole or in part, for personal, company internal, or commercial purposes;
