Ron, Jim, others,

We use JBA in our shop.  It has what I believe to be a concurrent license;
doesn't give a hoot _who_ is signed on to JBA, just how many.

The real kicker is that a single user on a single display session can count as
more than one user when they use SysReq-1 to sign on to an "alternate" job.  I
haven't quite figured that out.  Thank God we don't do group jobs here!  We have
to bang on users who have two JBA sessions up every once in a while, so other
users who are locked out can log in.

I believe (but don't quote me in a court of law) that this is the definition
of "concurrent users" and is used all the time. I know we have a concurrent
users agreement with our GUI software vendor and it works exactly like this.
X number of users at one time, but X can vary as to individuals.

Moral? Sure. That's exactly how we contracted to use the product.

Ron
