Notes

You generate runtime packages for distribution of extensions that do not contain AL code, but only the final artifacts used by the server at runtime. Runtime packages allow you to protect the intellectual property represented by your AL source code. The extension in a runtime package can be installed on servers that do not have a developer license. The license is checked on the server where the runtime package is generated.
