Licensing Question

P: n/a
We are about to build web application that connects to a MS SQL
database. We are planning on building the application to connect to
the database through one user account, say "webuser" that all
visitors to the site will use. For example let's say the site is an
online store (for simplicity) and each time a person clicks on a
product category items are loaded from the database and displayed. We
are planning on using the "webuser" mssql account to achieve this
data retrieval. What kind of mssql license do I need to purchase?

Thanks in advance.

Processor licence. CALs are only an option in an environment where you
control the total number of end users or devices and where the number
of users is small enough to make CAL licensing economical. Users count
for CALs, not connections.

Whenever possible please post enough code to reproduce your problem.
Including CREATE TABLE and INSERT statements usually helps.
State what version of SQL Server you are using and specify the content
of any error messages.
