Unfortunately the only supported packages for Definiens that are able to run in a LINUX environment are the license server, as well as the Earth Grid Server that is intended for eCognition Earth Server and is merely the job scheduler. Definiens has not come out with a version of Developer that is able to run on a LINUX machine. For easy reference the license server that is supported on LINUX merely hands out license *tokens* to client machines, where Definiens Developer (only Windows) resides.
If a customer has to install their Developer license server onto another machine you must get an email from the customer stating that they agree to discontinue the use of their old license and the license server is being transferred to another machine. Once you have received this send a copy to Definiens and advise them a customer is doing a rehost. You may then send a copy of the original entitlement certificate to the customer and ask them to generate an activation request on the new machine. (No new entitlement certificates are generated when conducting a license rehost) Once you receive the new activation request send it to Definiens and request a permanent license file.
It is not imperative to install the new version of Developer on your license server.
The license server merely hands out tokens and rarely has any updates. If there are any updates within the license server itself, Definiens will notify you. The upgrades are intended to be applied into your Developer software. You will not require a new license file for these upgrades either and all you have to do are run the install on each client machine.

Unfortunately since Definiens has gone to a single license method (floating license server) you do have to install the license server. This being said it is possible to have both a floating license server and a client installation on the same machine.
Yes, it is possible to run both eCognition Earth Server and Developer application on the machine. However for best performance with large datasets, it is recommended to install eCognition Earth Server on a separate machine and connect using Developer application through a client machine in same network.
If you wish to put your knowledge into practice with regards to Definien's Developer you can download the quick start package, which as you may already know includes the tutorials and quick start guides. Please note that in order to use these materials you do not necessarily require the trial version as this can be run on the fully licensed version of Developer. Please log-in to eCognition community (http://community.ecognition.com/) to download these quick-start packages.
Your application is running under Quick Map mode which does not give access to Process Tree window. Switch to Rule Set mode to get access to Process Tree window.
eCog Developer application can be run in two different modes Quick Map mode, Rule Set mode from v8 onwards. Quick Map mode is developed to perform quick and easy image classification for entry level users, whereas Rule Set mode is meant for advanced rule-set writing.
