I recommend reading the SQL Server licensing guide: http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/3/C/73CAD4E0-D0B5-4BE5-AB49-D5B886A5AE00/SQL_Server_2012_Licensing_Reference_Guide.pdf

Particularly the topic: Licensing SQL Server for Non-production Use

Short answer- Yes, as long as all users are licensed.

Also, be sure to check with your vendor or Microsoft. My non-legal interpretation says that only those users that actually modify database objects need to be licensed in the test environment. Testers (or users) using the application to manipulate data within the data base do not need to have a license in a test environment. But again, that is my opinion and not legal binding advice. Please be sure to consult with Microsoft.

We have had this same question. And after checking with some Microsoft licensing expert, we had the following answer: Confirmed with Microsoft, no additional license required for the business end user in this case.

Only the developers need a license for the Developer Edition. The end-users if they use the own build or bought application, don’t need an extra license.

Also be aware that, unless this has changed, it only allows two concurrent connections. This may be an issue if multiple people need to connect at the same time for dev, some for use, etc.
