Subject [jira] [Commented] (AMQ-3491) Investigate and resolve LGPL dependency via camel-web
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2011 14:02:55 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMQ-3491?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13152878#comment-13152878
] 

Michael Hayes commented on AMQ-3491:
------------------------------------

First I have to say I really appreciate the decisive action on this unfortunate issue - you
guys did the right thing.

I have a suggestion for the future (and for all ASF projects, really). 
Would you consider running something like Black Duck Protex or equivalent as part of pre-release
testing - to assure users that there are no license incompatability issues? 
Maybe running the checks just for major releases at least?
{color:red}*If every ASF project could access some license-checking tool*{color} (and use
it as a pre-release check) it would add great value to the ASF brand - assuring users that
*all reasonable steps* have been taken to avoid any licensing difficulties.

> May be related to trimmed down distro that uses old camel web.

> ActiveMQ 5.5.0's distro includes Jaffl 0.5.1 which is
> LGPL. I traced this down to the distro containing an unpacked
> camel-web 2.4.0 war, which has several org.jruby:jruby dependencies in
> it. My read is that this is a problem because of:
> http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved#category-x
> I also noted that the distro includes org.jruby.ext.posix:jnr-posix
> which may be LGPL/GPL and also org.jruby.extras:jffi:1.0.1 which
> appears to be LGPL as well.
> The following artifacts have gaffl in them:
