Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (ATLAS-2084) Make berkeley DB backed Atlas available without external download
Date Wed, 25 Oct 2017 10:41:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-2084?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16218365#comment-16218365

---------------------------------------------------------------

The main Berkeley DB page is at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/database-technologies/berkeleydb/overview/index.html


The latest version is 7.4.5 (JE) - pulling the tar apart we see that the library is licensed
under the GNU AFFERO GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 3

Referring to https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html it's clear the gnu affero license
IS NOT PERMITTED for being bundled with apache projects

For this reason I will have to close this JIRA - it seems we cannot include the berkeleyDB
libraries within Atlas. Not a huge issue as this is primarily for devs, and other persistance
options can be used.

Closing.

> In https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ATLAS-2012 I proposed providing a dockerized
version of Atlas to aid people getting up to speed with the technology. During the review
it was noted that we had used Hbase for storage rather than the more lightweight, simpler,
BerkeleyDB. My concern had been around licensing.
> Today when we build Atlas following the instructions at http://atlas.apache.org/InstallationSteps.html
the user is directed to download the berkeleyDB jar from oracle. In ATLAS-2012 David/Graham
pointed out that this DB appears to be Apache 2.0 licensed, which means we could incorporate
it into our build legitimately.
> Given the necessity to get licensing correct I've opened up this new JIRA to focus on
that change. We would need to
>  * Validate we are indeed correct about the license
>  * Add the DB file into the build
>  * Update the web instructions
>  * And optionally as per the original JIRA, consider making B-DB the default for our
docker image (most lightweight).
> Please add your thoughts. I'm happy to get and do this change .
