Subject Re: Heads-up / opinions? - BCEL -> tt-bytecode
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2002 09:47:00 GMT


I'm a bit concerned about the license implications. I haven't read the BSD
license, but presumably its terms and conditions are different to the
Apache license that applies to the other jars which are checked in. This
could affect people who want to reuse Axis. At the very least, you need to
check in a license file alongside the tt-bytecode jar file.

Also, I guess Gump won't have access to the latest level of the tt-bytecode
jar file, so problems may arise if people combine Axis with newer levels of
tt-bytecode .

Would a better strategy perhaps be to get bcel improved and possibly back
off to using javap (or whatever preceded the user of bcel in Axis) for any
missing features until then?

Having said all this, I know you will consider the above issues and I trust
your judgement, so I vote +0.
