Subject JAF and JAVAMAIL redistribution ...
Date Wed, 18 Dec 2002 00:20:54 GMT

i have just checked on website license for JAF and JavaMail

and currently the license has:

*(...) 2. License to Distribute Software.*  In addition to the license 
granted in Section 1 (Software Internal Use and Development License 
Grant) of these Supplemental Terms, subject to the terms and conditions 
of this Agreement, including but not limited to, Section 3 (Java 
Technology Restrictions) of these Supplemental Terms, Sun grants you a 
non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to reproduce and 
distribute the Software in binary code form only, provided that you (i) 
distribute the Software complete and unmodified and only bundled as part 
of your Programs, (ii) do not distribute additional software intended to 
replace any component(s) of the Software, (iii) do not remove or alter 
any proprietary legends or notices contained in the Software, (iv) only 
distribute the Software subject to a license agreement that protects 
Sun's interests consistent with the terms contained in this Agreement, 
and (v) agree to defend and indemnify Sun and its licensors from and 
against any damages, costs, liabilities, settlement amounts and/or 
expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred in connection with any 
claim, lawsuit or action by any third party that arises or results from 
the use or distribution of any and all Programs and/or Software. (...)

so it seems that we may be able to distribute those jar as part of WSIF 
(and maybe AXIS as well) but i am not 100% sure what exactly are 
implications of (v) and (vi). does anybody know more about it and is 
wishing to share information about it?
