Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS-1806) axis does not include license agreements for third party jar files it re-distributes
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2005 21:16:12 GMT
     [ ]
Tom Jordahl commented on AXIS-1806:

We build our code for jaxrpc.jar and saaj.jar, so our license covers those.  We generally
do not ship activation or mail, perhaps these just got included in an RC by mistake (they
are not checked in to our tree).

As for the others, we probably only have to worry about wsdl4j.jar as the others are covered
by the Apache license (which we do ship) and we have been shipping wsdl4j.jar from the first,
which doesn't make it right, but it isn't a new thing.

Thanks for pointing this out.

> Axis is in violation of mutiple license agreements with the jar files that you are shipping
- namely - the licenses for 
> activation.jar, commons*.jar, jaxrpc.jar, log4j-1.2.8.jar, mail.jar, saaj.jar, and wsdl4j.jar.
> All of these licenses explictly require that the license be included with any distribution
- this came to my attention when I tried to distribute something that uses axis - and I had
to track down licenses for all of these files.
> I can't be sure that I have the right license, however - as I don't know what versions
of each of these files you are using.  If there is a different license for different versions,
I may not have the right one.
> You should really stay on top of this stuff.
