Subject Re: Activation and Mail jars to be open source'd - What's CDDL license?
Date Fri, 29 Jul 2005 14:17:23 GMT
CDDL (Common Development and Distribution License -- see
http://www.sun.com/cddl/) is Sun's new open source license. They use
it for Solaris 10 and some Java reference implementations (e.g.,
J2EE.) It's based on the Mozilla Public License. It's viral, but it's
incompatible (not composable) with GPL and LGPL. It supports an
encapsulated library reuse and distribution model similar to LGPL, so
Apache could redistribute CDDL libraries as long as it doesn't make
any modification to the libraries.
