Subject Re: SSL and JCE
Date Tue, 12 Nov 2013 05:49:20 GMT
My MacOSX 1.6 jdk seems to have the crypto extensions jce builtin and
the build+test works. JDK 1.7 install does not have them though.

The JCE kit seems to carry a BCL which is not ASF friendly [1]. But
this being part of the Java install and not the project it should be
okay IMO if we note it in our wiki on building the project.

As for legal aspects - I found this which might be of some relevance.
