Subject [jira] Commented: (VALIDATOR-274) Writing the source code of JSR-303 Bean Validation API(s).
Date Wed, 22 Apr 2009 14:56:48 GMT


Donald Woods commented on VALIDATOR-274:

It's kind of a grey area (some people still believe we should use the Specs as-is and not
duplicate any of them), but what we have followed for the other Java EE Specs in Geronimo
with prior discussions with the ASF Legal (which can always change), is that:
1) The API (and any Impl code) must be created/typed in from scratch, which means no cut-n-paste
of text from RI files or Spec doc (which is covered by Copyright.)  You can read the public
Spec docs and then recreate the package structure and type in the method signatures verbatim.
2) NO Java Doc can be included from the RI or Spec Doc AS-IS (as it is covered by Copyright),
but any IDE auto-generated headers, block elements, method comments and Java Doc (like can
be created via Eclipse) can be included.
