Subject Re: Use commons code in GPLed web application ?
Date Fri, 05 Mar 2004 13:32:32 GMT
IMHO (warning: not necessarily the legal view of Apache),

If you are just using the jars as libraries, you can release your 
project under a license of your choice, Apache license is not viral.

If you take sourcecode from Apache, alter it, and/or include it into 
your project, that sourcecode (and only that sourcecode) needs to 
maintain the Apache license headers. You will also probably want to 
include information at the root of your project that it contains 
modified Apache licensed code.
