Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-53) Update Derby doco regarding free DB2 Universal Driver license restrictions

     [ http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-53?page=comments#action_55015 ]
John Sisson commented on DERBY-53:

Thanks for the response Kathy, for some reason I interpreted the "1" as being only allowed
on "one" Home/Portable computer. 


This issue can be closed, as the license isn't restrictive like I thought.

> Update Derby doco regarding free DB2 Universal Driver license restrictions
> --------------------------------------------------------------------------
>          Key: DERBY-53
>          URL: http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-53
>      Project: Derby
>         Type: Task
>   Components: Documentation
>     Reporter: John Sisson
>     Priority: Minor

> In a number of places, the Derby documentation points users to the IBM DB2 JDBC Universal
Driver and in a number of places uses the words "free download".  
> It is true that the "download" is free, but what is not obvious on the Derby or IBM web
pages is that the free license for the IBM DB2 JDBC Universal Driver (downloaded via the links
in the Derby documentation) restricts use to a Home/Portable Computer (refer to the Lic_en.txt
file that accompanies the driver).
> ** This rules out use of the driver (without paying a license fee to IBM) on servers
or on your company desktop. **
> I suggest that the Derby documentation be updated wherever it provides a link to the
IBM DB2 JDBC Universal Driver, to mention that the license accompanying the free download
has some usage restrictions.
> Some of the pages that reference the driver are:
> http://incubator.apache.org/derby/manuals/admin/hubprnt09.html
> http://incubator.apache.org/derby/derby_resources.html
> http://incubator.apache.org/derby/manuals/getstart/gspr36.html
