Subject GPL'd OSGi bundles
Date Tue, 08 May 2007 06:49:27 GMT
Dear all,

I have a very general OSGi related question. What happens if someone
writes an OSGi bundle under the GPL licence and registers a service from
that bundle in the framework?

My understanding is that the framework cannot really be said to "link"
to the bundle and cannot be considered as forming a new program with it.
And other bundles that lookup this service cannot know in advance what
licence will be covering its providing bundle.

Is my understanding correct?

(I cannot use the LGPL, by the way. My work might include other GPL'd

Kind regards,
