Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-3773) WebConsole uses library with ASL-incompatible licence
Date Mon, 05 Jan 2015 09:38:34 GMT

Felix Meschberger commented on FELIX-3773:
------------------------------------------

I like this very much. We should get started with some concepts of how to build the next generation
Web Console and its API. We can still see how we can support old Web Console 3/4 plugins with
some kind of a compat/bridge bundle.

As for JSON, I am really fine. As for RPC, I am more weary -- I prefer proper REST style.
:-)

As for plugin.*: Sounds like a good approach. Since we would have .html, .css, and .js in
most cases, we might want to define a plugin service registration property setting the base
name where the property defaults to "plugin" if missing. The reason fo adding another service
property is to allow for multiple plugins with different helper files to be embedded in a
single bundle (e.g. the Web Console Core bundle itself).

>             Project: Felix
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Web Console
>    Affects Versions: webconsole-4.0.0
>            Reporter: Neil Bartlett
>            Priority: Critical

> WebConsole uses the JSON library from json.org that contains the following term in its
licence (http://www.json.org/license.html):
> "The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil."
> I believe that this restriction is incompatible with the ASL.
