Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2332) RTC Put the generated xmlbeans files for the j2ee 1.4 schemas in svn in a spec module so we don't need the schemas in svn at all

Guillaume Nodet commented on GERONIMO-2332:
-------------------------------------------

We won' t end up with only 1 files. We can easily do the transformation on a per schema basis,
though jaxb would not work for dtds.
But it seems the only copyrighted stuff are the 1.4 schemas, so...

But looking once more at the schema license,
      This document and the technology which it describes are
      distributed under licenses restricting their use, copying,
      distribution, and decompilation. No part of this document
      may be reproduced in any form by any means without prior
      written authorization of Sun and its licensors, if any.

IANAL, but do you think the term decompilation could be applied 
to such a transformation ?

> See GERONIMO-2307.  It seems that the option with the least legal exposure is to not
distribute and sun schema files and not have any in our svn.  This is a proposed spec module
that uses a m2 profile to pull the schemas from suns website (where they are freely available),
run xmlbeans on them, and remove the copies of the schemas that xmlbeasn helpfully tries to
include in the output.  We can then check this stuff into svn.
> A normal non-profile build then just builds these sources into a jar.  We can replace
the xmlbeans step in j2ee-schema with a geronimo dependency on this new spec jar.
