> Geronimo redistributes the Sun J2EE schema files for deployment descriptors etc but doesn't
appear to include anything in the global license file about it.  
> The following two statement in the copyright text in the schema files  (e.g. http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/ejb-jar_2_1.xsd
) concern me:
> * 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.
> Considering the first point, we need to determine what license the files are under. 
Seems we need written authorization for the second point.
> The concern regarding copyrights for the schemas came to mind whilst testing the geronimo
eclipse plugin, eclipse prompted me to acknowledge the Sun license at http://developers.sun.com/license/berkeley_license.html
when caching the j2ee schema files (e.g. http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/ejb-jar_2_1.xsd ).
> I can't find anything to confirm that the berkeley license displayed by eclipse is the
correct license for the schemas.
