> Discuss license issue with javax.cache library
> ----------------------------------------------
>                 Key: YARN-6996
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-6996
>             Project: Hadoop YARN
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.0-beta1
>            Reporter: Ray Chiang
>            Assignee: Ray Chiang
> With YARN Federation, we added YARN-3672, which adds the following to 
> {noformat}
>     <groupId>javax.cache</groupId>
>     <artifactId>cache-api</artifactId>
> {noformat}
> This third-party library has some murky license history, as documented in this [really
long comment thread|https://github.com/jsr107/jsr107spec/issues/333].  The summary of the
thread is that "the library is officially APL (take our word for it), but there hasn't been
a subsequent release with the license file change".
> LEGAL-325 has been filed to discuss the validity of this license for Apache.
> Before we get to final Hadoop 3 release, I'm wondering if anyone else has concerns about
using this library.  Just from looking at the various javax Maven artifacts in our pom.xml
files, I see a lot of other javax.* library entries (although we may not ship the .jars if
they're part of the Java runtime).
