Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "LuceneConnectorFrameworkProposal" by KarlWright

Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "LuceneConnectorFrameworkProposal" page has been changed by KarlWright.
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/LuceneConnectorFrameworkProposal?action=diff&rev1=5&rev2=6

--------------------------------------------------

  
  Code IP grants need to be made from MetaCarta, Inc.  But, in addition, several connectors
(notably Documentum, LiveLink, Memex, and FileNet) rely directly on client API's in order
to be compiled.  Another connector (JDBC) relies on the existence of the Oracle JDBC Driver
in the classpath in order to enable crawls against Oracle databases.
  
- It is unlikely that EMC, OpenText, Memex, or IBM would grant Apache-license-compatible use
of these client libraries.  Thus, the expectation is that users of these connectors obtain
the necessary client libraries from the owners prior to building or using the corresponding
connector.  An alternative would be to undertake a clean-room implementation of the client
API's, which may well yield suitable results in some cases (FileNet, Memex, FileNet), while
being out of reach in others (Documentum).  Conditional compilation, for the short term, is
thus likely to be a necessity.

  Other external dependencies, such as jCIFS for the Share Connector, are licensed with LGPL,
and thus may need to be treated in a manner similar to the closed API's even though they are
open source.  These include the postgresql JDBC driver, and JTDS.
