Subject RE: [VOTE:PMC] Release Tapestry to Jakarta
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2003 02:40:08 GMT
Parts of the Tapestry demos are compiled using J2EE APIs (EJB, JDNI, Mail).

Certain of the demos make use of an LGPL library for drawing charts and
graphs.

As a convienience, Tapestry expects a JBoss installation to be present.
jboss.dir is the absolute path to the JBoss installation.

My understanding of licenses is apparently suspect. Although I'm aware of
the problems even compiling against GPL, I had thought that LGPL is a
different beast.  Andrew C. Oliver has been making noises that not only can
I not have LGPL frameworks in CVS or as part of the distribution (those that
were in place have been removed, replaced with pointers on where to download
them from), but now there's a question of even compiling against such
frameworks.
