Subject [jira] [Commented] (JENA-241) Add support for SAP database
Date Thu, 03 May 2012 11:28:48 GMT


Andy Seaborne commented on JENA-241:

Fergal - please do make this contribution.

Unless you already have a signed and Apache ICLA, or there is a CCLA on file, that covers
this work, then the route is probably to make a software grant to the Apache Software Foundation.
This is the normal process and SAP legal may well already be familiar with the process. SAP
have previous made contributed to the Apache Chemistry project via a software grant.

and the grant template is:

The other route is to submit a aptch to this JIRA -- that will ask you (the submitter) to
make a declaration that the project can use the code.  Having the software grant also achieves
this but it makes it easier for it to be signed by any appropriate person from SAP.

Do ask any questions - if necessary we can involve the legal team at Apache but as described
here so far, this is a common situation covered by well-established software grant process.

> I would like to contribute my complete and tested patch to make SDB compatible with SAP's
new in-memory, column-store (-possible) database codenamed HANA. I followed the instructions
here [1] to the letter, created the patch and tested by applying it cleanly. Now I can run
SPARQL endpoints on top of SAP's DB, and I'd like everyone else to be able to do this too.
I just need to check with SAP legal before I attach the patch to this issue as described at
[1]. Keep up the good work guys!
