Subject Re: License of used 3rd party component Berkeley DB - clarification needed
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2011 17:07:31 GMT
Moin Oliver,

http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-x

especially mentions the Sleepycat License (this is the license of BDB). 
So there should be no doubt that it is not AL compatible.

According to

http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html

it it GPL compatible.

Regards,
Mathias
