Subject RE: Using Apache POI in a commercial module
Date Wed, 20 May 2015 10:41:15 GMT
Hello again

Apologies for the lengthy email, I'm hoping to make sure that we are complying correctly with
the Apache license requirements before deploying our software.

We will shortly be deploying our commercial module (JAR file) within our end customer's Java
based environment.

We are using Apache POI to open/edit/save Excel files using primarily the following packages:


The following Apache libraries are compiled inside our JAR file, so the deployment unit is
just our single JAR:


We will be installing the JAR file within the customer's system ourselves. The application
is designed to run in an automated fashion (it produces monthly reports), so the customer
does not have direct access to the JAR file, and our application is not intended to be extended
by any other developers.

Compiling with Eclipse has automatically inserted several "LICENSE.txt" and "NOTICE.txt" files
into our JAR, there seem to be 2 versions of each which are similar to each other, please
see attached.

Is there anything else that we need to do before deployment, to ensure we are complying with
the license?

Thanks for any help,

Kind regards

Within a handful of rules/restrictions, that should be fine. Please see http://poi.apache.org/legal.html
and the links to the Apache License, Version 2.0 from there
