Subject Struts - Licensing and Derivative Work
Date Wed, 02 Feb 2005 00:53:45 GMT
I have a doubt regarding the licensing of Struts and
Derivative Works made by third parties, I hope you can
help me figure it out.

I'm brainstorming a framework very similar to Struts
in its behavior but it is intended not to run in a web
environment, nor follow de servlet expecification.
I want to replicate some of the behavior of Struts,
like the Validator package, but I can use the package
as it is because it is tied to the servlet API.

My assuption is that IF I could copy the validator
package, change some parts as to not use the servlet
API, retaining the copyright from the ASF, adding
proper credits to the Struts team in the
documentation, adding the proper NOTICE changes and
applying the ASF to the framework, thus creating a new
package for this new framework, is it within the legal
bounds of the License?  am I allowed to do that?

Or do I have to find another way to replicate the
desired behavior?

Thank you for your time,

Ing. Andres Almiray Jaramillo
