Subject [jira] [Commented] (TAVERNA-898) Review JTreeTable license
Date Mon, 15 Feb 2016 10:19:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAVERNA-898?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15147168#comment-15147168
] 

Stian Soiland-Reyes commented on TAVERNA-898:
---------------------------------------------

I updated https://github.com/apache/incubator-taverna-workbench/blob/master/NOTICE to reflect
the license - but the treetable files themselves need to be updated from a newer archive.org
file - probably the Sun folks forgot to update all the source code files in the zip.

says the embedded JTreeTAble code is under a BSD license, however the individual files say
otherwise:
> https://github.com/apache/incubator-taverna-workbench/blob/master/taverna-ui/src/main/java/org/apache/taverna/lang/ui/treetable/TreeTableModel.java
> {code}

> While the original pages are gone from sun.com - a visit at archive.org for the relevant
dates:
> https://web.archive.org/web/20040404152740/http://java.sun.com/products/jfc/tsc/articles/treetable2/index.html
> both src.zip there and https://web.archive.org/web/20040409021100/http://java.sun.com/products/jfc/tsc/articles/treetable2/src/TreeTableModel.java
has the same restrictive header.
> However if you jump forward in time the license headers are updated: 
> https://web.archive.org/web/20080409134553/http://java.sun.com/products/jfc/tsc/articles/treetable2/src/TreeTableModel.java
> Perhaps we just have to play code detective and update our treetable/ folder use a newer
version of this example code - even if we have to get it from archive.org the license would
still be valid.
