Subject Re: license for gpl3 wrapper?
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 15:51:40 GMT

as far as I understand, if you make any direct API calls to the GPLv3 library, your code needs
to be GPLv3 as well. 

It may be possible to dual-license it under the ASL 2.0 and the GPLv3, so that it can be used
under the ASL 2.0 in the case all references to GPLv3 code are removed. I'd be curious if
anybody else considers this a valid approach, because I'm actually considering to do that
dual-license thing with some code we have that currently links to to GPL-ed libraries.

I do not think it is mandatory to credit UIMA at all. I suppose a mention on the website for
your libraries or possible in the README.txt file of your project wouldn't hurt. If you are
on the scientific side, there are several papers related to UIMA, e.g. this one
