Subject [jira] Closed: (LEGAL-30) Options for including bridge code to prohibited works
Date Sat, 19 Dec 2009 07:35:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-30?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Henri Yandell closed LEGAL-30.

    Resolution: Later

Closing this. It's a part of the draft we've not tried to bring over, and in the last couple
of years have had very little in the way of driving use cases to want to bring over. 

> Options for including bridge code to prohibited works
> -----------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: LEGAL-30
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-30
>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Sebb
> The 3rd party policy says:
> "YOU MAY include code within the Apache product necessary to achieve compatibility with
a prohibited work through the use of API calls, "bridge code", or protocols, provided that
the compatibility code was contributed under a CLA."
> In the case of Java code, the easiest way to build bridge code is to include a copy of
the prohibited work in the classpath when compiling the code.
> This means that the prohibited work is a requirement for building the Apache product,
and would need to be provided somehow by the builder.
> Is the build process allowed to unconditionally depend on a prohibited work?
> If the build process can be modified to conditionally build the bridge code when the
prohibited work is present, is that OK?
> Or must the bridge code be buildable without the presence of the prohibited work?
> [e.g. in Java this can be done with reflection]
