Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-76) Can we include binary copies of JavaMail and JAF in distributions?

Daniel Kulp commented on LEGAL-76:
----------------------------------


I believe the compilation downloaded from that link is under that license.

HOWEVER, the mail jar itself is under the CDDL license.   Category B. 

If you check the META-INF/LICENSE.txt in:
http://download.java.net/maven/2/javax/mail/mail/1.4.3/mail-1.4.3.jar
http://download.java.net/maven/2/javax/mail/mail/1.4.3/mail-1.4.3-sources.jar

You see they are CDDL.    Even if you download the above javamail compilation zip and extract
it, the mail.jar in there has the CDDL license in it.

Thus, at best, the situation is muddy.  :-)

> Is the JavaMail license compatible with category B?
> It is not released under SPL as far as I can tell.
> The license is at:

> Click download
> Click JavaMail License Agreement.
> Similarly for Javabeans Activation Framework (JAF):
